So its the end of winter , waiting for spring in our new home and garden that has an apple tree down the bottom , which has probably been there as long as the house, on a day when the weather looked chanagable I went out with some big sheets of paper and had a go at drawing the Apple tree, trying to draw loosely , but building up the texture and areas of detail , did a couple of drawings this way happy with them but not sure any of them are perfect.
I will just have to keep drawing trees !
It would be great to hear what you think of them !
Thanks for looking
Hey there , I have been working recently on a reduction linocut of some sparrows, house sparrows we call them here or little brown jobs.
Even though they are not the most colourful birds here in Britain, they have a lot of character. And when you look up close they have beautiful colours and pattens in their feathers , all be it in shades of brown and greys.
So after watching the sparrow army in my lovely new garden I wanted to do something on them and so here is my linoprint and some drawings, would love to hear what you think , cheers !
(Phew! What a mouthful!)
apart from the really hard to remember title of this exhibition it was really good a lot of really interesting and well observed reportage style drawings crammed onto a few walls of space at the Campus of my university. Saw it last week, so early February .
not sure if there is anything else on the web about this show, but worth a Google about the artist Topolski if you have never heard of him before. (like I hadn’t)
