Accidental Artists

Andrew Smith

I often find myself when I'm reviewing images saying things like "you know, that looks a bit like ...."

I'm sure that I'm not unique in this and, in my case, it probably betrays a life-long frustration at my inability to paint anything other than a skirting board.

However, these four images (amongst many others) struck me as being reminiscent of the work of some of the artists near to my heart, in this case Bonnard, Monet, Klimt and Kandisnky.

I would stress that this is entirely accidental and in no case did I consciously set out to emulate such masters.

Perhaps with more conscious consideration I could have done each of them more justice, but I like the accidental and spontanious nature of these.
