When The Artist and I lived and worked in Plymouth, we were friendly with a couple who lived in converted old water mill.
Set in the Devon countryside it was solid, ancient and rambling, with high ceilings and a huge, homely kitchen. We spent many a happy evening together, enjoying food, wine and great company. I even threw my hen party there ~ an ‘American Supper’ style celebration and girlie sleepover. It was a magical evening, much more my style than trawling round night clubs in bridal fancy dress!
As they were renting the place, our friends knew that they would move on. But they wished to have a permanent momento, so they commissioned The Artist to draw this picture:
VOS #17 THE MILL HOUSE
Rendered in pen and ink, this was a tricky subject. The winding lane, running alongside it, made it difficult to obtain an wide view. So Martin had to reference it from different angles and piece it together ~ taking the plaque from the gate post and enlarging it, bottom left. His clients were delighted!
Find the Logo
As this is retrospective, there are no logos on this image. He did sign it with his name, though ~ can you spot that?
Last week in The Awakening there is one logo. It can be found in the centre of the top skull, on the right of the composite picture. Did you find it?
