Roger Dellar Artist in Lockdown

By Mary-Anne Bartlett on 7th May 2020

Being studio-bound is not such a bad thing!  I am exploring my surroundings near my house in Surrey, challenging myself with unfamiliar subjects. I painted by wheelbarrow the other day.  I’d been gardening and sat down for a coffee with Lyn and thought ah, that would make a nice picture.  I’m catching up with unfinished projects ,such as six 40×30 pieces for a gallery.  I”m also writing articles for Artists and Illustrators magazine.

A new addition is requests for on-line teaching and so I’m setting up zoom classes with my existing students.  It’s good fun. Keep safe!

We spotted that Roger’s pastel painting of the Woodbridge Violin shop appeared in the current edition of Artists and Illustrators – painted while he was here running an Art Safari workshop. I wonder if Russel has seen it?
