Second exhib piece

Here is a quick snap of the second drawing I put in the pier exhibition. The show starts this weekend I think.

More pics from summer.

A couple of pics I sold but never had photos of before.

Recent events

Quick update:

I took my Kilau exhibition down the other week...turns out it went really well! I sold 5 works, a whole heap of cards and I also got commissioned a piece too so I was over the moon and still kind of am :) I honestly wasn't expecting it to go so well. I got great feedback from the staff, apparently it was the best selling exhibition there so far and also sparked the most interest/good comments from people! Finding out all of this has made me feel so much more confident in the studio.

I had a great day in the studio today, I was in for about 9 hours which was good. I finally feel like I have 'clicked' and I think I'm starting to get somewhere with my drawings. Up 'til now everything has felt like a constant experiment but today I drew out a portrait and started layering tracing paper on it and working on the new layers and I feel like I've found the right route to where I'm trying to get at last. I'm hoping to get a lot done this week, I will have to take my camera to share the progress as I haven't put anything proper up for ages.

The pier got my drawings in time and so I think they are both going to be in the show. They are definitely in the store room there anyway so that's good.

My dissertation is going well, I have written 2/3 the word count and I just had a tutorial with Ewan which was very helpful indeed. I now know what I want to include in my last section of main writing and then once I have done that I just need to edit it.

Out of the studio, I have been busy applying to language courses and placements for next year. Waiting on reference from tutor and then will get them posted soon I hope. It looks like I should be able to take evening classes next semester which would be fantastic. I am not so great at French these days but hopefully it will all come back to memory quickly.

Blogger is being rubbish at uploading pictures tonight so here is one (of two) new art pieces I have come up with for the winter exhibition at the Pier Arts Centre.

The photos are not fantastic, I'll take proper ones later. I'm pretty happy with them, I think they look nice in their frames. Will post them home tomorrow morning and hope that they make it in time for the deadline...
