Progress photos;

Last week I received an email from a lady called Poppy. I was asked if I wanted to take part in an exhibition at Newton Park for the arrival of the vice chancellor. I thought this would be a great opportunity to exhibit some work so I responded promptly with 6 images of my work. Today I received a response from Poppy exclaiming that she loves my sketchy drawings that I exhibited at the end of last term. Unfortunately the room that we are exhibiting in, does not allow nails to be put in to the walls, we are not even allowed to use command strips ! So my task for this will be to find frames with stands on so that she can place the work on to mantle pieces. I’m not sure how I feel about the work being presented in that way but I guess it is something different and I will hopefully have my say when I go to put the work up in the space. Poppy has also sent me a form to fill out about the work which I will aim to complete tonight.

As I have one more copy of the drawing of the parliament building, I thought I would use it and colour it in back. I wanted to see what it would look like as a whole when the darker spaces were all filled in.


3 paintbrushes (Daler Rowney size 2, spotter brush, sword brush) for finer details

A pack of 6 applicators for the glue
