I usually explore more than one path at the same time, inspired by the things I encounter. So drawing out details, collaging, doing watercolours of urban greenery, and painting acrylic scenes... Like this view from my window: www.facebook.com/annabelleforteartist/. I don’t know whether to confess this or not, but every time I start painting after a while of not painting, I look at the results and think: I don’t know HOW to paint – and now I’ll have to tell everyone. Ok, so it’s rough impressions I’m doing in a morning or afternoon. They don’t have to be perfect. I realize now that, at home, I’ve created a very useful environment and I have all my tools within easy reach. Makes me aware that I need to respect the creative process and its time. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Good art doesn’t suddenly emerge. It takes hard work and practice. This first painting step allowed me, in any case, to ‘feel’ the shapes and planes of the urban landscape.
