Prints, Paperclips in Pants and Paul Peter Piech

6 Aug

Drawing Diva Steve

 

The past couple of days I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather, like I’m fighting off a bug but today was my volunteer day at Swansea Print Workshop so I dosed up on paracetamol and spent the afternoon printing monotypes. I managed to do eight, basing them on drawings from my sketchbooks, so I was well pleased.

 

We went out this evening to the opening of the new exhibition at Oriel Ceri Richards in Taliesin, featuring six artists from Swansea Print Workshop alongside a retrospective of prints by the radical 20th century printmaker, Paul Peter Piech. We bought one of his linocuts, very reasonably priced, and caught up with lots of friends. It’s a fabulous exhibition and worth a look if you’re in Swansea.

 

Coming back from the exhibition, Melvyn was feeling quite uncomfortable and when we got home he found a handful of paperclips down his underpants! Don’t ask!

 

The ink drawing from one of my sketchbooks is of Steve, who runs our Thursday Night Drawing Group at Swansea Print Workshop.
