Catching up

I've been set the impossible task of completing 50 self-portraits by's not possible. Im demotivated and running low on watercolour (again) so decided to do a pencil drawing which takes twice as taking a little break.

Reading: The Jewel of St Petersburg (been on the second chapter since christmas so im not sure it counts)

Listening: to "Brothers" The Black keys Albumn

Drinking: tea :)

Wanting: some inspiration, which may come in the form of going to London some point soon

Loving: Xaver Messerschmidt, amazing sculptures
Back to portraits, im going to face this challenge. Wish me luck

Blank Canvas exhibition

These are a few photos from the exhibition at the Buszy, Blank Canvas art show last month. My work :) yesss!


Some portraits i did for stage two of my project. When taking the photos i noticed peoples intial reaction was to pull a face, this was a reaction to the invasion of personal space...and made the portraits funner to paint ;)

Oh how i envy those how can spend money on clothes, and even more those who can spend no money on clothes. I think charity shop shopping is a skill i just can't master:(

But alas, my next pay check will provide nothing for my wardrobe as it'll be going straight on art supplies...not that i mind, i think im am one of the few people on the planet that gets excited by paintbrushes and new pencils, blank sketchbooks and fresh paints.
And clothes no longer matter(im lying they totally matter), they all end up covered in paint anyway :P

Assessment week and the long dtretch that is Final Major project lies before me :/ aha no...well exciting.
