Another Quickie

8 Aug

quickie 1

I’m so lucky to live near the sea and Husb and I are often strolling along the beach, or we’ll go for a short drive to walk along cliffs or along an estuary path. I’ve started to carry my Winsor & Newton half pan watercolours and a Waterford glued block of watercolour paper to capture some quick fleeting impressions. It’s nice to play with the materials and not get bogged down in fine detail, always a dilemma I think with watercolour.

 

 

I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you’d like to see them, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

PsychedeliCat

Psychedelicat 1

I did a small drawing in pencil of this cat back in December, onto my Saunders Waterford watercolour paper block, and have only just now got round to painting it. I can’t move onto the next sheet of paper because it’s one of those glued blocks so I have to finish everything on it before peeling it off and starting the next one.

I don’t want to do a realistic painting. I was a child back in the 1960s and loved the psychedelic art around at that time. I have a few of these cat drawings to paint so I’m going to make them all psychedelicats. I’m using Winsor & Newton half pans.

Booming History

30 Sep

evans-t

I spend some time having conversations with the Baby Boomers who sit for me and these are as important to the development of this work as the sketches. With such a wide age group, spanning 18 years, there’s a huge range of experience and history amongst us all. It’s fascinating to listen to those Boomers older than me, the ones who were old enough to take part in the political movements of the 1960s, see the counterculture evolving on the American West Coast, live in Swinging London. These are things I watched on television as a child and it’s a privilege to talk to people who were there.

 

There’s more of my art to be seen in my online Gallery in Artfinder, please click on the image below to take a look. Thank you.
