Visiting Joe Bach

19 Jun

We have a friend visiting so we were out and about most of the day, taking in some galleries and museums. I think the best was the show of Josef Herman drawings and paintings at Swansea Museum. He was known affectionately as Joe Bach during his years in Wales and he spent much of his art career recording the ordinary people around him and I guess that’s what I do with my sketchbooks most of the time. We went to a local curry house later where I quickly scribbled these two sketches.

 

I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.

    I love recording the ordinary people and events. That’s what is so hard to find when you look back in history and what often speaks most strongly to me.

      That’s so true. I love Herman’s work because he does just that. Marvellous.
