Normal Service Has Resumed …….

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 wasContinue reading “Normal Service Has Resumed …….”

Thank you for contributing

My September painting fundraiser for LATCH, The Children’s Cancer Charity, is now officially over. Thank you to all those who bought paintings and donated. Also to those who shared and cheered from the side-lines. We raised £850 from the paintings and I know there were also people who donated directly to LATCH. It’s been a fantastic month.Continue reading “Thank you for contributing”

Tomorrow Is The Last Day …..

Tomorrow is the last day of my fundraiser for LATCH: The Children’s Cancer Charity. September is Child Cancer Awareness Month and I chose to raise funds for LATCH because it is a wonderful, small, independent charity that has helped my young nephew throughout three and a half years of painful chemotherapy and surgery. These paintingsContinue reading “Tomorrow Is The Last Day …..”

Waiting At The Station

Here’s a little scribble I did in my sketchbook the other week when I was waiting for the train back from Glasgow. What a brilliant city, I loved it. I like doing these tiny drawings of everyday life into my sketchbook, just little slices of normality which mean more to me than ever before afterContinue reading “Waiting At The Station”

The Red Tree At High Speed And A Cat

I painted this “fake” of Piet Mondrian’s “Evening: The Red Tree” recently and Husb made a time-lapse film of it – all done in under a minute – I wish!! Sparta Puss hung out with me while I painted. Here’s the video below. This is the last few days of my September fundraiser for LATCH:Continue reading “The Red Tree At High Speed And A Cat”

Pandemic, Paintings And Podcast

It’s the last few days to see my exhibition of “Pandemic Paintings” on Swansea Print Workshop’s digital gallery. It’s our September show and I’m chuffed to be showing the “fakes” I’ve done with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Here are a few of them but there are plenty more in theContinue reading “Pandemic, Paintings And Podcast”

Painting From A Drawing

I’m starting to paint my own work now, after 18 months of copying great artists with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. I did a pastel drawing when I was visiting the Lake District last week and I’m developing it into a painting. Here’s a section of it, using Liquitex Heavy BodyContinue reading “Painting From A Drawing”

Scoffing And Sketching

Husb and I went to Glasgow last week, for the first time. What a fabulous city. I loved it. We did the touristy bit, visiting the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (fabulous), the Necropolis (fabulous) and lunching at the famous Willows Tearooms (fabulous). We only had two days there but just enough to convince usContinue reading “Scoffing And Sketching”

PODCAST: 10 PAINTINGS AND A CUPPA TEA

PODCAST SEPTEMBER 2021 Hiya, Rosie Scribblah here. http://www.scribblah.co.uk Welcome to my latest podcast. It’s called 10 Paintings – I don’t do long podcasts. Just enough time for a cuppa tea and a biscuit. Or a Welsh cake. This is about 10 paintings I have copied through lockdown. I’ve been following the Cheese and Wine PaintingContinue reading “PODCAST: 10 PAINTINGS AND A CUPPA TEA”

Scribbling On The Common

Husb and I had a few days away last week, cautiously enjoying the relaxation in lockdown rules. We spent some time in the Lake District and I did a bit of scribbling out walking on the glorious Birkrigg Common. I used Daler Rowney Artist’s Pastels onto hand made Khadi paper. I’m facing North West inContinue reading “Scribbling On The Common”
