Pies And Leftovers

15 Jul

So we’ve taken down our exhibition in Bath and arrived home, very tired but not much time to rest because next thing is hanging the ‘Leftovers II’ miniature print exhibition that’s come over from the USA, from Wingtip Press in Boise, Idaho. The show opens Tuesday evening at Swansea Print Workshop (7pm if you’re in the area and you’re very welcome) so we’ll be frantically hanging it over the next two days.

We had a lot of kindness shown to us in Bath; we received sponsorship from the local wine merchants and the furniture hire firm and because the gallery, an old mortuary chapel, doesn’t have a toilet, the staff at the ‘Made By Ben‘ pie cafe down the road let us use their facilities. Most welcome. And their home made pies are gorgeous too. Husb and I had a few hours doing the tourist bit on Friday and stopped off at the pie cafe for a spot of brunch. I did this drawing from the window at the back of the snug little tearoom into my A6 recycled, leather-bound sketchbook.

    Hello, I’ve been browsing art blogs and really enjoy the sketches you post- especially that you draw backgrounds and architecture. Not many of my peers focus on context in their observational drawings. Thanks for posting!

      Thank you Kevin. I love to draw from life and that includes the surroundings, because that’s what gives a drawing meaning, IMHO. 🙂
