Updates from my Art World XI ( March 2017)

1. Sketches on Public Transport

2. Plein Air Sloane Square completed

3. Sketches to colour

This is where I take a sketch and work on the coloured version with no colour reference, all from imagination.

4. The One Show-  finally airs the short film on Arthur Mole, a collaboration I did with photographer,  Karl Taylor. We used 600 students of St Benedict's Catholic College

Working with the students

All the students form the face of  Arthur Mole

5. Another Rain painting in Progress, this time it is of Sloane Square.

6. Went for a lovely networking meeting with some of the best emerging talent on the BBC. I was invited by Idris Elba, here's a selfie I got to snap with him.

7. I went to Fort Pitt Grammar School to deliver an Inspirational Talk before their exams and on my way in I saw this poster which I though was quite profound.

8. Demonstration at Sofap before the workshop.

The Abstract design, the painting and the picture reference.

9. I got some of my sketches  included in Kevin Scully's "Drawing and Painting on Location A guide to en plein air published by The Crowood Press.
