We redecorated the smallest room recently and I have been trying to find exactly the right art piece for it. I commissioned myself to produce a new piece of art for the loo. After much playing and a lot of fun, I have designed a tryptic, based on the expressive life drawing classes I’m taking with @chriswoodartist at the moment.
At the classes I go large – A1 – but these are tiny, about 5″ square, so I can mount them in a particular frame. They look great!
Watercolour, oil pastels, wax crayon and acrylic inks. (Click for a larger version).
It was gorgeous sunshine yesterday in Portsmouth and I enjoyed a short walk around Victoria Park in my lunch break. Spring is springing!
To be with one another forever and to have no doubt
(Nor feel exhaustion at the prospect)
Is the goal of those who, like us,
Speak in whispers through the night,
Whose one fear is of how Eternity just might
Be too short a time,
And for whom the briefest separation is a crime.
Brian Patten (from Collected Love Poems) – a superb collection.
Lovely sunny walk around Gilkicker yesterday.
Week 2, expressive life- drawing class. Pastels. Really getting into finding my own style and having lots of fun 🙂 Click for full image.
