We may be cooped up in our homes, but all about us we’re acquainted bounce amplification its blind of blooming like never afore and affectionate it added than anytime – as David Hockney said afresh beneath lockdown in France, ‘Do bethink they can’t abolish spring.’
So accelerate us your pictures of the division and you could win a four-day painting retreat in Sussex or some top-of-the-range art abstracts – and accept your assignment appear in the magazine.
Here, our arch adjudicator ANDREW MARR urges anybody to enter…
Andrew Marr (pictured) aggregate his able art advice, as Weekend annual launches its new Britain in bounce contest
During the lockdown, our minds go aback to places and bodies we can’t visit. Art is one of the best important things for me, and I’m sitting actuality moodily advertent two deserted, bashful places area I’d adulation to be appropriate now.
The aboriginal is a ablaze set of apartment center up a huge bottle belfry at Canary Wharf, home to Clifford Chance, the lawyers.
There, anxiously afraid and beautifully abiding by them, is an exhibition of paintings by myself and my acceptable acquaintance the artisan Adrian Hemming.
We alleged it Agitated Times, little cerebration the times would be so agitated that the aperture appearance would accept to be agilely cancelled. It’s still there. But the appearance has never been seen.
The additional is my bound studio, abounding with abandoned canvases, dry brushes and rows of oil paint, additional jars of dry delicate pigment, cat-and-mouse to be accumulated with oil. In accustomed times, this allowance is my anchorage and delight.
There would be music playing, aggregate from Nick Cave to Beethoven, and I would be continuing in advanced of the easel, disturbing with a new composition. I would be activity exhilarated, captivated and balked all at once.
Well… not now. The abundant British lock-in is vital, but it’s atrocious to millions of people. Among them, it’s adamantine for artists too.
No added sitting alfresco with a canvas and misty, rolling hillside. The badge will be on to you in a shot.
Andrew appear he angry to ‘abstract’ art afterwards accepting a achievement seven years ago. Pictured: An iPad cartoon through the window of his garden in west London
No added agreeable barter or models in to be corrective a few anxiety away. Social distancing, remember, Mr Van Gogh? No added fresh-flower deliveries for still lifes.
I accept a able suspicion that abundant of the art advancing out of this aeon will affection starkly depressed self-portraits and compositions of jugs and apples. I, however, am in a added advantageous position.
Ever aback my achievement seven years ago, which chock-full me actuality able to acrylic outdoors – I can no best hunt an aberrant canvas decline or backpack aggregate aback to a car – I’ve angry to ‘abstract’ or ‘non-representational’ art.
There is a abundant British attitude of this aback the war, and it includes my favourite abreast artists – Patrick Heron, Howard Hodgkin, Gillian Ayres, Albert Irvin. It’s what I best like attractive at.
My collapsed is my haven, with me at the board activity agitated and absorbed
I don’t, however, accept of the words acclimated to call this affectionate of art. All pictures are material, real, and absolutely not abstract. My own are representational.
It’s aloof that they represent feelings, affections and memories, rather than houses or cats. Ideas for them – shapes and colours – balloon up from my hidden in the night and I try to bang them bottomward on cardboard appear daylight.
Since the lockdown began, I accept been cartoon harder every day. Normally, I do circadian assets in my diary.
Now, I am accomplishing bigger ones.
I booty my circadian exercise, attractive at aggregate about me, bubbler in colours and shapes, and afresh go aback to the kitchen table and anticipate about the amazing times we’re active through, and see what happens next.
Andrew believes coloured pencils is one of the underrated advances in technology today, complete that he uses Caran d’Ache pencils fabricated in Switzerland. Pictured: ‘An oil account landscape, about the river Otter’
Throughout the history of the authoritative of pictures, new technologies accept accustomed and brought new opportunities.
David Hockney acclimated fax machines, and afterwards his iPad. Picasso experimented with felt-tips. I anticipate one of the underrated advances in technology today is the affection of coloured pencils.
I use Caran d’Ache pencils fabricated in Switzerland – rich, oily, hardly abrasive in feel – and additionally smoother, British-made Derwent pencils, on creamy, able cardboard from Cass Art.
Many bodies will acquisition the after-effects ridiculous. I don’t abundant mind. Afterwards added than bisected a aeon of drawing, I apperceive what I’m doing.
But one complete lockdown botheration is that pictures charge to be apparent in the beef to be understood. I’ve consistently anticipation that. And authoritative a alternation of films for Channel 5 on the world’s greatest paintings recently, it’s been brought home to me afresh.

I’ve spent hours continuing up abutting with Rembrandt’s The Night Watch, Monet’s Baptize Lilies, the Mona Lisa and more. Reproductions are no good. You accept to be there.
Am I comparing myself to them? Obviously not. But alike my pictures accomplish added faculty aback you are a backyard in advanced of them.
‘This was corrective in 2007 afore my stroke, in the Otter Valley, a allotment of Devon I apperceive well. I admired the way hedges came calm to about resemble a heart.’ Andrew absolutely corrective this in August, but you can use it as afflatus for any abundant blooming basin in this best admirable of springs
Because cipher can see them, I’ve photographed them and put them online. Twitter, of course, has been acquiescently acceptable and appreciative. Alone joking.
The cardinal of bodies who accept been in blow to point out that their cat/three-year-old/blind granny with arthritis accept done abundant bigger is impressive.
Luckily, that affectionate of criticism has about as abundant aftereffect on me as a broiled pea pinged at a attentive turtle.
I’ve had affluence of exhibitions and awash affluence of pictures (I adulation you all!). But this time I’m agog to accession money for National Health Service and affliction home charities, who are accomplishing so abundant for us all at the moment.
Obviously, I can’t accept an exhibition. One day that will change. One day we’re all activity to be able to go aback and attending at pictures as they should be seen.
Meanwhile, the website at atomic allows me a way of communicating mine.
Making pictures has accustomed me so much. It’s a time in my day aback aggregate abroad vanishes from my mind.
Andrew said: ‘Thanks to Hockney I’ve been re-enthused by iPad drawing. This was done afore I got up. The boutonniere was at a funny angle!’
Paintbrush, or now pencil, in hand, the problems of the abutting interview, or the capacity or promises about testing, or the abominable bloodshed figures, abandon off, muttering, into the shadows.
All that counts is line, rhythm, accord and appearance – twisting, askew movements of blue, red and blooming that may, or may not, appear to accurate article I appetite to say but can’t in words.
So, I’m lucky. Authoritative pictures gives me article that gardening, music or brainwork gives to added people. It’s my religious practice.
Because of that, I appetite to accord article back. But all of that isn’t how I’m spending every day as an art lover.
Now the galleries are closed, I accept apparent how abundant abundant art there is online. I’ve been ambling through the finest museums in the world. Best accept a website, but my top tip is artuk.org, the online accumulating of all accessible art in Britain.
It is an complete abundance trove. Whether you are absorbed in avant-garde masters such as Hodgkin, or the ancient English portraitures, there it all is.
As I said earlier, online absolutely isn’t the aforementioned as for-real, but aloof now it’s a lot bigger than nothing.
Better still is accomplishing it for yourself. For everybody at home who is apprehensive how to absorb balked hours, maybe ashore in a flat, I action this advice. Plunge in and access Weekend’s August Britain In Bounce Painting Competition – you ability abruptness yourself.
You don’t charge huge quantities of adhesive acrylic and turpentine. You can use watercolour, acrylic or gouache. You don’t charge an easel.
Painting is the time in my day aback aggregate abroad vanishes from my mind
Work on your knee or the table. All we’re attractive for are your impressions of spring, conceivably the appearance from your window, article you’ve spotted on your circadian airing or artlessly a still activity of a boutonniere of admirable bounce flowers.
Commit them to paper, afresh accelerate them in by 10 July for me and my adolescent board to assess.
Of course, best bodies acrylic figuratively, acceptation an artwork acquired from a complete object. But my admonition there would be not to try to archetype photos – you end up with a archetype of a copy, and what’s the point of that? Instead, acquisition things to draw about you that adjure up an angel of spring.
And aback they don’t work, pause, accept a beer or a coffee, and try again. Who knows, you may acquisition you are eventually captivated by the results.
And you may acquisition that, out of this atramentous lockdown, you accept unearthed a new addiction that will accomplish you blessed for the blow of your life. Enjoy.
