⏳ HI DARLINGS ! AFTER PRACTISING STUDIES OF FEW MINUTES, IT’S SO COMFORTING TRYING ANOTHER OF SIXTY. GREAT WORK!
Here’s a 60 minute pose from life drawing session a few nights ago at Swansea Print Workshop. It has some difficult foreshortening and I ended up with two hands, two feet and a head which is a lot of drawing. It’s distorted but I like that. I admire the work of Egon Schiele, who also distorted some of his nudes, so if it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me.
A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks
I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

🎶 🎶 🎶 HELLO DEARS! I LOVE THESE SKETCHES AND I ADORE THE VIDEO OF CHARLOTTE SINGING THAT JOYFUL PIECE OF GOUNOD FROM A BALCONY.
You are my only fave soprano, ever! Thank you so much for this interview! Just so everyone knows, I put my questions/voice in regular type. I put Charlotte’s answers/voice in italics. So, let’s get rolling!
Resa: – Charlotte, have you ever worn an expensive costume, and spilled something on it, torn it or otherwise perhaps even ruined it?
Charlotte: I can remember two occasions with costumes/dresses that I was performing in that I owned. However, stage costume wise no mishaps happily. Touch wood! I’m always really careful.
I was at Edvard Grieg’s house in Troldhaugen, Norway. I was about to perform in the composer’s home. It’s a converted living museum, with his original piano and lots of important antiques around. It has a beautiful concert hall.
In the green room in the basement of the house, I was with the other singers from the workshop. Another person had…

⚓ HELLO SUGARS, AS YOU CAN SEE. JUST A PENCIL CAN BE ENOUGH TO EXPRESS ANY EMOTION. LET’S REALIZE IN THIS TENDER SKETCH, THE DIFFERENT GREYS BETWEEN THE HEAD OF THIS SEAL AND THE REST OF THE BODY INTO THE WATER.
New England Aquarium Drawings🐟
Boston’s aquarium may be closed for now, but staff are still in there feeding, cleaning tanks, and posting live content. Today’s art challenge is to visit the New England Aquarium virtually. Choose a live video to watch, then at the end pause it on a still image you would like to draw through observation. We watched Rodney the octopus get fed 🦑, the training of Ron the sea lion, and Myrtle the turtle eat her breakfast.🐢 There is lots of virtual visit videos to choose from…what will you draw? ✏️

🎨 HI SISTERS! EACH COLOUR OF A PALETTE IS WONDERFUL, BUT PURPLE IS SPECIALLY POWERFUL AND CHARMING. THANK YOU LIISA !
After a long break I’ve had time to make some bras again. These dark purple ones are made with my favourite pattern, the Harriet bra by Cloth Habit. I’ve adjusted the cradle and cup a little for a better fit and there are slight differences in their construction which I’ll explain below for those who are interested. The bottom left one is the latest one I sewed and one which I dyed myself. The other two are made with materials I ordered from B,Wear in Sweden.
The Swedish online store has beautifully coordinated bra making kits. B,Wear also sells some patterns and quality materials by the meter. The powernet and duoplex of the bra making kit is enough to make more than one bra, so I ordered a couple of extra findings kits in the same colour. This is the “Black Cherry” Trio bra kit: non-stretch duoplex for the frame…

😋 HI DEARS! TODAY WE ARE WITH A PERFECT LANDSCAPE: ROSIE, HOCKNEY AND HER DELICIOUS CRUMBLE. THANKS SO MUCH, ARTISTS!
I finished faking Friday’s faux Hockney, that’s about 4 hours in all. I’m not a painter, I much prefer drawing and printmaking. If I’m honest, to me, painting is like colouring in. I know painters will be outraged, but once I’ve done the drawing, that’s the creative bit over for me. But, doing these weekly paintings has been good practice and kept me occupied through the pandemic.
I also made a couple of rhubarb crumbles. I’m taking the big crumble to family for their tea and the smaller one is for Husb. He takes no prisoners when it comes to crumble.
The rhubarb in the garden is HUGE! It’s like a rhubarb jungle out there.
Why not join in with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Friday lunchtimes. It’s free or a donation if you can afford it. Next week is Turner’s The Fighting Temeraire.
