Capstan’s Bazaar – This weekend!

December 5, 2013


I’m always disappointed when I go to arts & crafts fairs and everything in there either looks like its been bought from Dunelm Mill or it’s rediculously overpriced. I was so pleased (and a little surprised) when I visited Capstan’s Bazaar. There’s work being sold by brilliant artists, of really high quality and reasonable prices.

I picked up 2 screen beautiful screen prints by artist Laura-Kate, I really love them, I’m hoping to pick some more up this weekend.

Seriously, get yourselves to the market this weekend, alongside the artists, they’ve got pizza, cakes, cocktails, handmade jewlery, furniture….

Portrait – step by step

60 x 60 cm oil on canvas

Pretty typical of how I paint most portraits, took a little longer than most – around 20 hours.

Cover your ears if you’re easily offended

I’ve been cleaning up an old computer and came across a few films and projects that I’d been working on way back when. I made this 8 years ago and it brought back some good memories.
Can you imagine the Manchester skyline without the Beetham Tower? – me neither. It was being built at the time and Jane reckoned that when finished, the hotel would be so ‘posh’, you’d be able to call reception and ask them to go out and get you 20 Marlborough Lights and bring them to your room…
Firstly, it’s interesting that we defined a posh hotel by it’s ability to cater for our fagging needs. And secondly, they don’t – we tried.

Evan Penny. His work is large, detailed and intimidating. Something almost alive about these pieces. But they are also not conventionally beautiful. Although there is a sense of confidence about the figures.
