life drawing and fabric... a work in progress

I have been trying to improve my life drawing skills in Dean Clough and Cottingley for the past few years and wondering about whether it is possible to combine life drawing and painting with my interest in fabric and embroidery. This exhibition is very much a work in progress. Some of my explorations might lead to further development, some may be dead ends. I would welcome feedback.

See – KUTAC Summer Show

At the end of July I took part in an exhibition in Brighton organised by a group called KUTAC that my daughter is a member of. When visiting her in Brighton I joined some KUTAC meetings, and they allowed me to join them for the exhibition. The exhibition was in Brighton Fishing Quarter Gallery, in one of the arches on the seafront. I exhibited one of my screens, a portrait and life drawing piece. I really enjoyed it – it was a lovely space and sitting at the door drawing the seafront whilst invigilating was a delight. I thought the exhibition hung together extremely well. There were loads of very appreciative comments and it was good to be part of it.
