Orbits 1..Re-start


After a short absence, I'm back at work...I've not been anywhere, I've just been unable to spend the time I need to develop my ideas.the down side to all that was the more I considered and mused on my current project,the more I didn't like it. If I'd had the time, I'd have continued regardless and no doubt been happy with the end product..So I decided the original concept was sound and decided to re work the main character. So for this, I used myself as the model...where else do you go if you need a bitter twisted old man?...none of my friends fit the bill. the sketch above shows the photo alongside!


I would also like to thank Claudine who lives in Belgium for introducing me to the work of Paul Delvaux who was an excellent painter of surrealist subjects...I'll prepare a post about his work at a later date, but I now feel regenerated to let the ink flow once again on this subject...


Other good news arriving today was confirmation that I have been accepted to exhibit at the Wirksworth Arts Festival in September....more information nearer the date.

Congratulations!
Sorry to disappoint you but you really don't resemble a bitter twisted man...But you have the power to put it into paper, that's what matters.
