After the summer off, we’re back to Life Drawing! And we had the lovely Carolina — always such a wonderful model!!
Mannequins shot with my beloved Holga on Rollei CrossBird 200 slide (cross process) film. A few weekends ago Mark and I came across these fabulous mannequins outside the new Tap & Barrel patio! Two rather drunk and happy guys hopped over to tell us their story about buying them from a Lingerie storing closing in the Quay! Was such a great photo opportunity!!

I haven't posted my Photography here yet, but thought I'd start! I've been shooting a lot recently, and trying out wonderful new Films with my Sweetie. And we're developing our Black & White Film at home, in my kitchen! I love the grain of film, and the process and satisfaction of home developing.
Here are a few Black & White Film photos, shot with my Canon EOS1N RS (aka "Baby") with the new-to-me, reissued, legendary Adox Scala 160 ISO BW Reversal Film (previously Silvermax) and home developed with Mark (www.markklotz.com).

"... compared to the original film, this improved version comes in a slower speed (160 ISO) and finer grain... It features an increased silver content (in comparison to a negative film) ... and due to a very efficient anti-halation layer, situated between the base and emulsion layers, the film offers very good resolving power and high contour sharpness."
Our Simply Drawing Annual Show is coming up soon!
Artists in attendance, with figure drawings and paintings for sale.
One night only!!
Friday June 22, 6 pm – 9 pm

VENUS RISING — OUR LIFE DRAWING GROUP'S SHOW!
Currently on display at Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre

A few photos of my series – aptly described as 'Renaissance Andy Warhol'. A series of digital print transfers of my drawing onto unstretched canvas, and then embellished in a series of progression and references to elements in the original painting.
Venus Rising: Paintings and Drawings Opening Reception
Hosted by Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
7 PM - 9 PM
There are certain works of art that reach such a level of fame that they become an archetypal reference point or even a catalyst for our meditations on the mysteries of human existence. Botticelli’s Birth of Venus (or Venus Rising) c. 1480 is one such painting. In this work the viewer becomes a witness to the birth of Venus. In this exhibition 14 artists study and reinterpret this painting. For 15 months these artists have contemplated, examined and recast this monumental artistic achievement. In the process they have reflected deeply on its impact on the history of art, feminism, and popular culture. How has this painting shaped our notions of physical beauty, they ask?
The exhibition’s opening night will be held within the museum from 7pm to 9pm, where light refreshments will be served.
Admission to this event is free.
