Hamilton Artist Update 18 – 24 HRS delay

My weekly review of art and art related activities is being delayed by 24 hours so that I can report on the results of the Heritage Permit Review Subcommittee meeting.  Late Tuesday afternoon (between 5-7 pm) at Hamilton City Hall, Room 264; the Sub-committee will be deciding the fate of the Hermitage Ruins in Ancaster, Ontario.

I should have my posting up by 10 or 11 pm Tuesday, May 27th, 2014.  For immediate results, please check my twitter posting.  I will tweet as soon as I know the results.  You can follow me at @erskinec

Drawing at the Hermitage – Part 2

After a winter of working inside my studio, I just love getting outdoors and drawing or painting from life.  Time pressures and the changing weather conditions creates a certain amount of tension – almost like a game show.  Will he get it done in time?  How bad will the results be?

The other advantage of drawing on location is the people.  I am always surprised by the number of people who will stop and look at your art.  The feedback is always positive, and for someone who works in the isolation of the studio, this is very rewarding.

While it doesn’t show much, here is part two of my efforts to capture the soon to be reduced Hermitage Ruins in Ancaster, Ontario.
