Great life drawing session at Poole and East Dorset Art Society last night. Thanks to Trish the tutor and Tom the model for a challenging session.
Day 4 of inktober and the theme today is freezing, I thought the girl should have some clothes on so she doesn’t get too cold, how warm is a bikini?
We went to the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh yesterday. Part of it is closed for refurbishment so they have displayed a selection of the most popular paintings with works by Gainsborough, Landseer, Goya, Degas, Raphael, Seurat Rembrandt and a few other big names. I moved the Monarch of the Glen so I could include it in this painting.
It was too late to paint outside when we arrived in Carlisle last night so I used a photo I took. A couple of weeks ago in Bournemouth during the Air show. There were lots of people sitting outside their beach huts enjoying the sunshine and watching the show.
I will be driving most of today So here is a post from Our visit to the golf club on Tuesday. I didn’t have long to draw this as they were pretty good golfers and hit the balls down the holes very quickly!
This watercolour of the beach ended up as a panoramic view because I messed up the foreground. I was too impatient to let the wash dry before I added a dark indigo for the buggy and it spread everywhere. The only way to salvage it was to cut the bottom off!
Cliff and I visited David Dyke luthier supplies in East Sussex today to buy some wood, Cliff is making me a new guitar and David specialises in tone woods for all kinds of instruments. His shop is amazing and reminded me of Olivander the wand maker in the Harry Potter films. Unfortunately I didn’t think to take a picture so I had to draw it from memory which is why David has his back to us!
