One Sunday at Tulloch ...




before i was dready, when i was a yute, ricky and i used to come to this fording, on a farm round the corner, and swim and look for freshwater shrimps and play the games small bwoys play ...

when i was a bigger yute i used to come here and near here and cut grass for auntie's horses.

and when i was a grown bwoy, and i was lucky, i got to come here and meet up with peoples on a sunday and we'd drink and eat and chat and hang with our toes in the water and our head in the clouds.
not enough times i might add ... 'cause it's a cool cool place and cool cool people, whom i love, meet there to hang.

now my children go there.

and so working on this dready ... and it ain't finished yet as of this iteration ... has been a great deal of pleasure.

live, love, life

Linda vista ... dready version of a view in Palma




i'm embarking on a dready art project that i like to think of as 'what i did in my summer holidays' ...

at school you used to get assignments to write about what you did in/on your holidays, and having just come back from a trip i decided to incorporate some of the things that we saw and did into a piece of art or several pieces of art ...

each place had a particular colour as well as a feeling or a vibe, yu know, as well as the whole trip having at its core something holistically special.

this one isn't really the project I have in mind, but an ancillary thingy thing  and is all about the view from the place we stayed in Palma (de Mallorca) ... or at least my version of the view, dready's version of the view ...

and with this 'what i did on my summer holidays' starts ...

bon voyage, nuh!

totally nude ...




nudes are a whole genre of art in themselves and a challenging aspect of any drawing ... so ya know, i got 'drawn' to dem like anyone else ...

the trick was, is finding the way to do a nude and still have the simplicity of dreadyness in it, because the body is complex and full of lines ...



this first nude is good example - 'little cayman nude' she's called - the idea of the hammock hanging in air, the simple blocks of colour, the two dimensionality leaves no doubt that dready is there in the details ...

the second nude, 'blue room' nude, which I've just been working on, kinda pushes the boundaries of what is dreadyness, she and the art itself have more 'stuff' going on - and maybe she pushes it too far ... but, to take the eroticism completely out of it, in reality she's actually made up of very few 'bits', only about 15 ... so I still like her!


peace and love ...
