Back from holiday


Posted 02 Nov 2009

We’ve been away on holiday for a week, sharing a large old Vicarage property with some friends. I managed to draw a few sketches: ideas for cartoons based on Revelation. It’s good to be back at home & I’m more than ready to get back to work! We were able to visit a few art galleries, which is always a treat. I saw some of Gillian MacDonald’s watercolour prints. I like her bold & atmospheric landscape style. I have found other watercolourists work far too watery! I preferring bold, colourful, dramatic renderings.

I’ve just completed a Nativity scene from Luke’s gospel, where the shepherd’s see a multitude of angels. Here’s the cartoons: both the greyscale version (where I worked out the tones of the picture) & the finished coloured version.
