I carried on painting my copy of Salvador Dali’s “Christ of Saint John on the Cross” that I started a couple of weeks ago in a Zoom tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner, who runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. I started studying with Ed at the beginning of lockdown last year. I didn’t think that the pandemic would last so long, but it’s meant that I’ve learned such a lot about painting techniques and also art history, by studying from the great artists over the past 18 months. There’s a bit more faffing to do on the this bit, then back to the figure on the cross, to do the final details.
My lovely nephew (in the middle) along with these other wonderful young people have benefited from the Children In Need charity in recent years and now they’re giving something back. They’re the Surprise Squad (more about them here) and you can follow their adventures on BBC1s “The One Show“, 15th – 18th November. I know that times are hard, but if you can spare a quid or two, please consider donating to Children In Need (here). They really do make a difference to young lives. Thank you xxx
