The Midnight Hare page 7


Widened and shortened the images so as to get the text underneath. Still trying to get used to my all-singing, all singing, and therefore frustrating, up-to-date version of Photoshop.  Not that I use it for painting, but nothing replaces it for setting up images. If I publish the book myself I shall have to widen my repertoire of Adobe, but for the moment, beautiful complex irritating Photoshop will do.  I shall have to start reading the manual for dummies.

  1. Dear Cara, thank you for your very kind words about the Paxton exhibition, and everything else you have commented on, very encouraging indeed coming from a fellow artist such as yourself! Your photos are really good but it is even better to see some of your wonderful drawings on the blog, the new book looks magical, and I hope the dummies/artists guide to Photoshop helps you finish it! Hope to see you, and the book, soon! Olivia

    • Lovely to hear from you, Olivia. The Hayloft Exhibition was very special, with such a wide range of feeling. I like the idea of having those display cabinets so you get some idea of the processes involved. Tony thought thought the horse carrying the armaments was an astonishing drawing. Thank you for your remarks about The Midnight Hare, I am still working away, changing things as I go along, but very involved with the process, which is good, as it usually means there is something there, if one can keep up the desire to see a project through to fruition.
