Kid gloves drawings
Kid gloves. Oil pastel on mixed papers on cardboard.

This work featured in the Bartleby exhibition in Berlin.

The drawings are of a pair of gardening gloves, bought from a Berlin hardware store (Bauhaus). 3 different types of paper were used in it’s creation. One is patterned with Russian dolls (Matryoshka).

The title “Kid gloves” is a reference to the situation in Ukraine and Europe’s approach to Russia and it’s involvement in the conflict there and its annexation of Crimea.

A second pair of gloves were also studied to produce a third piece of work at the exhibition.

“Eine flasche wasser, bitte.”(“A bottle of water, please”
Oil pastel on paper on cardboard.

This was a piece of work shown at the Bartleby exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

Berlin has relatively hot summers; in London Tube passengers are advised to carry a bottle of water with them, largely due to the lack of air conditioning in London’s underground system. I continued the habit of carrying a bottle of water with me in Berlin.

This artwork is both a portrait of a constant companion in a foreign land and a familiar friend from home.

The title “Eine flasche wasser, bitte.” translates from German to English as “A bottle of water, please”. One of the few phrases I learnt while in Berlin.

The work comprises of a number of drawn studies of a plastic water bottle, cut out onto cardboard. Each drawing is then fixed to the background at varying distances, to create a feeling of depth.

I continue to develop drawings of objects using old pastel on coloured paper. Here I’ve been studying An Ice Hockey mask and gloves with a view to combining drawings of these objects with others.

Studies of an Ice Hockey glove, tape measure and an army boot. All drawings are oil pastel on paper.
I use a quick quick drawing technique to keep the work fresh and honest, whilst tending to the technical skill side of my artwork.

Sketches with oil pastel (Skulls & Gloves)

Here are a few images of sketches I’ve been doing recently with a lump of oil pastel. I have a skull, several gardening and workmans gloves around the flat, which make convenient objects to draw.
