Two Heads And A Big Challenge

10 Aug


Two more portrait drawings I did on Thursday during the filming by BBC1s ‘The One Show ‘ in St. David’s. The first day of filming started out following local artist, Grahame Hurd-Wood, who has set himself the challenge of painting the portraits of all 1800 residents of the tiny city. He has already done 112 and aims to complete one a day over the next 5 years or so. On day 2 of the filming, I joined 10 other Welsh figurative artists to draw or paint as many people as we could.


Locals and holidaymakers queued around the block as we artists worked inside the Goat Street Gallery and out into the garden which has a glorious view over the magnificent cathedral. I worked quite small, using Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens straight into an A5 sketchbook. I spent about half an hour on each of these very interesting people. One of the good things about the day was meeting new people and getting to talk to them. It was very intense but fun too.

      I don’t know, John. They’re going to let me know when it’s going out but I might end up on the cutting room floor 🙂
