So excited! Long awaited summer break has finally arrived. And with it 7 weeks of pleasant travels in Europe. As I have considerably more time on my hands I have returned to good old sketching practices and with them to drawings of my lovely friends. I have finished this one just this morning and am full of hope that it will be to Imran’s taste. On the end of the day – he is a keen gamer, isn’t he?

Daria’s portrait

My friend Daria has had her birthday recently and she ‘subtly’ suggested that her living room wall is a bit empty and in need of something new. Well, I did not fancy finding myself on the bad side of Daria (which would probably include sudden appearance of more than quirky pictures on my Facebook page or encyclopaedia send in parts via messages as I can recall) so I got to work on her portrait. It’s A3 size, watercolour and pen on paper and I really hope that Daria likes it.

Well, yesterday was Monday, it was very, very hot and humid and as we coming towards the end of the school year (just week and a half left 🙂 ) we all are getting a bit more relaxed. (more…)

Hey again. I managed to find some time and work on pics from an AQA Photography training that had happened on the beginning of this month. In the nutshell we have been learning how to teach photography at GSCE level (so it’s official I am train to do now those photo lessons with my 16’s that I have been doing since September).

Funny to say, this training had sense (how many of you’ve been ever spending unproductive hours on some boring, useless, dull training, thinking that it’s just a waste of time and your company should better invest those couple hundred quit in some valuable stuff, for example beer for YOUR personal use or at least paintballing – you could get relaxed a bit and there isn’t many things better than shouting your boss in the ….). Anyway as I said it was very good, mostly because our lecturer really knew what he was talking about.  No small talk, just pure info.

I’ve just been back from my photo night at Dunchurch Photographic Society where we were holding an expert critique evening with Graham Hodgkiss. I have to say that it is a very satisfying thing to listen to someone that knows an awful about the craft and has been doing it for longer that I’ve lived. Mr Hodgkiss has very wide knowledge, both in principals of photography and in post processing and he made the evening very interesting.  As usual level of submitted pictures varied.  I put two of my own ones. One pic of Ange, my flatmate, and one that has been taken in October in St Davies cathedral.  Happily none of them have been rubbished.

Comment about first one was that the face is too still and it would improve a lot by engaging mouth a bit more. So be prepared Ange, I will practice on you pretty soon.

I made this self portrait a recently and get around taking a pic of it to post on the blog. Its 50X40 cm, ink and pencil. I really like inks, the way you can build layers with them. Combination of black, brown and gold looks fine too.

Through it’s not the most ‘happy chappy’ image image on the world it made me feel good after finishing.

Hi there. Not so long ago was my dad’s b-day. I decided this time to make it special and make him his portrait. Of course as it supposed to be a surprise it had to be done from picture rather than first hand. Finding a pic was a bit problematic but I am quite happy with the result. Background has been stylised as old fisherman pub (guess what is my daddies hobby).  Done in acrylic, 40×50 cm. I even manage to ship it to Poland ready for the day.
