Life Drawing 27th Nov 2014

Last session of the term tonight. I didn’t have a chance to prep any coloured canvasses this time so I tried to get as much proper BG in there as possible.

I won the coveted “Life model takes photograph of painting” award tonight for the very first time! (its taken nigh on 20 years for that to happen…) – Thanks Nina, and good luck with the travelling next year :D

Trolling Banksy

Another day,  another mural by an infamous street artist. Only this time its on the wall of the building where I work. Here it is in all its – already defaced – glory.

It seemed to be lacking something for me. Maybe it was the monochrome, maybe it was tarnished by the vandalism (vandalising graffiti, that’ll never get old…) but what it really had was 100% less lasers than I thought it needed

I reckon the Banksies could have tried a bit harder to be honest. I mean, its only really black and white… so I thought I’d man up and finish off the job. Here you go lovey…

For good measure, here’s how it looked (courtesy of bbc.co.uk/news via Banksy.co.uk) before someone decided to spray black paint all over one side, almost entirely missing the painting. Which wasn’t a deliberate publicity stunt or anything. Nuh-uh. No way sirree bob.

Thomas Rileys Interstellar Peep Show

I was talking to a friend at work about this pic, which hung for nearly 6 months on the wall outside of the staff common room at my secondary school when I was doing A-levels. I think I must have been 17… feck. Twenty years ago 0_o

I can’t find the original scan, but this will do. I cut in a few extra bits (read slapped them over the top willy nilly) a few years later.

Not being able to take decent photos of my arts is really starting to bake my noodle… *calls photographer friend…

Which reminds me. Chris – don’t know if you read this thing, but good shout on looking at the black and white views to see how the colour values work. Interesting…
