Drawings in Prep for my next set of Portrait Paintings

October 19, 2017Swirls of grief continue, sometimes an undertow, other times gliding on the surface. Managed to get into a sketch today.

My dearly loved brother, Raymond, passed away last week

My beautiful brother Raymond passed away last week, on Wednesday August 30th, unexpectedly.

Study for a Painting of Steve-Paul Simms

Study 1 for a Painting of Steve-Paul Simms, 2017, ©Brenda Clews, inks, paint, pastel, 8"x10", Strathmore drawing paper, 80lb, acid free.Been far too long since I sketched - perhaps half or a whole year? So... out of practice. This - a bit rough, the drawing too small for the size of the pastels. Sharing anyway. A study for a possible painting.

It began at a most wonderful gallery at Queen and Parliament, Urban Gallery, where I had a solo art show in 2014. Calvin Hambrook, the director of the gallery,
