I started a new drawing for an exposition at the Galerie du Pressoir in 2013, "Les Peintres d'Ecublens". The image above is a crop of the sketch and the first reference shading for the rest of the drawing.
The image above is a teaser of what I have been working on for my birthday on the 31st of December. New Year's Eve is a tough day to get people together for a birthday party so I have decided to do something a little different for my 50th birthday.
I have invited family and friends to stop by the Galerie du Pressoir on the 31st for a one day showing of my art work. I will be there from 10 AM until 8 PM putting the finishing touches on the drawing depicted above. Can you guess what it is?
No post since March. What a shame. It's not that I haven't been drawing, I have. It's just that I've neglected my art site over the last several months. So to get back into the swing of things I thought I would give the website a facelift. I also updated the gallery with some drawings that you may not have seen yet.
Don't hesitate to drop me a line with your feedback.
Iwas asked by our pastor here in Ecublens / St. Sulpice to create a drawing for this year's confirmation. Each person confirming this year will receive a limited print 30cm x 40cm of this original graphite drawing 50cm x 70cm. The theme is Jesus meets with Peter after the resurrection.
I wanted to give the drawing some local significance so I added the lake Leman and the mountain les Dents d'Oche in the background.
