The Exhibition happened!

31st October, the exhibition opened and it was a great success! The turn out was fantastic, 16 works were displayed and 7 works have sold since. The exhibition is on until 29th November.

Some pictures of the opening night are below and then I will unveil the drawings in the next post….

Toys… in their sketched pre-watercoloured phase…

The toys I drew – and in this post you can see them in their pre-sketched phase. They have since been watercoloured and painted but we will wait until after the exhibition has started, as so not to spoil the surprise for many who will be attending my exhibition ;). These  toys as you can tell, are from an era gone by, vintage toys but still pre-loved

Whats happening in my world….

Well after many months of hard work, I  have just about nearly finished the body of works. My aim was to do at least 15 works, and I have just about achieved that! 1 more to go and it will be 15 but I have also decided I would like to do 2 or 3 more drawings but in colour pencil by the beautiful Faber Castell series.

So far for the exhibition, I have done the artist statement, designed and printed the brochure, and now about to start the catalogue and frame the last of the artworks with matt framing. Ah if I had the funds I would get them framed with solid frames!

A sneak preview of what is happening in my art studio… you can see from the mess, how hard at work I have been… and enjoying it! :)

Latest drawing for the Vintage exhibition….

This is only the preliminary sketch of the 40′s room I want to draw and paint in ink and wash (in monocolour). I’m hoping for a greyscale type of monocolour……

NB: It is not completely finished yet but wanted to post here to give a clue on the next piece

It’s Friday!

I am so glad it’s Friday again! More so wanting this weekend to come fast as I have big plans for my art projects and a great deal lot of work I want to do. I have just cleared my art table up to make room for the new works I want to start….. I’m hoping (in my naivety ha ha) that I will be able to start two at the same time, that big one of a phone in the hallway against a wallpaper and the monochrome kitchen painting.

The one thing I desire is to get away for one weekend to the country, phone off and no computer and totally get absorbed into my art and take in the nature around me…. hoping to plan for this in a few weeks time and when I do, I will be posting here photos of how it goes!

Further news: One of my drawings sold tonight! :) The Attic Peephole (image below) has found a new happy home. Congratulations to the buyer of this piece :)
