New book drawings and today.....

Above is a new page from my book, I thought it would be right to show the book in a bit of a context rather than just showing the drawing.

Above is the added to bleeding narrative of the top drawing on the reverse page, so I am now over halfway through 'Double Chill'. I am spending Saturday in The Uys Gallery Tregenna Hill and aim to have to book finished and ready for sale sometime that day.

After looking at these two new drawings I am now wondering what I will draw tonight.

Today I have spent time putting a second coat of gloss on our window frames at the Barnoon Workshop. Visited the gallery, spent time with Carl and Kate from BID bought some thermalite blocks and some wood for a shelf. I have also delivered a guitar lesson.

I have also been keeping up with the news on how all the political high-jinks have been going and as far as I can see Boris Johnson has made a fool of himself and so has Angela Eagle. It seems we might be heading into a big change in politics in the country, from my perspective it looks like the old guard are starting to crumble.

Above is a drawing on wood I did a couple of years or so ago.

Above is one of my early bleeding narrative drawings.

Off to draw soon and find out what else has happened in this mad world. Cheers!

More new drawings as normal....

 Above and below are the first two drawings I did last night, a nice subtle bleed through on the reverse below.

Above and below although not picture the same way are another pair of bleeding narratives

Above and below working on the same principal of working on the bleeding narrative no matter how subtle.

Above another on completed last night but I didn't finish the reverse.

Above and below are two line drawings also done last night.

Today has been a day of setting up the workshop a quick lunch in town, a visit to my framer Dean to drop 5 pieces off for his special treatment. I will photo these when I get them back befor I take them to the Gallery.

I am looking forward to being in the UYS Gallery all Saturday so do pop in.

Also today Zoe Eaton, my wife has been running soap making and candle making workshops at Barnoon Workshop I also have a guitar workshop later to deliver and then it is on with more drawing.

See you tomorrow....

New drawings, new book progressing and stuff

Above is one of the four drawings I completed last night in my new creation 'Double Chill' what will become a whole art book.

Above is the bleeding narrative version of the first one.

Above is a line drawing from the new book done after the disappointment  of our latest football result. I hope this is not a spoiler for anyone, sorry about last time Graham.

Above is the second line drawing done last night, the ink didn't bleed through so reacted like this.

Above and below are two shots I took around town today it was a bit damp but still lovely and heart warming. I do feel lucky living here even if it is hard to make a living it does have it's compensations

After taking those I went to pick up some work from The Mariners Gallery which I then took straight to The Uys Gallery so they are back up for sale, shame no pix. Talking of The UYS Gallery I will be in there on Saturday drawing. If you want to pop in feel free, happy to discuss my work with anyone or anything else for that matter. Hope to see you on Saturday.

Food to be eaten and drawings to be done life never stops.
