Edit: I give the website for the Bellamys incorrectly in the podcast – their website is bellamysgallery.com
My wife and I have been on holiday in New Zealand for the last three weeks, which was amazing. The only downside, I thought, was that I wouldn’t have a chance to add anything to lovelifedrawing for ages. Fortunately we came across the Bellamy Gallery in Dunedin. In this gallery lives the work of the multi-talented Bellamy family.
Pauline Bellamy has worked as a graphic artist and became known for her landscape paintings and has now moved into figurative artwork. She teaches a class on life drawing in her community. Luckily for us, she agreed to be interviewed for a podcast. However, recording it in the gallery meant that some background noise crept in halfway through – apologies for that!
Here’s an example of one of her figure drawings:
These are some of her etchings of orchestra performers, in her studio:
And an awesome etching of some penguins!
You can see more of her landscape paintings here.
