Day 1: In The Curry House

1 Feb

01 28 days

I’m taking part in a Facebook daily drawing challenge for February and there are artists from across the planet posting work up. I try and do a daily drawing anyway but entering something like this will keep me motivated. Here’s a couple in the local curry house. It has some wild upholstery.

Nudity, Misery, Curry…..

31 natieI had a good session at life drawing group last night and tried out different media and papers throughout the evening. Here’s one I did in willow charcoal, compressed charcoal and chalk onto a lightweight textured paper; I don’t know the make as it was given to me and doesn’t have a watermark, but it’s obviously mould-pressed. The drawing is about size A3 and using charcoal really pushed me. I normally work with charcoal on a much larger scale, this was tight! The final result is a bit German Expressionist, which is fine by me, although I didn’t have that in mind while I was drawing. I guess that shows how much a piece of artwork can be influenced by materials. Our model is great, she holds a pose for ever….almost.

Today I’ve been a proper misery – horrible weather and loads of non-creative stuff to do which is sapping my will to live. So Husb’s going to take me for a curry at The Vojon to cheer me up.Lovely model. Lovely Husb. And lovely curry house.:D

hmmm….lamb shashlik or handi lamb polongwala?

 

Got It! Flaunt It!

29 ginger

Husb and I went for a curry at The Vojon earlier to celebrate that I finished the 20 drawings and prints for my next exhibition. Any excuse for a curry. I had a garlic lamb frezi with sag rice and Husb enjoyed a chicken aloo johl and garlic rice, with poppadoms and a chutney tray. I took my sketchbook and drew this bloke opposite. He is one of the gingerest people I have ever seen. Not only proper carrot-ginger but also curly. And proud. Because he had teased his ginger curls into a marvellous confection of a hairdo. Flaunting it. Nice. Drawn with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens, size F and B in sepia. And then, Marvel’s Agents of Shield. Marvellous. What a great evening 😀
