I don't feel like I have done much this year.
Here is the piece I am happiest with.
Charcoal on paper.

Saint Bernard ...after Strozzi
2 inch x 2.5 inch
Acrylics (winsor & newton) on canvas textured paper
1/12th scale for a dolls house.
I really enjoyed this piece in miniature.

Anita I love that chair! The drawing is so mystical! :thumbsup:
Dan, fantastic minature of Saint Bernard :thumbsup:
Here's one I just did the first of the month from a black and white photograph.
It's sort of a mini:

Another mini - this is super Nickel! How did you get such looseness in such a small piece? I tend to get more and more detailed the smaller the piece.

One of my lemur oil paintings. 16 by 20 ins (40 by 50 cms approx).
I used the classical grisaille technique.:wave:

:thumbsup: Dan and Nickel, those teeny-tinies are marvellous. How do you do them so small and so good!!
:thumbsup: Present, I agree with Nickel, your charcoal drawing is so mysterious in feeling.

June your lemurs are my favorite paintings of yours!
I love the richness in this one :thumbsup:

Nice technique adds an alluring quality to look a little closer! :thumbsup:

All of my work is so outstanding it is impossible to select "the best." The example here is here only because it is fresh in my mind. I gave it away and it now hangs framed under glass in Austin, Tex.
You see, I am now in the process of divesting myself of all worldly goods, to spend the rest of my days in a Buddist Monastary in Nepal.

Without a doubt, here is the one I prefer from my paintings of 2007, using a classical technique.
Great paintings in the thread so far!
(St-Luke, I hope they have an internet connection out there, then you'll still be able to post your paintings!!!! )
I wish everyone a wonderful painting new year!

Hi everyone! I'm new here and very impressed about all the amazing paintings I've seen here today. This is my favourite painting that I made this year. I made it during my exams. It's very simple and I made it in less than an hour, but nevertheless I fell in love with it. I hope you like it too. It's chinese ink and watercolours.

I wasn't sure whether posting among my latest works the drawing "Bill's Eye" ( a portrait detail of my daughter's horse - Cutter Bills Borrego) or the oil painting on a wooden panel of Bellagio (lake Como) seen from Griante - Cadenabbia ... so I hope it doesn't mind if I post both of them: http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Jan-2008/77963-bilseyemmm.jpg
this is a soft pastel drawing on wrapping paper
the following one is the oil painting :http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Jan-2008/77963-bellagio.JPG
... I hope you all have a great time painting in 2008!
