Just for the joy

early work with the superb affinity designer | simon marsh

I’ve been longing to find a couple of hours to begin to get to grips with Affinity Designer, new software I’m cock-a-hoop about. After adding some super new brushes and absorbing some encouragement and samples by Frankentoon today, I’ve been completely and happily occupied this evening – and blithely thought I’d share the fruit of that delight. Just for the joy of it. Only the beginning of what I hope will be a long friendship with Affinity. But already I love it.

Everyday Art ii

Just for joy – an occasional series entitled Everyday Art – a little record of some of the beauty I see in the world about me every day. Sometimes this is seen in the art and photography of others. At others the photos or drawings will be of beautiful sights I saw with my own eyes. Everyday Art enriches life daily. I’ll enjoy revisiting it from time to time.

Friends notice I have a bit of a thing about art studios and cabins, reading nooks and elegant workspaces. And Apple. The exquisite minimalist beauty of a MacBook ranks highly in my appreciation of ‘everyday art’.

I wonder how many of us have stories, or could write fiction, centred on particular architectural or other precisely designed detail?

Grand staircases like this one enchant me. But I am also jumping ahead to thoughts of cabins, reading nooks and elegant workspaces.
