Entering The Derby Open

There’s an annual art exhibition at the Derby Museum & Art Gallery and this year I’ve entered two pictures in it. After much thought I’ve put forward some of my pen & ink space art pictures, both of them definitely owe a lot to Vija Celmins. Yes, I really did draw around every single one of those stars 🙂 . It’s a very good way of making your eyes go funny.

I should know within the next couple of days whether I’ve been accepted or not.


Summer Sketches

Here are some quick sketches I did during the summer, all of them done with pens, mainly brush pens. So here is my kitchen….

Burton Old Bridge….

and from the other side….


Some fruit, from our own trees (always the best)…..


and some more, always tempting to eat it before finishing the picture though….
