This week was Project Ability artist Edward Henry‘s last week as Artist in Residence at Platform, Easterhouse. Over the past six weeks, Edward has been working from a studio set up at Platform one day a week, developing a body of new work with the support of artist Scott Lang. Each week, Scott has been updating us on Edward’s progress.
“This week Edward made several sketches of the rooms we have been using during our time at Platform. He also made some sketches of the exterior of the building.
Edward then finished off his painting of one of the entrances by painting in figures. He used a previous sketch of some beauty therapy students as the basis for two of the figures. He added another couple of figures which are based on lecturers that he knows from the Glasgow Kelvin College campus next to Platform.
Once the painting was finished, Edward dried it with a hairdryer before applying two coats of varnish to give it a nice finish.”
Thank you very much Edward and Scott!
