A decorative woodturned plate by Robin Goodman. The design features three horn shaped pieces swirling out from the centre. One piece is reddish brown, one is made from blond wood and the third has dark rings that create a 3D ribbed effect, even though the plate surface is smooth and flat.


Artistic woodturning combines traditional carpentry skills with creativity and imagination to produce items that are useful, decorative and not always round.

Drawings of three male figures placed in a row, one is bent touching the floor, the next is sitting on the floor with his hanmds behind his back and the third is reclining sideways accross the floor, They are loose yet anatomical in style - drawn with drawing pen and black ink line. Each figure has a pale pink watercolour swoosh behind it suggesting the basic movement of the pose. The work is painted on white art paper.

Life Drawing

When we imagine an art class, we often think of a life drawing session. Why are these so important for learning to draw?

this painting is made up of a series of swirling graphic gestural paint marks. Playful, slightle transparent primary coloured graphic shapes and textures layered accross each other. This is a small painting so in this scan every mark is amplified. Strong gestural swirls of black hold the image together in a revolving unity. By local artist Laurel Smart.
