Louise Lawton BA (Hons)

Louise Lawton - Whiteboard Portrait II
A new exhibition of artwork by Louise Lawton BA (Hons) continues at Clapham Art Gallery, London, UK, until 29 July. I mention this because it's Wimbledon fortnight and young Louise is a graduate of the Wimbledon School of Art. I reckon her tutor must have been Rod Laver, because most of her stuff looks like sepia photos taken from a helicopter of groups of city-dwellers lost in the bleakest parts of the Aussie Outback. They're actually charcoal drawings on gesso. Maybe computer images don't do them justice; I find them dull and boring, but it seems the punters are flocking to buy them.

Meh....They dont' do anything for me.

I like the idea of charcoal on gesso though!

Some of the old masters used red chalk for their sketches. That's got a really nice tone to it, especially when it's figurative art by a master such as Raphael. One of the best exhibitions I ever visited was all red chalk sketches. Wow!
