Today was a washout, instead of riding I visited a little gallery in Romsey, Hampshire, called Rums Egg. Artist that exhibit are local- ish to the area, and there is a huge variety of arts, from paintings of different media, felt, jewellery, wood work, glass and more. They also have a great coffee shop, big plus. Runs egg do craft /art classes regularly, after picking up the leaflet I discovered on of my fav artists locally had just done a class, I missed it. Jake Winkle, he has a very loose approach to watercolour, which I adore, I struggle myself at producing work in this style as I can’t help but put in those details, still it’s nice to admire work that is different from our own. My fav artist at the gallery was Peter Gilbert, his watercolour was so full of texture and colours layered, that it really had the wow factor, one of those pieces that definitely looks better in the flesh ( so to speak).
Anyhow I finished my figure that I started last week ( a better attempt from the last figure) I decided not to add much colour this time.
London’s been a windy washout too – Barney? Lovely figure work. I can’t draw like that they end up like straw men.
