Creativity In Lockdown

Dave Pentin

‘With the beautiful sunny weather we realised that the single sun lounger was not enough to accommodate my wife, myself and two grown up sons (returned home for lockdown) so my boys and I repurposed some old decking and lumber that was lying in the garden and decided we could make some robust garden furniture. The result has proved a real focus for sun worshiping, lunches, aperos, BBQs and the odd sneaky cigarette ever since!’

‘I have taken this opportunity to take out my oil paints once again and have a go at some portrait painting along with Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Week. This streaming event has seen thousands of artists around the world simultaneously painting a celebrity sitter for 4 hours every Sunday during lockdown. It has been a fascinating community gathering with work being shared on Instagram via the #mypaotw tag. It has been great fun and a good distraction from the confines of lockdown.’
