Another term at artclass and we have been looking at art inspired by circus, had some great fun working with vintage photographs and some rapid scribbling, trying to create the energy of circus clowns.
Up to now I have never made time to sketch while on holiday , this year I set out to change that making a little time to stop and sketch.
After you get over the strangeness of getting your sketchbook out in public, making time to sketch and not to just grab photographs, makes you more aware of the place even if it’s not always captured in the sketches.
Got to get into the habit of doing this more as it’s more personal record of the places you visit, I am sure they will help me remember if I want to make paintings later.
As part of our art class theme adornment we have been working with a set of pictures by Deen Dayal of Maharajahs, I was keen to put my pencil down and have a go with a Biro, also to work at a smaller scale, nothing like challenging yourself.
