I’ve mentioned the Artivive app before – it’s an app that calls up video hosted on their site and linked to a specific image. For now, it’s mostly used in galleries where lighting and connectivity are generally good. I used it for my contribution to our lane’s Advent Window fundraiser (for the local school) whereby one window a night is ‘unveiled’ and then stays lit for the rest of Christmas, which meant viewing in the dark from the garden in a village where mobile signals aren’t always great. It was a big test and it passed! Artivive has a torch … Continue reading Artivive in the wild!
I’ve been obsessing somewhat with facial features on the grounds that I absolutely can’t graduate this course without being able to render a decent eye or ear, or particularly a nose which never seems to fit the face properly when … Continue reading Noses begone!

After Drawing Skills1 came home to roost a day or so ago, Practice of Painting and Understanding Painting Media have also done a flit and been rehomed here. So now there’s a flock of replicated pages and headings perched up … Continue reading More blog migrations
If this blog suddenly looks larger, bigger, rounder, and more populated with stuff, it’s because I have imported my three Level 1 (HE4) OCA blogs now that they’re safely in the bag at a progressive 56% (Drawing Skills 1), 61% … Continue reading Blog supernova!
We knew that though, didn’t we? Get yourself ‘adopted’ by a gallery or a collector and your work will sky rocket in price. You might have to be dead though, which would at least mean you weren’t kept on a … Continue reading “The Art Market is a Scam”

Could I have chosen a more difficult image? Probably not; wrinkled, crumpled faces give room for manoeuvre but flawless beauty is unforgiving. But I don’t much like being beaten, and anyway, what am I… Continue reading Revisiting THAT portrait: nose, eyes, mouth and teeth
