Tenby Harbour 5

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa 0 comments
I am more or less at the end of my Tenby Harbour scene now,after adding some boats and the front wall with foreground detail, plus a fewmore leaves to the tree.

I took lots of photos while I was there.  The next painting might be St Catherine’sIsland, which is off the Tenby coast, and this will be done in pencil withperhaps crayon to add some colour.  Thisis because the art group’s next project will be pencil drawing – occasionallywe have a project that involves using a particular medium rather than on aparticular subject.  For example, in thepast, we have had pastels.  I hope tohave at least two Tenby paintings ready for the Easter exhibition, and will also be adding this one to my art website (link at top of page) to sell for about £35.  This next one should be done fairly quickly,as I find pencil is a fast medium to use, partly because it is so controllableand also you do not have to wait for it to dry.
The other group members continued to progress with their workthis week, Karen, her large tiger painting, John his Irish terrier, andElizabeth, a Scottish loch scene.  Sue hasplenty of bird photos as her husband is a keen birdwatcher (the featheredvariety) and likes photographing them. She was working on a painting of an owl with a border.

Full of Beans

Yesterday, I went along to a“Creative Coffee” event held by the Creative Greenhouse, a local organisationfor people employed in art/design and other creative industries.  Usually their events are held at Nottinghamor Chesterfield, but this time we met at Bolsover, which is easier for me toget to, so I went along and met a few other arty bods and the man who runs theorganisation, Paul Hough.  There wereabout 12 of us there, which was quite a good turnout considering that it was acold and rainy day.  We met at “Beans” caféon Station Road, and I noticed that that Karen Smith, the owner, had lots ofartwork from different artists displayed around the premises.  She said that this was there to help her makea profit, and it did enhance the appearance of the place too.  It is quite a small café and there wasn’t anyspace left so I didn’t ask if I or the art group could have a display.  In the video below, Karen tells you more about the cafe.


The Greenhouse has existed for many years, and had receivedEuropean grant funding until last year.  Thiswas then withdrawn but after this, Paul was employed by the local council forone day a week to continue his work.  Hehas applied for Arts Council funding, which has been granted subject to certainconditions.  Paul gave us an update onhow things were progressing, asked us what guest speakers would be beneficialto us.  It seemed that one on socialmedia and websites would, so he is hoping to organise something on these lines.  The tourism officer from Bolsover Council wasalso there and told us that the Olympic torch comes to Bolsover on 29thJune, and there will be a festival for about a month after that, so there maybe the opportunity to show or promote our work. I’ve asked to be kept informed about this, as the art group wouldprobably be interested.

Among the creative people there were two artists based atthe nearby Harley Gallery (which I mentioned last week): one was a sculptor,who is planning to create a “green” wall for the District Council, ready forwhen they move offices to the old Chesterfield College site in Clowne.  The other was Sarah Godfrey, who specialisesin printmaking.  Above are some examplesof “monoprints” (one-off prints) produced by people taught by her, and here's a link to her site. http://www.nontoxicprintmaking.co.uk/

Tenby Harbour 4

I am on the fourth week of my Tenby Harbour picture.  I have completed the houses at the back ofthe harbour and the roof of the lifeboat rescue station, added the beach usingNaples yellow mixed with a bit of grey to tone it down, and have begun the treeon the left of the picture.  The nextstage will be to add the boats, which at the moment, have the Naples yellowcolourwash over them.  I often have towait until a wash like this dries completely until I can see the pencil marksunder it.  It is, however, easier to doit this way than to paint the boats then go around them with the beach colour.  I can faintly see the outline of the boats andwill be doing them next. 

At art group this week, Elizabeth was beginning a newpainting, of Scotland.  Kevin suggested puttingin some “carrot people” to add interest. “What’s a carrot person?” I asked. He showed me by sketching some little dark figures which could bedistant figures on a painting – and yes they were carrot shaped, with the tuftson top being the head.  You could do adog too, he said, “Would it be a sausage dog?” asked Elizabeth, keeping with thefood theme.  Meanwhile, Gill hadcompleted her owl and was drawing a glass of water for practice at drawingshapes, Karen continued with her portrait of her mum and John with his Irishterrier pastel.  Sue was nearing the endof her painting of chickens.
Two of our members had entered for the first ever HarleyGallery open exhibition, but unfortunately only one had been accepted.  The one who’d been accepted thought that someof the “reject” work was better than what was on show.  All paintings had to be entitled somethingbeginning with the letter “h”, which was a bit restrictive.  I didn’t enter, partly because I didn’t haveanything that begun with that letter at the time.  The Harley is a on theWelbeck estate.  It used to be a gasworkswhen first built, and has beautiful architecture which it would have been ashame not to preserve.  http://www.harleygallery.co.uk/
This week, I have a new link, to the website of CorinneLee-Cooke, a local freelance illustrator. The link is on the right, but to save you having to scroll down thepage, here’s another:  http://www.coroflot.com/violetlake

Christopher Atkinson and Adrian Holt

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa 0 comments
For this week’s update I am featuring the work of Christopher Atkinson, who joined Artists of Derbyshire (link above) a few months ago, and Adrian Holt, who enquired about joining but then created his own site http://www.adrianholt.com/

Devonshire Arms in midwinter
First of all Christopher. Christopher lives in the Bolsover area and has been painting for a number of years. He is inspired by Ashley Jackson, whom he has met, and whose site is at http://www.ashley-jackson.co.uk/. He learned to paint from Matthew Palmer, a local professional artist who runs classes in the area, as well as painting holidays and even his own TV series "Paint along with Matthew Palmer" on Sky 166 (Matthew’s site is at: http://www.mattartist.co.uk/). Christopher mainly paints in watercolours. I notice that many people seem to start with this medium. Although it is not always the easiest to work in, the paint dries quickly and you don’t need any special equipment. He likes to paint local scenes and landscapes from within the county.

Gold Hill - original of this and Devonshire Arms available to buy on AOD (link at top of page)
Adrian Holt is a ceramicist (potter) who produces potteryanimals, bugs, and figures, which seem to have an African influence, as well asmasks, in a similar style.  Hislandscapes remind me of quartz and Blue John formations and can be hung on thewall  (Blue John is a stone unique to the Peak District). I like his pots best, and they come in a variety of original shapes andcolours, the colours vary according to how they are glazed.  Adrian sometimes works on projects inschools, and you can see photos of him doing this on his website (link at top of page).

I see from the Arts Derbyshire website that Adrian has an event on at the moment at Glossop, where you can learn to make a coiled pot.  See their website for more details http://www.artsderbyshire.org.uk/

Tenby Harbour 3

The painting is slowly taking shape, with the latest housesbeing of muddier colours after last week’s pastels, as some of these are in theshade.  It is very detailed work and I amusing a magnifier to get it as neat as possible.
This week, I have applied to exhibit at a CreativeGreenhouse’s spring exhibition in Nottinghamshire.  I’ve been a member several years now andthought it was about time I took part in one of their events.   If successful, I will hear by mid January,but, according to the bumph, the closing date is also mid January (16th),so I shouldn’t have long to wait. 

Snow bunnies
At art group, Maggie had completed a painting of a fantasywoodland scene with nymphs and a carved wooden tree, and Sue was working onsome cockerels, while John continued with his pastel dog.  Jim, had returned after several weeks’absence, as life had been busy for him. He showed us a beautiful painting of snow-covered woodlands, with lightand shade depicted faultlessly.   I wishmy “snow bunnies” had come out as well as that. Jim’s painting had been done from a better photograph than mine, though.  “It’s my show winner,” said Karen as groupmembers gathered round and complimented him.

Karen herself was working on a painting of her mum, also agroup member, who died late last year (see my post “Tribute to Madge” of November 2011).   She was using an old photograph as Madge hadbeen quite glamorous in her youth, and I have a feeling the painting will be apresent for Karen’s dad.

Last week I mentioned the Idle Valley Nature reserve, butlittle did I know I would get to visit it so soon.  That evening, as it turned out, I was therewith the family, for an astronomy evening, as was group member John and hiswife.  My role was as chief babysitter,and it was of course too dark to observe any wildlife, but I can confirm thatthe visitor centre is warm, and very child friendly, with a small kids’ area nextto the café, where the toys and books kept our little one entertained for quitesome time in between a star gazing walk and looking at Jupiter through various people’stelescopes.

It's beginning to come to life now
This week, I have started to add colour to my Tenby harbourpainting, beginning as usual with the sky. I always try to work top to bottom and left to right, to avoidsmudging.  I’ve made the sky bluer thanon the photo, and the buildings seem to be coming out a bit brighter, but theymay become less so when they have the darker harbour wall in front of them.  I need to find my Naples Yellow, last used onthe Welsh sunset painting, to do the sand.


At art group, there was talk of a trip out somewhere forpainting on location, and John suggested the Idle Valley Nature Reserve.  His wife had been there and he commented thatit had a good tea shop, which seemed to be a selling point for Gill.  Some years ago, I used to go horse ridingthere when it was a quarry, and parts of it are still used for this purpose.  This link gives more details on the nature reserve:http://www.nottinghamshirewildlife.org/news/item/idle-valley-in-pictures
Elizabeth has completed her painting of Mexican hatchling turtles making their way to the sea. It is a special memento for her to remember her holiday by, but was a difficult subject to paint, particularly for trying to convey a sense of depth, there being nothing much in the foreground. Her next painting will be from a photo I’ve given her of some mountains with flowering foliage in front, which will hopefully be better from the depth/perspective point of view. Karen was working on a large montage of three tigers, a painting she had put on one side for some time since she began it, and had now brought out again. Gill was painting an owl and Kevin a close up of a human eye. Barbara had chosen a particularly difficult subject – some rocky land interspersed with greenery, while Maggie continued with her nymphs.
Montage of tiny images of some of the group's work
I have been putting together a slide show of thegroup’s work, for use at our Easter exhibition. For the past 2-3 years, we’ve had a continuous show on a laptop computer,but last time someone suggested putting the name of each painting on it.  I’ve therefore done this for 219 paintingsfrom several members, adding their initials to each one.  I’d originally planned to create a video ofthe paintings with soundtrack, but it seems a slideshow is much quicker andeasier to do.  We will also be able touse a stereo system when we hire the room so there’s no need for a soundtrack.  Now, if someone wants to buy a painting afterseeing it on the slide show, they will be able to identify it more easily.

The scene is set - even our dining room table was a work of art
Christmas was busy this year, with a big family gathering at our house, and all the usual indulgences. To help walk it off, we went for a stroll around Creswell Crag. This is an ancient limestone gorge, with caves that were inhabited thousands of years ago. The visitor centre was closed but the Crag itself has a public footpath and we were able to take a walk around it. It is a place that has often been depicted in paintings, and indeed has some cave paintings from ancient times. These are a long way inside the caves and cannot be viewed from the outside. I’ve been on a cave tour, when Church Hole Cave was open for us to view the carvings of animals, like a primitive art gallery. This website gives more information and photos of the artwork. http://www.stone-circles.org.uk/stone/creswellcrags.htm

I have kept the pencilwork light, so apologies if it is difficult to see
With Christmas and New Year over for another year, I wasback at art group last weekend, where I began my Tenby harbour painting.  I have been trying to make the pencil drawingas accurate a reflection of the photograph as I can, to give the best possiblebasis for painting on top.  It doesn’tlook much yet, but expect it to come to life when colour is added.  I have kept the pencilwork light so that it won't show through the paint.

At art group, we all chatted about how we’d spent Christmas,what presents we’d had and whether well received or not.  It felt good to get out of the house again,and to have a conversation with people outside of the family.  John was working on a painting of a terrier,and Karen on one of some ducks in water against a dark background.  Sue was doing a painting of cottages in theHunstanton area, while Maggie was working on more fantasy elf-type figures.

I’ve now added my recent Tree of Life to my selling site,link at top of page.   The price is £35, whichincludes p&p to anywhere in the UK mainland (I can also export).

Publishing Opportunity

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
GRATITUDE PRAYERS:
Prayers, Poems, and Prose for Everyday Thankfulness
Submissions close Friday, February 3, 2012
The purpose of GRATITUDE PRAYERS is to encourage individuals to appreciate the blessings in their lives and to cultivate an attitude of everyday thankfulness. Taking time to reflect on what’s good will help readers refocus their minds, which will increase one’s personal happiness.
Chapters have not yet been determined. The book will be packaged like Comfort Prayers and Serenity Prayers. In general, a maximum of 15 lines is best for each piece as this is the amount of text that will fit on one book page. If your selection will not work within 15 lines, you can submit a maximum of 30 lines (the equivalent of two book pages). However, I can only accept a few of the longer pieces so it may limit your chances of having a longer piece accepted. For prose pieces, a maximum of 130 words will fit on one book page. All prayers should be interfaith.
The final manuscript for GRATITUDE PRAYERS is due February 29 and reading the submissions for GRATITUDE PRAYERS is a top priority. Andrews McMeel Publishing hopes to publish the book Fall 2012, but it may be delayed until Spring 2013. If you have submitted for any of my other projects, please note that I'm far behind on reading submissions. I don't have an assistant, so it's a challenge to keep up with everything. Thanks for your continued patience.
The compensation for one-time rights is one complimentary copy of the book. Reprints are okay. The advance for GRATITUDE PRAYERS was quite small, so regretfully I'm not able to pay an additional monetary amount. As most of you know, publishing has changed drastically with fewer outlets for books. Even though e-publishing is generally successful for a lot of writers, the format isn't popular for gift books such as mine. However, I will do everything I can to find additional recognition for contributors. My books receive major publicity and have been featured in major magazines and newspapers such as USA Today, Family Circle, and Woman's Day as well as a "Dear Abby" column. Many of my contributors have been contacted by card companies to have their work featured on a card or plaque as a result of exposure in one of my anthologies.
Mail submissions to June Cotner, P.O. Box 2765, Poulsbo, WA 98370. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) with sufficient return postage and mark “GRATITUDE PRAYERS” on the lower left-hand corner of your envelope. Please put all of your contact info on each submission. All submissions must be postmarked by February 3, 2012.
It takes me much longer to read and respond to submissions sent via email, so I much prefer snail mail submissions. If you live outside the U.S., you are welcome to email me no more than three submissions to june@junecotner.com. Please use GRATITUDE + as your subject line and include all of your contact info on each submission.

Wedding Jewelry Preparing | Bridal

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa 0 comments
The jewelry that you use for your wedding make you sparkle and shine. Ensure that shown in their best advantage to get each ball in good shape before the big day arrives. These tips will help you prepare for your wedding jewelry.

On the wedding day, the whole world to admire his diamond ring. Every bride should have her engagement ring professionally cleaned one or two days before the ceremony so that it shines. You might think that your ring and it is bright enough, but just wait until you see steam fresh - it will look fabulous as she made the day of her first boyfriend have shown you in the small velvet box. Nothing will cut the brilliance of a diamond worse than lotion, so if you have a manicure after cleaning, remove the ring. And when you give in, do not touch the stone with your fingers, making it unclear.

If you use glass and jewelry to fabulous silver anniversary, you want to make sure it shines to its best advantage. Gently wipe the wedding jewelry of glass with a soft damp cloth to remove dust or fingerprints. Then run a special parts cleaning cloth money to give a beautiful shine. To do this, before you get a manicure for the wedding, and you can end up with dirty fingernails! Wedding jewelry that is made of sterling silver without gemstones may be soaked in a special silver cleaner if it has been tarnished. Silver bath can ruin a lot of jewelry, especially pearls, so use it for jewelry, which is money.

Pearls are the ultimate symbol of elegance bridal, they are also quite fragile, so be sure to baby them. It can be cleaned with a soft dry cloth, if necessary, but that's all. The best way to ensure that the beads are in great shape for your wedding is to prevent contamination in the first place. Always put pearls wedding jewelry after the hair and makeup are done. Hairspray is the sworn enemy of pearls as its luster Sun. Spritz the perfume before putting on the marriage of pearls for the same reason. Never get the silk thread of a chain of pearls moist, as they may be subject to stretch and break.

If your friend intends to use wedding decorations, be sure to make sure that your accessories look as good as yours. Cufflinks silver can be polished with a soft money to get a new luster. If they are pure sterling silver and the need for more light, the twins can also be soaked in a cleaning money. Chances are that your wedding ring is in perfect condition, but check to see if they could benefit from a fresh polish jeweler. If your boyfriend has expressed interest in a ring matte finish instead of the traditional Polish high, ask the jeweler with a brush on the wheel to make it mate. It only takes a minute to do and give the group a modern look.

As they say, little things mean a lot. When you have spent months perfecting their game wedding for your wedding, it only makes sense to take the time to make sure that your accessories look as good. With your wedding jewelry in perfect condition, you are ready to glow from head to toe on her big day.
