Getting close to the last page of my sketchbook of faces.
This little selection are ink, tech pens and biro.
It’s been a great project hoping to fill my book before the end of the year (committed now)
Thanks for visiting.
A bit of a regular thing for me, taking a day out to go to London and see the BP portrait Awards and the Summer Exhibition at the RA. I will post some stuff from that a bit later.
Lots of super hyper realistic paintings in this years Exhibition, you have to admire the technical ability of the artists, but for me you can’t beat a few obvious brush strokes in a portrait.
You cant go agreeing with the judges and this years winner did not get my vote. But what do I know.
my vote went to…
and my other likes
Great exhibition I always come away with great admiration for the artist and some inspiration to keep having a go at this art stuff.
Had a go with clay at my art class, the idea was to make a tile to hang in the garden, we made the tiles and then glazed them.
I was not happy with the glazing so I ended up painting it with acrylics.
Thought I would create a design based on my tile, not coloured it yet but I have made copies to share round the class, looking forward to see what others make of it.
Had a day away from work and went up the smoke to Tate Briton and the Edward Burne-Jones exhibition.
It is a very big exhibition set in 6 galleries covering his early art, drawings and his popular Pre-Raphaelite pictures, plus stain glass windows, tapestries and other decorated items, so lots to see.
