Swimming directions

With it being the summer holidays, I've been busy with work and random holidays to Filey and Leeds Festival, both were amazing and spent with my closest peeps. I've also celebrated my 21st birthday, aye I'm getting quite old now, but the one thing missing was any artistic influence apart from photographs and the odd location drawing. Which i may put up sometime soon. When the holidays started my stepdad met a tree surgeon on his milk round and was cheeky enough to recieve two lovely pieces of wood from the tree. As we always have problems with delivery drivers finding it hard to find our house he decided he wanted some signs made. So looking through typography books, i drew out the text, allowing jud enough room to cut this out. The signs were then varnished and ready for me to paint. I've never been able to use oil paints, but after a while found them extremely easy to use, and a challenge to paint on wood. So now with a week to go before heading back to falmouth, I think the creativeness has flooded back in. I'm looking forward to the year to come, Hopefully there will be more posts up very soon :)
