Doodle Dips

See hundreds of Jim’s delicate coloured pencil portraits hung and strung across the Project Ability gallery.

Made on recycled ready meal packaging, these studies offer a glimpse into what sustained Feeney over consecutive lockdowns: the meals he ate, and the portraits he pencilled.

We all looked for ways to keep our passions alive during the dark days of lockdown, and Feeney did that through the creation of these artworks, perfecting coloured pencil portraiture.

We will showcase 218 of Jim Feeney’s portraits in the Project Ability gallery, giving audiences the chance to inspect the hundreds of different expressions and emotions represented in theses studies.  It is a wonder to imagine the artist, day after day during lockdown, delicately crafting each portrait, both from imagination and memory.
