Drawing Diary 4 April 2019 : Dorset Minis

It’s been a busy couple of weeks because I’m preparing for my first ever exhibition. It’s a joint exhibition, in a local cafe, with two very talented painters, and it’s very exciting. I’ll share more information about it soon.

My problem is that I don’t have a lot of work to show. Most of what I draw is either for someone in particular or personal to myself. What’s left are my Dorset drawings, so that’s going to be the main theme of my part of the exhibition. In order to avoid most of the wall being completely empty, I’ve been working on a new A4-sized Dorset drawing, which is very nearly finished (the Weymouth Bay drawing I’ve posted progress shots of here before); and a new series of what I’m imaginatively calling Dorset “minis”. These are postcard sized sketches of local scenes.

So far I’ve finished three and I’m pleased with how they’ve turned out.
