I’ve been scribbling in sketchbooks for decades but I hardly ever develop any artwork from these little drawings. I don’t know why, it’s a huge resource but until recently I forgot about the sketches almost as soon as I’d done them. So recently I decided to make a real effort to go back to my sketchbooks for ideas. I’ve done a few screenprints recently, based on some quick landscape scribbles, and I thought I’d have a go at a new painting, using a small sketch of a young relative I made a few months ago. I’m using a recycled stretched canvas with a “hard edge” experiment that I didn’t like, and Liquitex heavy body acrylic paint, a palette knife and Winsor and Newton brushes.
My family is raising money for Phil, a younger relative of mine, to have life-changing surgery in Spain. Phil is disabled by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and the operation he needs isn’t currently available in the UK. I know times are hard, but if you’re able to spare a bob or two, please click here find out more or to donate a small amount to Phil’s crowdfunding campaign. Thank you xxx
Trying Out A Change
I’m having a go at new templates for my website so I’ll be changing them a few times over the next couple of weeks to see how I get on with them. If there’s one you really like, or dislike, please let me know . Thanks x
