FOWC with Fandango: Draw


Now this is going to be a short one. Me draw? Forget it. The painting above is a graffiti on a wall in our town, probably one of those midnight scribbles from the youth, but it is even better than what I could do.

Not that I do not have an artistic streak. I can do wonders with a camera, but all I have to do is press the button. I had art lessons at school, I had no choice, but I was not outstanding. I think if they had told me to draw a straight line it would not have worked.

Some people can just do it with no problem. Give Mr. Swiss a pencil and paper or a paint box and he creates a work of art with no problem. He had lessons as a young teenager from an artist, although he had the talent already. How come he can do it and I cannot. I must say he understands art. We have visited many exhibitions and art galleries and he introduced me to the world of painting, that I actually now recognise who painted what. I am more into the surreal stuff, my favourite painter being René Margritte, a Belgien painter. His painting of a man with an apple in front of his head I find brilliant. I even based one of my photos on it borrowing the cat next door.

    • I cannot draw or paint, except for walls and furniture, and that is more luck than judgement. Mr. Swiss is süper artist, he has the gift. I stick to photography, that also has its artistic side.


  1. brilliant, Mrs Magritta…. 🙂 I love him too and kept for the longest time his Son of a Man and Ceci n’est pas une pipe posters in my desk…. Any exhibition of his always makes me smile and I never get tired of him – when are you doing your animal-fruit-show, Mrs Magritta?!

    • I find his paintings fascinating, but I can only copy them in a photo. I would love to see the originals. Inshould have visited my son when he was doing his three years in Brussels as a Swiss diplomat. They have a Margritte museum there
