In case you thought I only did drawings of swimmers nowadays, here is a little work in progress. I have an exhibition booked at Ilminster Arts Centre in July and I need to get on with quite a lot of new work, of the kind of ‘fantasy-satire’ that people expect to see there (and indeed what I expected to exhibit there when I booked it a couple of years ago). The swimming drawings probably will also feature, but I have a working title for the exhibition which is ‘A Westcountry Bestiary‘ and a nice little handful of new paintings along those lines. But not enough.
So, Medusa returns. Sort of. She is going to be a bit different to what you’d expect, but you can’t really tell from this. This is my sketch so far. The coloured one is not real colour – it’s just a bit of digital scribbling, just me pondering whether to use a lot of gold leaf… again! It is about to be transferred onto watercolour paper to be completed in real paint, and yes, possibly a lot of gold leaf.
If you haven’t seen some of my older paintings, there have been rather a lot of Medusa paintings. They are all on the old site, here.
