Cafe Drawing

Image
I have a small exhibition of previous work on display at Mr & Mrs C's Cafe as part of the May Wakefield Art Walk. On the night, I caught up with a few people I've not see in awhile and managed to get a spot of cafe drawing in to boot.









Sunday Drawing in the Park (Again)

Image
This mornings drawing started out as an attempt at an open line drawing, letting the water colour do all the work.


I got so far and wasn't happy with the results so decided to go back in and add some mark making with the Parallel Pen. It make things on the page look solid and I like the marks it makes, I feel it brings my drawing alive.



And this is what I used as my 'easel'...


Park Drawing

I had a go at colouring the drawing in Photoshop, trying to capture those bright flashes through branches that happen occasionally on sunny days in England.


Long Division Five Album Cover

Image
I'll be Drawing the Crowds* at this years Long Division music festival 2nd May. As a warm up to the festival hte organisers have released an an album featuring some of the musical talent involved. You can download a copy, available as 'Pay What You Want' in aid of Wakefield Samaritans over on Bandcamp.

The only other cover I've done was for Nik Kershaw for his No Frills album.

*Literally, drawing the crowds of people attending the festival trying to capture the mood and atmosphere of the weekend with my drawings.
