Sold a drawing!

Happy days! last year I did a coloured pencil portrait of another member of Artforums.co.uk as part of a portrait challence that used to run on there....and she's just bought it from me! well, we arranged a swap, the drawing for some new art materials for me. Well chuffed!

She's Julie Broom, an artist in Scotland who's been very supportive to me in my attempt to get back into drawing & painting, Check out her blog: http://juliebroom.wordpress.com/2010/05/18/last-blast-at-the-make-room/

  1. Thanks Ben. I'm really looking forward to seeing the drawing 'in real life' so to speak. You've captured my typical expression (half a look of concern and half of concentration!) brilliantly.

  2. Thank you again for buying it, I hope I'll sell more in the future and if I do I'll always remember this one...the first!

  4. Thank you, I did this a while back, really must throttle back and do a bit more simple, disciplined stuff like this again, been going a bit mad with my pastels recently.

  5. Congratulations, very exciting! You captured a woman, Julie Broom, about to make a decision.

  6. Ben, I was looking through your work and as this portrait came into view I said to myself I know that face. I used to go on that art forum and remember Julie from there. I hope that gives you a buzz to know that I recognised her before reading any of the write up. Well done!
