So I've had no time to do any painting as I've been working on my crochet portrait since the end of July and it's taking ages! However it's well worth the effort and it's great seeing how it's crochet by numbers (there is a website and facebook pages if anyone is interested)

I found the site by accident but was amazed at the detail you can get from creating a crochet portrait from a photograph - however they have to be quite a size to get the amount of detail so they take a while :) I'm even considering offering to take commisions if anyone had a personal photograph that they'd like turning into a crochet piece (as a wall hanging) but it woud be quite expensive to get the pattern made, the amount of yarn it takes and of course the time...but we'll see once I've finished this (I do have 2 of my grandsons that I'm planning on doing next - see, I'm addicted!!)

Anyhow, hope to be finished with this one in the next couple of weeks. I'll post updates :)

So I'm 45yrs old and live in sunny (not) Bolton in the UK. have absolutely no art training of any kind but what I lack from training I make up for by enthusiasm and the desire to keep practicing and improving and trying new things.

I love -

Oil Painting- realistic landscapes at the moment but want to have a go at more fantasy scenes
Painting wall murals
Photography - nature/landscapes and especially snow scenes
Drawing and sketching e.g. Disney characters, fairies, fantasy
Crochet and Knitting! (New hobby inspired by my 2 grandsons)
Creating Horror make up effects

I'll be posting examples of each at some point...

Anything you want to know just ask!!

Thanks for looking


P.S. More pics of my horror make up attempts and crochet and knitting projects on my blog - see link below
