Faking The Blue Robe

17 Nov

I did a session with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club last week, the first in a while. We’re faking The Blue Robe by Henri Matisse and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve always loved his work, I love the free way he puts the paint onto the canvas. It’s good for me because I’m a pretty uptight artist, I get bogged down in process and detail and it’s good to let go. I’ve got maybe another hour to spend on it.

My lovely nephew (in the middle) along with these other wonderful young people have benefitted from the Children In Need charity 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“, every evening until 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
