This week I reflect on some endings and beginnings. Like so many others I was saddened to hear about the passing of Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, and so I couldn’t not mention that sad news. Her legacy will last for many, many years to come. On the beginnings side, my life drawing classes started again this week and I share how they have inspired some landscape work. So in the video I share how a couple of pieces are beginning.
Earlier this week I share a mixed media piece called Bass Rock on Instagram. It got a lot of love! So this week I thought I’d share a bit about how the work came together and how sometimes the end point of a piece of work is not what you expected when you start it.
After a couple of weeks “off camera” I’m back with my weekly updates. This week I share some of what I’ve been up to over the past couple of weeks, including the thinking and planning side of being an artist. Would love to hear your thoughts on what I’ve been sharing too, so we can extend the conversation.
This week, I reflect on the one year anniversary of the UK going in to lockdown, but on a more positive note share news about the fabulous new look SSA website and my contribution to their fantastic 4 x 4 x 4 project. So 2 videos for the price of one this week!
This week I’m enjoying some spring sunshine and sharing some thoughts on working with people who commission me to paint for them. Keep watching to the end of the video to see how the commission developed.
This week I’ve done something a bit different to share some of my recent work.
This week I share a bit of what sometimes happens when work isn’t quite going to plan. Sometimes just letting go and allowing your subconscious to take control can provide some unexpected pleasures. I also share some news about my involvement in the SSA 4 x 4 x 4 event.
In this, my last update for 2020, I share a few good wishes for Christmas and the year ahead
