So, mixed success with local craft fairs. What I need to do is to look ahead – September – village. Fete so will need to do more drawings of the village. Christmas seasonal event demand – cards and wintry scenes possibly. A good range of reasons for more art productivity.
At present I have a watercolour gummed pad that I have started to use. Thicker, textured watercolour paper. It presents a good looking surface for Promarker pieces. The taking of local photos and doing a range of sketches now pay off as I have a range of source materials to work from. The main focus is local landscapes but including boats – sailing, diving, fishing, gig rowing – this can also link into PAW 2018 theme of “Movement”.
So I have produced eight pieces so far, I am sharing them through the Facebook and Twitter accounts specifically for AndyKnillArt and my personal Instagram account.
These are the current pieces:
The Purbeck sections of the Jurassic coast and South West Coast Path provide a wide range of views to develop and different points to draw from as these two show. the first from Swyre Head, the second from below Houns Tout.
Any comments are welcome.
