Fig 1. Frankie on new paper
I like trying out new paper. At the moment I like using a very smooth ivory 240-300gsm Bockingford watercolour paper; off-white Somerset printing paper is also surprisingly good to draw on although it is very soft and doesn’t suit hard pencil marks. I recently found Moleskine paper takes pencil beautifully and on a quest for a good smooth paper realised that some Ivory Rymans card that I bought for my (now deceased) printer works in a similar way, giving very crisp lines and allowing for really subtle pencil work. I tried graphite powder on it today with mixed success. I heard that Lawrence Art Shop has some imitation Japanese Velum paper, so it’ll be off to the distant reaches of far-Hove for me…
This weekend will be that last chance to see our Open House ‘Fugitive Ink’ and the new drawings that I have up there, for more information see my earlier post on the House.
This weekend will also see the auction of three pieces of my work (pictured below) at the 5th annual auction of Contemporary Art by Self Representing Artists in Sussex. The brain child of owner of the auction house and celebrated supporter of Sussex Art Nick Toovey the auction has been preceded by an exhibition in Horsham and is possibly one of the best platforms for self representing artists to sell their work in Sussex, spreading the cost of exhibiting between buyer, artist and auction house in a much more balanced way than traditional galleries manage and helping to both empower the artists whilst exposing potential buyers to a broad spectrum of original work. Full details can be found by clicking on the images below.

Two years in Brighton, now there’s a funny thought. So what does May have
in store this year? Well for a start we have the KUTAC exhibtion, a group

Friese-Greene Gallery on Middle street in Brighton. It runs for just 10 days
