Yesterday I carried on with my pet project based around the history of the electronic buzzer game Operation. As usual with these paintings I take various photos to help with the pose but it just occurred to me that I have never posted any of these silly pictures. So here's one of the many I used to help with the grip on the left hand.
Likewise, another to aid the blanket draping over the monster, both photos are just some of many I take during the painting process and I have them set to the right of my easel for reference.
It was fab, things have really moved on since I last had an art lesson. Some of the artwork being produced was quite astounding, we are talking big pieces too not some small A4 pencil drawings of mushrooms that seemed to make up most of my art education. Holly's display was very impressive, plenty of work handling light and structure using a variety of materials and techniques. The exhibition was enormous and encompassed an entire floor of the school, impressive.
So I'll leave you with Holly and her final piece entitled 'Bubbles' on display proudly in the canteen area of Samworth Church Academy in Mansfield. Well done Holly!
