    I disagree... Everyone belongs here! Some people create the art and some people enjoy it. Just imagine going to play a gig and there was nobody there to listen :ohno: The audience is just as much part of the experience as the artist. Kind of a symbiotic relationship if you will :thumb:

    I adored your paintings Heket, specially the watercolors!

    I cannot see myself doing such a piece of artwork. This is the kind of stuff that I think that the person has to born with the gift to do. I do not have this gift and admire whose has it!

    Cheers!

    :)

    My sentiments, exactly. The watercolours are really nice.

    Heket, did you notice I used the English spelling, "watercolours", versus the American, "watercolors?"

    I did that just for you, because the paintings were so nice!

    Very good Smitty! This English lady approves :applause:

    Everyone seems to like the watercolours. Watercolour has the element of least control out of all the artistic mediums, some people fight it and learn to rein it in, others (such as myself) embrace the chaos. It's the medium I feel most attracted to and thus have the greatest comfort in using despite being very new to it. I've used acrylics for ages but don't like them so never really made any good art with them. Funny how that works. I guess the same could be said for guitars and amps and genres of music too.

    Beautiful paintings and drawings in this thread! Any more would most certainly be welcome.

    Watercolor is like a jam session, the music just happens as is, no retouching, you see the brushstrokes, and it's immediate. The studio is where you can do musical oil painting - and takes longer.

    Both are wonderful.

    Just discovered this thread. Nice work Heket.
    I do this professionally, I've made it my living for the past ... geez ... 36 years.

    These are the three most recent I made. Last one is still wet.

    She doesn't post here much at all anymore. I wish she did though. She's intelligent, talented, and very pretty! :D

    I'm another lacking in the talent. My wife on the other hand, that's what she does. Custom orders boys and girls!!! I'm trying to finish her shop now.
    Nice work Heket!

    Say what now? :D Oh, you were talking about the owl...

    I lurk. I don't play guitar really any more so I feel a bit out of place and I don't get into gear discussions so much as I'm happy and settled with all my instruments.

    Thanks for the comments and DrB I love your work! Owls have always been a love of mine and I like the use of large areas of space and texture. I art less now because I'm busy with bass practice and I have to be mindful of how I use my hands (especially now I joined a band!) but I'd love to get into some more painting.

    Thanks for giving us Art as an intransitive verb! But you have a band - are you playing gigs? I mean where, when? I'll happily go along and hoot and holler.

    It's shorter than saying paint/draw/pastel etc. Sometimes when I'm going to art I don't know what will happen!

    Haha, well it's a ukulele group. I've been asked several times to join before as they needed a bassist and this is the one opportunity I can take with both hands because no one will care if I use a U-bass or have to take breaks and only play short sets. I don't think they do anything other than local performances for friends and family (I went to one last week) but if they do I'll give you a shout. I think I might be expected to play at the Uke Fest in Essex that the shop that organises the bands is running in July next year.

    You'd better! Uke is the "other" instrument for so many guitarists, from George Harrison to Joe Brown and even Clapton. It has achieved incredible underground cool. And just FYI, mine is blue. I'm thinking your little acoustic/electric bass is a pretty perfect match for all those ukes?

    You mean this thing? This video is 6 months old and I've come a long way since then, but it's the last video I did with the U-bass.

    I love the sound of the bass - it's somewhere between an electric and an upright - and it has much more low end than anything that size is entitled to.

    Two good things - to be happy with your instruments and to join a band (when you want to!).
