Ebay Paint Haul

I brought several items from Ebay this month and I brought for new paints , for learning to paint .I was looking for cheap quality paints but with lots of colours for mixing and ex.I have brought Daler Rowney paint before and it lasted for years. So I thought I would try them again.

The first one I brought was Daler Rowney Acrylic Simply 24 set ,they look lovely and its contains my favourite colour Fuchsia Pink. Look forward to using them.

The second set I brought was there Simply Oil 24 set , I was disappointed with this set as there’s no Fuschia pink colour. So I will have to mix the colour but it was a bargain at £10.95 .I will test them out in the next few weeks and see what there like. As they are the cheapest set Daley Rowney do and there for beginners not professional artists. I think there, work fine for a beginners like me.

My Canon film SLR Camera EOS 750.

This is my SLR film camera I brought about two years ago because I couldn’t afford a Digital one.Its a little gem and dirty cheap.Its quite fun to use too. It was about £45 including the lens.It’s quite heavy though but I am sure it will take beautiful photos.

I usually surf the internet to learn more about film photography,as I am not a fan of reading books about photography. I am more of an visual learner.I have watched a lot of YouTube videos about film photography recently.

I have a old 35mm film that needs developing and apparently it’s cheaper to develop the film yourself.But I will leave that for now and just pop too Boots for now.

I enjoy playing with the camera ,it looks so like DSLR camera.I also have a Nikon D5100 but I have no lens for it.I am saving the pennies to get a lens for my Nikon camera.I hope to buy a small film SLR Camera as the 750 eos is too heavy around alot.But that will be later. I will update my blog with the pictures soon.I hope to take some fashion photography ones when I find someone to help me take the photos.

Street Art in Hulme Manchester

As a lover of art ,I love seeing what other artists, create with a spray can. This morning I was traveling to a Sunday family breakfast , with the sun shining in Manchester. And I came across a beautiful piece of artwork. Graffiti is one of my favourite art form, sadly it isn’t appreciated by the art elites  .This form of art is hardwork. Its takes real skill to create something with just spraycans.

But its massively misunderstood ,as its seen as mainly art of the working class and disadvantage youth.Its seen as art create by people living on the fringe of society but for me .Its just a beautiful live piece of work .That passers by ,can enjoy for free .Something that some of these exclusively art gallery seem to miss.

For me art is meant to be shared with the masses, not to be use exclusively for making profit.

I  am artist because I want to remind people of what a beautiful place,to treat people the way you want to be treated .Not just to make lots of money and more out of my council flat.Money for me is a bonus not the main purpose of art,one day the art elites will realise that.And realise that you can’t eat money.

This art piece is located in the hippie district of Hulme , Manchester going into the city centre. Its was a part of Manchester I grew up in .A part where poor,disadvantage people came together to fight the system. But it got a bourgeoisie makeover  years ago and theirs only a few artist living there now.

So  people what kind of art do you love? Please share on social media. Here’s my Instagram to see what I’m snapping with a camera and what I am personally creating with my paintbrush .
