About Blogs and Bloging

As I've had a bit of time lately I thought I would slightly alter the appearance of my blog and I've given it a plain grey background which I think ties in nicely with the look of my website.  I've also started the list of blogs and websites on the right hand side here and I thought I would take the opportunity to mention  a few of the blogs I have a look at on a fairly regular basis which I've got interested in over the last couple of years and which got me interested in starting this blog.    Most of these I've only really discovered through looking at art blogs and more recently a few others discovered through facebook.  


I've worked with the Griffin Art  group based in Danbury for a number of years now (I really can't remember exactly when we started out but its always been a pleasure to meet up 3 or 4 times a year with them and this was the first art blog I came across.


I discovered Adebanji's blog through his website address which I saw in an art magazine  and it was like opening up and Aladins cave of interesting articles both about Adebanji's but also lots of interesting links to other web sites and blogs of other artists and organisations.   Here's a few:


Making a mark is a fantastic blog written by Katherine Tyrrell.  As she say's at the beginning of her blog she "writes about art for artists and art lovers on her top art blog" and it really is a fantastic resource.

Olha Pryymak is an artist whose work I've enjoyed following for the last couple of years.

There's a few artists whose work I enjoy seeing on this site which changes on a daily basis and this was one of the sites I got interested in which displays work by artists who paint mainly small paintings on a daily basis and post them to the site each day.

I love to have a look at this blog from time to time which displays the work of sketching correspondent's around the world who post there sketches of urban environments all drawn directly in front of the subject.  There's also a  link on the blog to a flickr page with a wider pool of artists which I've occasionally contributed to.
