Orsolino

This is a wee Bear in the snow, who I’m tempted to call Edward Bear.
He started life (oil on canvas board) as Ursa Minor, the Constellation which has the North Star at the tip of his long tail. So this is the kind of Bear who is a guide to wayfarers, especially in snowy winter weather.

Sculpture – La Greca

Posted in Painting Diary with tags , , , on September 29, 2014 by Jenny

I’m making a small sculpture out of brown Plasticine. It’s more or less a classical Grecian style woman, or Goddess. Something old, something new. It’s so small that I can’t easily smooth the areas around eyes and mouth. A bigger size next time, I think.

Neo

Half ancient, quite modern. Part graphite, part photo plus digi-paint. Half finished. An offering to the blog: a trifle, in a hat.

A Suffolk Palimpsest

Posted in Painting Diary with tags , , , , , , on September 16, 2014 by Jenny

I’m on the theme of Suffolk, still, after visiting one weekend in the summer. It’s where my English family comes from. This is a computer painting based on a vintage photograph, partly scraped away and painted over the top. It’s the kind of place where you’d get cockles and scampi and chips in a pub by the dock, and where the voices would sound something like my grandpa. It’s a very beautiful accent. “Yew oroit bor?”

Walberswick Beach

Posted in Painting Diary on September 8, 2014 by Jenny

In Suffolk in early August, I saw an Indian family on the beach at Walberswick, right near the spot where Phillip Wilson Steer painted those Edwardian girls in the captivating, glinting sea light.

Vegetabley Thing

I’m on holiday. I’m drawing imaginary vegetables on my iPad. In the heat. It takes all sorts.
