Holiday sketches.

These are from sketchbooks and a work notepad that accompanied me on my trips camping and to Ireland.

While people were chatting…

And the head to go with it.

Pevensy beach. Quite a normal image for me.

Some portraits.


There were more of these, drawn on pizza box insides (a good medium for campfire felt tip pen portraits) but these weren’t photographed and were given away to the sitters.

This is a page of my daughter’s comic creations.

And this is one of my son’s view of Pevensy beach.

These are from the Irish holiday. The result of the scribble game. Make a scribble, give it to someone else and they have to make an image out of it.

Self Portrait 3 Sessions in Watercolour. Late Night Mirror.

Painted for the Sunday Times watercolour competition.
It didn’t get through but that’s OK as I have a nice painting to show for it.
Paint set £3.99. Paper given to me in 1985.
I started painting a tree from Avebury. Why paint a photograph of a tree? So the mirror came out, as everybody else was in bed. Listened to Kafka’s Castle on the radio, and painted what I could see. Not the most comfortable pose after an hour.

Life Drawing 17.07.15. Yuka with the nose-ring.

I have a forthcoming exhibition at the Mary Ward centre 21st September to Saturday 17th October. The title of the show is Information/Expression.

The final artwork in this series of life paintings. What a fantastic 12 week course it has been. This post was around 1 hour. The perspective is quite strong as the material was really near me. The orange chair might be a little small, but that’s how it seemed to me at the time.

I wanted to capture the changing light and heightened the colours, making the eye fill in the gaps between the tones and shades.

The model was suffering form the heat so we had a 25 minute reclining pose, which reminded me of the figures made from dust in Pompeii.

This project has been most enjoyable.
Alan D Boyd is a good guy, who also has a lot of good content, perfect for a website.
The main idea was to have two colour coded routes for the two main parts of his business.
The large amount of good photography was made into chapter images  showing Alan composing, directing, recording etc. Testimonials re-inforce how good he is.

Life Drawing 03.07.15: Matthew and Skellington.

Matthew is a bodybuilder. This evening’s lesson worked well. Two alternating poses in periods of 15 minutes throughout the lesson. a chance to make a very large painting with a strong composition. The focal point is the reflection in the mirror, with Mr Skellington in front.

This image will be worked on later; the colours need working out and the imagery needs tightening up.
