I can’t believe I have not finished my drawing of Misbah’s push up warm up but I have been busy with print sales this week and preparing for my art fair on Sunday. However the bits I have been working on have been quality. Here is a timelapse of me drawing Misbah himself.
On Sunday I am attending the first art fair for Cheshire Makers which is being held at the Lion Salt Works in Northwich. Art fairs are a great opportunity to meet your public, to network with other artists and showcase your art (if you’re lucky you might also get some sales!) This is where I am this Sunday…
I’ve been working on trying out my oil painting skills – very mixed results. Trying to paint a dog was particularly interesting because I know how to draw a dog but not how to use the paints properly. It’s great having a go at another medium but can also be frustrating when you don’t immediately get the results that you want (it’s also expensive).
I’ve put it to one side for now, I could scrap it or finish it. I can’t help but think that it would make a wonderful pastel drawing instead ….
Completed in charcoal and pastel this is a commission. A Pakistan cricket team fan wants 4 drawings completed of his favourite players. What made this particular drawing a challenge was that quite alot of bowlers pull such awful faces when they bowl. Mr Khan likes to push out his bottom lip, others stick their tongue out etc. I could not draw them like that so I had to root around for alternative images to create a much more pleasing drawing. This drawing is available as limited edition prints, click on the image to follow the link to my shop.
