#MadeForSale exhibition

Last month I was hard at work with a large ballpoint pen drawing of JP Joule for the #MadeForSale exhibition.

I wanted to create different textures with the ballpoint pen to show the smoothness of the statue and then more texture with the feathers on Colin (corvid)

The exhibition is on until 5th August at the Waterside Arts Centre.

Here is a work in progress shot and the finished piece.

Life drawing class

First time at Sale Arts Trail  life-drawing class and can’t wait to go back. The class is full of enthusiastic like-minded people which makes for a great atmosphere. A variety of poses, from 5 mins to a full hour long pose, gives you plenty of inspiration. Definitely worth a visit and a BIG thank you to the organizers Jo Lavelle & Sophie NixonClark

This is the last days’ artwork from the 14 day drawing challenge and the theme was movement. We were allowed to choose from a selection of images and this one really captured my eye. The first couple of sketches were done in 60 seconds and 5 mins and the full piece took 1 hour to complete.  This was one of my favourite drawings of the challenge.
