Here are a couple of art competitions to help you through those boring self-quarantine times. Nothing like a bit of isolation to spur you on with your art!

I had planned to enter the the ‘Changing Places’ exhibition in May in the Bridgwater Arts Centre. It was to be a twinned event with Priverno in Italy. The submission to be what your town means to you. Clearly the event will now have to be cancelled but that is no reason not to carry on painting. Well, I walked all over Bridgwater and came and settled on this view in Parrot Way, sketched out below. It includes the old hospital on the right and the town bridge with buildings behind in the distant left and the river. I feel that the history of Bridgwater is what makes this town special. Over the next days/weeks or maybe months I will post my progress in trying to capture this part of Bridgwater. Tips and comments welcome. Ken Church

After a week of doing all those odd jobs around the home I was free to finally get around to submitting my OnLine Challenge piece. This time I tried digital art. Using my iPad its a bit like drawing on glass, not easy! I started traditionally, sketching out the picture on paper. I then attached my sketch to a tablet which traces movement digitally direct onto my iPad. Tracing over my sketch I ended up with the same sketch as a digital image. I used the painting app ‘Digital Pro’ to paint over the trace. I am not happy with the result but I think if I keep practicing it will get better. KEN
