    Hi all,

    I have always wanted to be able to paint direct, rather than relying on initial pencil sketches. I understand that this is not always a viable option but I am determined to give it a go and see what comes of it. Below are some examples that i tried today:

    As always all comments and critiques welcomed.

    Really well done. Martin. The hardest thing is to get the proper shape when you don’t draw it first, but you have done it here. Good work.

    Hi Martin,
    That way of painting you seem to do easily. (Don’t know the expression in English ). Looking like a modern piece of artwork!

    Hi Martin, great start to ‘letting go’. Did you like this exercise? I really enjoy painting without pre-sketch, it makes me pay more attention to what I’m doing.
    Nice work.
