Here's a painting I did this week.

Collage and acrylics.


A game of chess.

Now to be careful not to press the backspace!!

Hi Tyree! I love your little man on the bird! Colorful, whimsical fairyland image! It would make a lovely children's story!

We are getting colder weather now! Brrr!

Nice chess image, June. In the new year I'll return to experimenting with acrylics. For the moment, a study after Michelangelo, in colored pencil (297 x 210 mm, which around here is A4 size):


As usual the camera washed out the colors a bit. I noticed something curious about photographing colored pencil drawings though - unlike with most other media, it works best to photograph them in bright, direct sunlight.

Beautiful study of Michelangelo! I love the colours! I have difficulties with scanning and with photographing my work too! Its often difficult to get true likeness!
