I am posting this appeal on behalf of one of my learners. I hope you can help...
Mark, my brother in law, has terminal cancer. In the past few years he has been a keen amateur nature photographer and this is his favourite photo which he took 'on the hoof' when the owl swooped across his path. He is also keen on art and his house is full of different nature images that he and his wife have brought each other. This weekend in coversation he said he would love to see this image reproduced in different styles of art, but would not have time to see this now. If anyone would like to have a go at creating their own intepretation of the image we would love to pass them on to him. Time is, obviously, of the essence and we understand if people cannot do this in the next few weeks.
Please email me with any results or queries.
NB- THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE RESPONDED SO FAR - PLEASE GO TO MY FACEBOOK PAGE TO SEE THE RESULTS...
I wanted to post some of the work completed at the end of the first terms course.
The learners have adapted and explored many mediums and subject matter, overcoming challenges and learning to embrace being creative on their terms. Whether it was technical ability or time for them, the work I feel speaks for itself in terms of engagement and ability.
Congratulations all who participated.
I wanted to highlight the good work thats being done by my current adult education groups (Drawing and Painting). Many of the learners haven't used the materials before and in a very short period of time are gaining technical knowledge and experimenting freely. For more information on the courses I run, please visit the course page.
Yesterday I completed a small study in watercolour. Theres no narrative behind this composition just a play with representing form, highlights and shadows.
About a week ago also completed a small collage entitled 'Winter', which unsurprisingly will be the first of a set of four.
Im feeling experimental.
I am an artist and illustrator, primarily using acrylic on canvas. For the last 20 years I have taught art and creative drawing and painting techniques to children and adults.
