Portrait Artist

Here's a portrait just completed of Rosie's best friend Alice, and her little sister Millie.
All the time I'm working small and close, Jon Hall's words are echoing through my mind, "Work big, paint from the shoulder, forget the finer details!"

I will Jon, I promise. Lots of close work to complete first tho. ;)

Daleks ahoy!

Aah, twas a lovely weekend down in Somerset, at the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum, and the Dalek Day II event.

Finally met Alistair Pearson, an artist whose work inspired me to start painting Doctor Who portraits, long ago!

Caught up with Colin Baker and snuck lots of hugs!

The stall was a great success, thanks to a wonderful roadie - you know who you are!

Spent time with wonderful friends, had lots of laughs, good food, and relaxing times. Revisited old haunts Glastonbury and Aldbourne on the way home.

Never stop learning...

Last week, I enjoyed an impromptue art lesson with travelling artist Jon Hall, while staying in Runswick Bay. His wonderful canvas is the big colourful one above, which will shortly be auctioned for charity. My little sketch is now at home, where it reminds me every time I look at it, of how much I learnt that day.
