'3' Exhibition. Artist Gallery, Electric House, Ipswich. 06/06/09 - 14/06/09 For more information please visit 'Lielow and Sketch' website. Here are my entries
A new image, reworked from old drawings. I've wanted to play around with a few more fashion orientated images for a while. About three years ago I produced a number of drawings intended to be used for such purpose but never got around to doing anything with them, until now. This image should be the first of a few over the next couple of months.
A reworked image from a few weeks ago about ducks in Stowmarket. I must say i think i prefer the original, but Gemma prefers the new reworked version so i flipped a coin and it landed on heads.... the reworked version.
'PQ' an old(ish) self promotional image i've being using in 2009.

It has been said that in Stowmarket they are more ducks than people. Everywhere i travel around here i am greeted by flying ducks trying to knock me off my bike or have to stop in the car to let a duck family cross the road. I am ashamed to say that the only thing i can think of when i am greeted by a duck is how good duck tastes with cherry sauce....mmmmm.

A few weeks ago me and Gemma went for a wonder around Flatford Mill about half a hours drive away from where we live in Suffolk. The day was beautiful, and the scenery sublime. I took with-me some suitable artistic recording equipment (pencils / sketchbook and a camera) and started to draw. Looking out upon the landscape as Constable had some 200 years previous.. looking for inspiration.
After 30mins i quickly found myself becoming bored of the trees, bushes, streams and cottages. Its great... beautiful, but not for me... it just wasn't working. I then started to look around and watch how the visitors started to interact with the landscape and with each other.
Then, the place in which constable painted so many of his memorable and famous paintings started to come alive with the hustle and bustle of people. This was something i didn't expect, crowds of people walking through fields following the well trodden path towards Dedham village. It was then I found my personal interest i was looking for in this beautiful landscape.
I also found these consumer beef products quite interesting too... I've never been a one for drawing animals. So for the first time in public, here's some COWS...yumyum.
