Experiencing the natural world through art
Rapper Professor Green - Stephen Manderson. Carolyn Lamb. Pencil. 14 Jun 2020. Stephen was being painted live online by Tom Mead and viewers could watch them chatting and Tom's portrait evolve, plus do one's own version. This is my sketch from my first Facebook Live portrait painting session via Sky TV's Portrait Artist of the Week show. There is also a tiny sketch of Tai-Shan Schierenberg when he appeared on screen for a few moments.
This weeks Stuck at Home challenge was to take a Classical Greek, Roman or Egyptian statue and set it in time and place. So using Classical Sculpture by George Hanfmann, London,1967 I found two Greek bronzes which could be fitted together as dancers at an outdoor disco. The background is from Monodendri beach, Paxos. Praying Boy, Greece, c 300 B.C. Staatcliches Museum, Berlin and Fleeing Girl, 350.B.C. Museo Archaeologico, Florence.
