Why speak of oneself in the third person?

 

It’s your personal website. Be as personal as you can, your turn here.

A little typographic brushing might do well.

 

Reel is charming. I should love to see some black and white.

Do you draw?

Thanks, for taking the time to give me some feedback.

 

I take your point about the 3rd person.  Some people prefer to read 3rd some prefer 1st.  

 

I'd love to shoot some black and white, just waiting on the right project to come along.

 

I don't draw, I'm interested what made you ask?

Black and white is to draw, rather, colours is to paint. Closer to painting and areas

 

Everything begins in the dark, black, then enlightens through shades of grey to white, the idea dropping into one’s mind, if I may say so. The sketch is in distinct lines, chalk on a blackboard or ink on paper for example. Only then come the colours. White light dissected by the p(a)rism(a). First the irritating ultraviolet, a hue that has never been seen on a photograph, nor on any cinema screen. It is not possible to have ultraviolet on LCDs. Even violet is hardly available on paper and not at all with trichrome film.

 

I thought that as a Beaconsfield trainee you’d have some drawing skills. Excuse my romantic excursion
