    Your lines continue to fly…(K)

    • I think I certainly got my money’s worth from the day. Still going! I ought to try to do a workshop a year, funds permitting.

      • kestrelart said

        I think I should do the same. It’s what you do with it after that counts, not only what happens on the day.
        Can you tell me the process that led to the first of these images please (I saw the development over several posts but what techniques did you use eventually? Lino cut and paint?)

        • So, you saw the initial sketch from the workshop. I then refined that into a single-ish line sketch, then used that for the basis of a lino cut. This one is then trying to use the underpainting idea on top of the lino print, but I didn’t get further than the initial colours. That’s about it. Not massively happy with the end result to be honest!

          • kestrelart said

            Sure. You shouldn’t be happy with it. You’re an artist. I on the other hand think it’s bloody marvellous. I’m serious. I love watching your art develop. I plan to steal all your ideas. Not really, but you are inspiring me. I played with lino a few years back and was defeated by over ambition and lack of time. I am thinking of using this three colour felt tip line abstraction and development to lino cuts as an approach to shifting my ways of seeing and thinking. I might have a go this weekend.

    where is ceasar in it.

    • Ceasar is the name of the post, not the paintings. My titles rarely have anything to do with the content! I’d been to see War of the Planet of the Apes, so you’ll also find a Maurice and, shortly, a Kobo.

      • kestrelart said

        Gotcha … Maurice
        Now I understand.
        My father’s name incidently
        He hated it and abandoned it before I was born

        • What did he change it to? Maurice is a lovely character in the films. I’ve known two Maurices and they have both been good people

          • kestrelart said

            Maurice was my grandfather’s name. I never met him. I understand he was a bully and my grand parents split acrimoniously. As an adult, my father changed to his mother’s surname partly as a result of this, partly to escape anti-semitism. But he also dropped his own first name which he shared with his father. I knew his name as Kenneth.

  3. Interesting composition. Unique.
