Moved back to Sheffield

After spending 6 months back home, we moved once again to Sheffield and we will be staying until 2018. I miss sketching a lot and using oil colors on large canvases. Can't find the time actually but hopefully next month I will. I've been assigned to be a photographer for a bowling team and was very lucky to meet an artist among the team. His name is Joe Brogan. He use to give private water color lessons to young artists and now he is selling his works. I was thrilled when he liked my work and was very kind to offer me 2 lessons on water colors; according to him, that's all what I need. He said I actually don't need it but I've never worked with water colors before and loved to learn from him. The week after that, he showed me some of his works and they were amazing. He is off to a holiday soon and we'll be setting a date for the lessons after he comes back. So excited to have my 1st ever art lesson. I always wanted to have one for the company. Wish I new some artist here to chat with as well!!

Practice .. Practice ..

It's been a while since the last time I wrote something. We've been through a lot of ups and downs. But it's all better now. In the last couple of months I've been practicing more and more in sketching which is always a fun thing to do for me. I got a lot better but I'm still aiming for more. Having a lot of encouragements, which I love, keeps me motivated big time! I still wish I can go back to painting and evolve there as well and I still wish I can paint with a group of artist. However, I don't have enough space for that in the mean time. As shown below, you can see the difference between how I sketch now and how used to sketch last year.

Nowadays I'm planning to remodel a kindergarten class using the same method I used couple of years ago which is by using colored papers.. The classroom teacher wants the theme to be about transportation. I'm looking forward to start working in decorating her class.. Hope it turns out as she expects.. Will keep you posted..

Back in Qatar

I'm back once more. Been to Spain but unfortunatly couldn't make it to art muesums that included Dali and Piccaso. I can't find time to sketch nowadays. A lot of things have happened since I came back. Some of which are unfortunate but we are all hoping for the best.
My cusin is suffering from cancer. She is not yet treated till she becomes strong enough for the treatments required. We are all with her, praying for her, talking to her, and truely believe that she will be herself again and much better Inshallah.
Wish you include her in your prayers..
"ربي نستودعكـ غاليه التميمي . فردها الينا بأحسن حال عاجلاً غير اجلاً . اللهــم امين"

Writing a book

Due to the huge amount of free time that I'm having, some people suggested that I should write a book on sketching techniques for beginners since the ones that I'm doing now are really helpful. I've been getting a lot of feedback on this matters and now I'm really excited about it to be honest ^^ I'm glad that I'm doing something useful and not wasting my time here ^^

I'm really into sketching these days. It's really helpful in developing my sense in details which will be a big help later on. I miss painting of course but I don't feel I'll be comfortable painting in my apartment. I got used to the habit of having a space for that & someone over.  (really miss that). Hope I go home soon. I miss my family
