New Blogsite

As this project draws to an end, so also will this blogsite. I am pleased that I have this comprehensive documentary of my journey over the past 10-months. But fear not, I have started another blog to document what happens from here at: www.nataliedowseart.blogspot.com

On a bench in Berlin



This is one of Philip Turner's paintings (first year student). You can see his self-portrait at the side.

who is the person in the painting?
You seem to have a lot of very talented painters in Derby

sApparently its herself looking decidedly iffy after a night out in Berlin, a fair rendition of a down and out artist.

Dear Anonymous No. 2,
It is a painting of me but I was just having a nice little rest for 5 minutes after a whole night of traveling and a whole day of site seeing. Just to set the record straight!

Must have been a real quick painter , a 5minute rest? Looks a bit more permanent to me and we heard quite a bit of pub, not site, seeing

Or... it may be a painting of a quick photo of an up and coming artist having a five minute rest after a whole night of traveling and a whole day of sightseeing.

is down and out artist one step down from local artist ?

This first year mature student's painting shows great potential .. however, there is the awkward position of the hands, which appear reversed and slightly out of proportion .. could be more detail, as well as depth in the facial features, and this gives the impression that it is unfinished .. Mr Turner's self portrait visible behind the painting of Ms Dowse shows an interesting use of perspective .. will be interesting to see how the artist progresses technically over the next couple years. ..

Ive just opened up on this web site ,didnt realise Natalie was going to publish a photo of this painting ,particularly as the hands were in the process of being redone. now complete! There is to be no further detail in the face ,im quite happy with it plus it always come down to the tricky decision when to stop! come and see me in 2 years KW, my worry is if I will progress

Hi Phil,

Thank you for your response. I should have said that the painting was incomplete. Let me know if you would like me to take another picture of the finished painting and publish it again. Like I said I too would love to see what you are doing in two years' time.
