Raw Rich, Penzance, St Ives and friends.

Friday:


Above is my latest drawing, still a work in progress but I think it shows where it is going now and I will attempt to finish it in tonights drawing session. I like to keep my work rate up and the flow of ideas, even if I lose some along the way.

Below are Berol pens I am using to add the colour.



Last evening we also had pals around for dinner and banter and our friends Lauren and Graham made it out for the first time with 10 week old Stormy and here she is being serenaded by mum and Dad. The guitar being played was made by Graham who is now a fully fledged maker and Lauren is an artist in town with a studio at The Sloop Craft Market.

This morning we did a little bit of running around, up to the workshop and stuff and this afternoon, so we set off with our guest to Penzance for a couple of reasons one to pick up some art surplies and two to go to a private view at The PZ Gallery.


Above and below showing what a lovely day it had turned out to be after early heavy rain and the sun still had some warmth to give.



After we had got around Penzance we ended up down by the prom and The Jubilee Pool and popped into to restaurant there for a very quick bite before we went to The Raw Rich private view. Our friend and regular attendee to our Monday drawing group Graham Dilley. For the past year Graham has been on the 'Monitoring Program' run by The Newlyn School of Art and this is the culmination of all that hard work. Eleven artists in all took part and filled this large gallery with their works done over the last year.

Above are some of Graham's works, the hang of his images was very professional and contemporary too and it was good to see him still working answering people questions. I am now interested in where he goes next with his work.


Above and below are a couple of shots to give you and idea of this vibrant opening. Overall it is a very good show and I really didn't dislike anything although I was more drawn to some artist more than other. Well done to everybody involved.
