I do like drawing people. Most of these people I know very well. The nude was a model from a few years ago.
My youngest son has the pleasure of my company as I take him to various lessons. He’s now at home, next to me doing his homework now… Mostly I’m designing on the laptop while he’s learning but sometimes I’ll start … Continue reading
Other 15 minute painted sketches and details.
This all started when given some homework from my Friday night class of life drawing at the Mary Ward Centre. The work has been rather colourful of late, could you do some works in mono? Here they are. This was … Continue reading
Portraits. Paintings and collage with glitter, gold leaf and pencils. Continue reading
A double portrait in oils. For a friend’s anniversary. The source material was a dark photograph taken from a concert. Made to go with a similar painting I’d created 10 years before as a wedding present. It was handed over to … Continue reading
This was a long weekend in the amazing Foel Ortho. See http://www.farmhouseinwales.com for more info. The images have an intense atmosphere to them which wasn’t present at the the time. I did drink a fair bit of Whisky so it … Continue reading
Made for the Tufnell Park Parents magazine. Kept as simple as possible. Lots of faces and an email. A full page version. A half page version.
This painting has been hanging in a my father-in-law’s house for many years now; I realised the other day that there wasn’t a good photographic record of it, which this post solves. The mix of dark and light makes it … Continue reading
Drawings in pencils in a sketchbook in a small amount of time in Derbyshire in half term mostly in the kitchen. Continue reading
When people buy a work, it’s interesting what becomes of the piece. A few have ended up in the toilet, adorning a wall, being looked at a few times a day. One artwork I’m renovating at the moment needed spray … Continue reading
Here’s another commission. Two daughters and a doll (the doll was important). I thought I’d show it as details first. Here’s the inspirations for the work. Gainsborough’s daughters, Joan Eardley’s Glasgow street children, Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s the two sisters and the … Continue reading
Two canvases were doing nothing in the art room for a few years, so why not bring them to the life drawing class and put some paint on them? This was the last pose. 1 hour. The colours get more … Continue reading
These are from sketchbooks and a work notepad that accompanied me on my trips camping and to Ireland. A rainy day drawing. Reading in bed. While people were chatting… A torso. And the head to go with it. Pevensy beach. … Continue reading
My lovely neighbours. On Sunday the 5th we had a street party. Bands, huge amounts of food, some history and lots of fun. I was on the Art stall with my easel and some pastels. A great time was had by … Continue reading
A fun illustration job. The lack of noses is intentional. Trying to get the personality of the subjects from a low res image was fun. I hope the people in the frames like it.
All these works are in a state of flux. Will they ever be truely finished? Not sure. A self portrait from real life. I like the idea of a constantly aging self portrait. Sort of not Dorian Grey / self … Continue reading
A friend has commissioned me for a portrait and I’m happy to oblige. She came round and I made some preparatory sketches. Here’s the same image in black and white. You can see how fast I’m working in the marks. … Continue reading
http://creatrix.me/musings/inner-space/the-creative-paththe-human-face-as-the-subject/ As you know I’m quite shy. Which is why I haven’t posted a link to this before. This is an interview about portraiture conducted by the enthusiastic, erudite and charming Denise Prentice. Follow her on twitter or see her … Continue reading
