It's only the under drawing that's why there is no detail.
  

Title 2


Evening all, just executed my first portrait in 10 years, executed is the right word. I always always ran away from life drawing but for some reason I like this one. It's been a hell on earth week and I feel totally chi axed spending 30 mins  drawing. Hopefully tomorrow we will have heat,  water and gas, oh to have hot food, hot water and be warm. Let me know what you think, I am going to thrash this out with paint now. That's why I took the pic lol

Title 2


Hi all sorry it's been a while but really busy. Today I went to The Stamp Pad and did an AMAZING GOTHIC CLOCK with the very talented and super nice guy Andy SKinner. I learnt so much and can't wait to pass all this on to my students, really was amazing. This clock was made using a special TAndo kit and paint effects and card and paper, it really was brilliant to be able to use pard and card and paint and create work that looked like it had rusted and decayed for years. THe STamp PAd is A MUST VISIT SHOP and Gwen isn't bad lol( she is so very funny and really lovely, so so welcoming, such a lovely woman) I can't recommend it enough. It was brill and I met some lovely ( very talented ) people and I can't wit to go back.

NoteBook 1 : Title 1




Here's some of my students drawing with their mouths.whats the reason, well there's a few, it's to make them less precious and be aware of how people persevere. One student Sonali said, " makes you glad to have hands" all of them were really pleased with their results, I was too. They came out appreciating what they can achieve rather than being negative about what they can't achieve. I am really lucky.

Title 1

This is for a challenge over at VIntage ELusions, men and machines, I have used stamp addicts leonardo stamps ( fantastic assortment of different a6 collage stamps). Hopefully it represents a page from his journal or notebook. He wrote backwards to lessen the chance of people copying. But although he was an amazing man, many of his " inventions" we're in fact developments from contemporaries or predecessors. Please leave a comment, I know it's a bit raw but I limit myself now otherwise I  Suzee ( Phaf) lol
