Its Saturday …
So the year begins, with my regular fortnightly Friday art class.. This session was called Monochrome Heads we were expected to make portraits using inks or black and white paints. I used largish brushes, water and ink., also a Bamboo pen on brown paper. We were encouraged to look at the work of Marlene Dumas, a South African artist whose inspirational portraiture was on show at Tate Modern in 2015.
I am not familiar with her work and not sure if I liked it that much, but I could see some potential and having paid in advance; it would have been foolish not to attend.
I have over the last few months I have become more comfortable in the classroom but not yet inclined to play, which is a shame because this was the very opportunity to play after a sad week.
However, it was not all bad and the results not brilliant but not all destined for the bin.
