01 bath window

I was invigilalting a group show that my work is in at Fringe Arts Bath, a FAB group of exhibitions scattered across 6 venues in the city. It’s the biggest event my work has been in – so far. But babysitting a show can get pretty boring, especially on a quiet day, so I turned to my trusty sketchbook. I was on the ground floor at FAB3 looking out through large Victorian windows across the small street at the back of the Roman baths and I used the windows to frame sketches of passers-by. I only had a very few seconds to get some lines on the paper and then I had to use my memory for the rest. Very demanding but good practice. I feel strongly that we artists should practice our craft, like singers practice their scales every day.

FAB is on for another week, until June the 9th and the show my work is in, with the Twelve:34 group from Swansea, is on the top floor of FAB3 at 3 York Street, immediately behind the Roman baths. If you’re passing, please pop in 🙂
