Normal Service Has Resumed …….

2 Oct

It’s October and it’s back to normal with life drawing, sketching, painting and printmaking. Through September I mostly blogged about my charity fundraiser, but now I’m going to be posting about my everyday arts practice so here goes with some of the life drawings that have been building up over the past month. I was trying something a bit different with the pastel drawing (above). It was the final pose of the session, a full hour, so I decided to do something other than my normal rather academic, representational style. And the one below is the first, a five minute pose.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to my fundraiser for LATCH: The Children’s Cancer Charity. We raised £850 from the paintings and I know there were people who donated directly to LATCH – THANK YOU! And big THANKS to those who shared all over social media and cheered from the side-lines. I would also like to thank Ed Sumner for his wonderful Cheese and Wine Painting Club. And most of all, my young nephew and I would like to say thank you to LATCH for all the great work they do. I’m glad I could use these paintings to help their mission so in future, children will benefit from their much needed service.
