This weekend was a very relaxing and creative one. It was the first time this year I’ve managed to spend time quietly sketching. I was able to do a few drawings including the images attached.
I was also fortunate to visit the Works on Paper Fair, now in it’s fifth year at London’s Science Museum. The fair brings together an impressive range of art on paper exhibited by 50 leading art dealers. The show presented a diverse range of early, modern and contemporary watercolours, drawings, prints, original posters and photographs from the late 15th Century to the present day. All artwork was original with prices ranging from a modest £250, to the majority on offer from £500-£10,000 and rising to £75,000 for exceptional pieces. I wasn’t able to take full advantage of the many free talks or daily tours but I did speak to a number of the exhibitors and artists. I was most impressed with the work of Patha Pratim Mondal, represented by Art Border Line. Mondal’s drawings focused on the under privileged and those who continue to pass below the social radar. There are a few forthcoming exhibitions in the diary I plan to see and I look forward to sharing my views with you.
