It was fun being Artist in Residence – and even more fun referring to ‘my Residency’ – “of course, during my Residency …..”
As people were coming past all the time, I did a sort of mini-study of local characters.
This is ‘Tom’s world’
Tom is a well known character around town, who drives his motorised wheelchair around with aplomb.
I also did another version of ‘Mrs Knowles in her sweetshop’.
Mrs Knowles is such a sweet character, and her shop is so fascinating, with its old fashioned jars of sweets, newspapers and smoking paraphernalia, that I have painted her several times.
I also did an amended version of ‘David sails away again’.
It is based on one of the yachtsmen at the harbour.
So it was a very productive three weeks. Shattered now though!
