In support of MacMillan Cancer Care Trust, I have been accepted to exhibit two of my latest drawings. Showing a my favourite breed of horse, the Andalusian I enjoy recreating the strong sculptural lines of this ancient breed of horse. They are on display and also for sale, until 11th July at the Civic Centre in Holmfirth.
If you want to know more about me, my inspiration as an artist, please see the video below.
Year 7's were very active in fulfilling their project to create a 'selfie' by researching and choosing a background. They utilised all their painting skills to achieve a painting that shows a memorable place with personal attachment. Its a good to bring the two together, modern technology with the ancient tradition of art and painting.

Having prepared a canvas on a stretcher frame I primed it with a couple of coats of gesso, and using charcoal I sketched in a figure of a horse in a winter wonderland. I wanted to highlight the way to work with white on white, using varying degrees of shaded tones. Using a combination of masked out areas and by letting the paint flow easily around the canvas, I worked with the intention of losing the image and then re-finding it with highlights. Its still a work in progress, but I am hoping it will be this years Christmas Card image. If you would like to send your friends a unique Christmas Greeting, please let me know, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to all the lovely people at Brighouse art Circle who made me fee so welcome!
