Back To Booming

1 Sep

After a totally hectic month building up to installing my new solo exhibition in the most excellent Workers Gallery in Ynyshir, I have my life back …. well until tomorrow when I will be drawing some more Baby Boomers. I’m trying to schedule a Baby Boomer drawing day once a week until I finish the 100 thirty-minute portrait sketches that I’ve set as my target.

Here’s one I did in my last Boomer session, a very strong, decisive countenance. I am drawing into my hardbacked, spiral bound A3 size sketchbook with a graphite stick. When I started the series I was using drawing pens, but I think a graphite stick is better suited to 30 minutes as I have to work quickly and freely and drawing pens force me into too much detail.


Tea with me at The Workers Gallery – a chance to see the exhibition with lashings of tea and home-made cakes in the gorgeous Cynon Valley.


There’s more of my art to be seen in my online Gallery in Artfinder. Please click here to visit. Thank you.

    I am really enjoying these sketches. You are right about the pen ‘asking’ for more details. I’m slways surprised to see how differently I eork in different media.

      Oh yes, it’s really enlightening how new ideas get triggered by trying a new medium or technique. We never stop learning or adapting.
