Drawings

I bought some new pencils and watercolours this week. Felt like Christmas coming early! The school break has allowed me to do plenty of drawing rather than teach it, so here are some of the fruits of my labour…

Summer Show and Vogue Magazine

I haven’t posted for a while due to schoolwork. Can’t wait for the summer break so I can do some of my own artwork. I’ve started a series of ‘sentinels’, mainly images of figures wading through water. It’s a theme that I’m keen to develop for a little while, so expect to see more pictures of boats and tides and other water-related things. These images are on their way to Swansea’s Attic Gallery for their Summer Show (opens 12th July).

I’ve also been approached by Vogue UK Magazine to be part of a feature in its August edition. The idea of my name being associated with a world-famous fashion mag is hilarious! Having said that, it’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it stuff, but hey – it’s Vogue Magazine!ImagePaddle, acrylic on paper, 12 x 12 cmImageSiren, acrylic on paper, 12 x 12cmImageTwilights, acrylic on paper, 12 x 12cm

This new space is currently having its finishing touches applied and will be opening officially on Sunday 11th November at 12 o’clock. You’re all invited, so come along and take a look at some of my new work. For more details, go to http://www.fountainfineart.com nearer the event.
