Face Across A Room 3.

A Pensive Moment.

Another interesting face scribbled across a bar on Friday night, with a ballpoint pen into my A5 sketchbook. I love doing this, capturing these little still moments in people’s lives. Does that make me a voyeur?

Face Across A Room 2

Deep in thought.

Out on Friday night, saw an interesting face across the bar, had to have a scribble didn’t I? With a ballpoint pen into my leather-bound A5 sketchbook.

The Cat Loves A Dali ….

Sparta Puss “helping” to paint.

I began to copy Salvador Dali’s “Christ Of Saint John Of The Cross” back in the Autumn, in a Zoom tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner. I started painting along with Ed early in lockdown in Spring 2020 and made it my pandemic goal to improve my painting skills. I’ve learned loads by copying great artists. Sparta Puss seemed to enjoy it too.

Here’s the finished painting below and photos I took of the different stages as I worked on it. And a time lapse film featuring ….. Sparta Puss!

FINISHED!

Face Across A Room 1.

Sketching In The Bar.

I went to a quiz night at the Jam Jar bar the other evening. It was the first time I’ve done a digital quiz – it was hilarious. Of course, I had to have a scribble. I saw a very striking looking young woman across the bar, in a rival team , and sketched her with a ballpoint pen into my A5 sketchbook.

Plants Are For Eating….

Different Drawing Styles.

I spent a day at Swansea’s Botanical Gardens in Singleton Park last week, part of a three day drawing and screenprint course held by Edinburgh-based artist Kelly Stewart. It was interesting to draw there, but I’ve got to be honest, plants just don’t float my boat unless they’re on a plate ready to eat 😀 Still, it’s good to get out of my comfort zone and I tried out some different drawing styles and materials.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

Scribbling In The Cheese.

In The Back Bar.

I had a couple of days in London last week with work, and I went with some of my colleagues on an evening walking tour of the historic pubs of old London. It was brilliant, good fun and so full of history and interest. The guide was brilliant and showed us lots of the tiny little nooks and crannies that I’ve never seen in many, many years of going back and forth to the city. One of the pubs is Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese – there’s been a pub on the site for nearly half a millennium. By then I was pretty tired so I sat in one of the quiet back bars and did a bit of scribbling.

A Long Weekend

The first layer of the screenprint.

It’s been a busy week and it didn’t let up at the weekend. I did a three-day drawing and screenprint course run by Edinburgh-based artist Kelly Stewart at Swansea Print Workshop, making multi-layer photo-stencil prints. It was great but I’m shattered. So off to chill now 😀

The Sugar Loaf, Wales.

A Quick Scribble.

I visited the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre near Libanus earlier this week and I joined a group on a guided walk and took off into the hills. Looking North East, I saw The Sugar Loaf, near Abergavenny, and had a scribble with my new Derwent Inktense blocks. I had a watercolour brush with a reservoir attached so after I did a very quick sketch, I worked into it with the water brush to create a ‘wash’ effect.

Scribbling In The Mountains.

Another view of Pen Y Fan.

Here’s another sketch I did yesterday when I was visiting the Brecon Beacons. I walked a little way from the Visitor’s Centre to an ancient standing stone and noticed dark clouds looming above Pen Y Fan in the distance. So I sat on the grass and scribbled the view with Derwent Inktense blocks onto heavyweight Khadi paper.

Up The Beacons.

Pen Y Fan in the distance.

I was up the Brecon Beacons today, at the National Park Visitor Centre near Libanus, and it was gloriously sunny. So I had to have a scribble, didn’t I? Pen Y Fan mountain was in the distance so I did a quick sketch using my new Derwent Inktense blocks onto heavyweight Khadi paper. I really like them, easy to use and they turn into sumptuous colours when I add water ( I used a portable watercolour brush, with a reservoir).
