Tuesday 11. 10. 16 Did this oil pastel sketch of Edward’s hand on Sunday. Alas I have had no other photos of hands despite asking about 20 people for them!

Thursday 06. 10. 16 Went to Marseille yesterday with Patricia as she had to renew her Swiss passport. Walked all around the MUCEM but didn’t go inside to any of the expos. Also took the Hop on and Off bus up to Notre Dame de la Garde and back. Had a tasty lunch of sardines and generally wandered around. We drove to Montpellier and then took the train to Marseille.

Monday 03. 10. 16 This is the first in yet another new series. Inspired by my visit to Reading Jail I have asked some friends to send photos of their hands so that I can make a portrait of them. These are Jason’s hands on his scooter.

London, Cambridge and Reading

 

sketch1

Friday 23. 09. 16 Just back from a busy week in the UK. Besides seeing a number of friends I went to the Hockney show at the RA, a display of medieval illuminated Ms at the Fitzwilliam museum Cambridge and an Artangel installation at Reading Gaol plus both Tates and the new Switch House at Tate Modern. A stimulating trip. I stayed at Beit Hall which is part of Imperial College, very comfortable, reasonable rates and conveniently situated. I made this sketch en plein air whilst waiting for the Reading Gaol expo to open. It is the view from the garden at the Town Hall.
