Recording an event through art.

I like to use my camera(s) to record events that I am involved in.   At my leisure, later on, I can download the photographs and make a drawing or painting of the particular project.   Here, I am enjoying a drive in a Peugeot WRX – courtesy of the popular Conduire @ Loheac.fr   in Brittany.  Luckily for me, the weather was good  – which added to my enjoyment.

 I mentioned cameras as I use a combination of a Fuji Finepix, a mobile phone camera and a Go Pro  to record whatever I want.   And |I take lots of photographs too, as even minute differences in positioning, light and so forth, can make huge changes to what I actually require as an artwork.

Because I work directly onto paper/canvas, I need a good quality reproduction, i.e. photo so that my artwork can be reasonably accurate.   And although I can make a lot of adjustments via the computor to any photograph, if it is not clear, or too dark, or too bright, the artwork will suffer!       My cameras are not new, nor particularly expensive and I know their foibles…..as well as my own limitations as a photographer………Anne Peugeot 2018)

A seriously challenging event. Ink and Crayon on paper.

UGHHHHHH……Driving a a very fast Subaru Impreza Rally Car on a high speed and extremely slippy WRX circuit is, as I well know…….challenging!!!.   But actually, it isn’t quite as challenging, as when I was driving our Fiat Racing car on a Track-day event,  just as I was setting up the car for a fast left-hand bend – a truly ENORMOUS BLACK SPIDER   scuttled up my right arm and across my hand…………………….!!!!Fiat Anne
