I happened across this exhibition at The Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre.
How loudly can I shout about it?
The winners of last years BP Portrait Award, plus a large number of other portraits are in the Gallery at the library (discovery centre) in Winchester. The competition is the most prestigious portrait competition in the world. There are portraits from all over the globe.
The winning entry, by London based Miriam Escofert, is ‘An Angel at my Table’. This was selected from 2,667 entries from 88 countries.

Spring has sprung, the grass is ris...
… mowing has started, and other gardening tasks are planned. I love this time of year. I know lots of you like to be busy outside too. However, there are the occasional meteorological knock back. Thursday 4th April is the first drawing day of the spring classes and rain is forecast (https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2633858).
So, ignore the garden and hide out with us in Bransbury.

Suitable for all abilities.
In this class you will be looking at the rhythm and pattern of movement. Music combined with rhythm and movement will encourage you to draw with varied marks and strokes. You will capture the model’s movement and tempo, whether explosive, calm, or repetitive.
You will do a series of exercises to show you different ways of interpreting the moving body. The drawings become something very different to photographs or film, possibly an expression of time and rhythm.
This is exciting drawing to undertake and exciting drawings to see.
