cafe michelangelo- july 2016

Hi folks! July...and no sign of summer here. Its been cold and pretty miserable weather for a couple of weeks.

So I am going to start re-decorating the walls in my flat! What are you up to?

I thought we could try a pen and ink thread this month so I will post it asap. I hope you manage to join in. Pen drawings can be quick sketches or more involved with hatching and other shading, so get out your pens...loose nibs, bamboo pens, roller ball, gel pens, anything goes.

See you later!

Re: cafe michelangelo- july 2016

Winter here is the dry season, so I could send plenty of sunshine to those in need. But I won't because we need it here. Our winter days are mostly mellow and pleasant, but when we have the rare few days of cloudy or rainy weather, it gets pretty miserable. Nights are already freezing enough, thank you!



I have painted another small acrylic (13 x 18 cm) in my developing "naive post-impressionism" style:



And some portrait practice, just because...

Re: cafe michelangelo- july 2016

Scottish born (and there until mid twenties) so I'm fairly familiar with frost and snow. I prefer coolish weather but not cold. Some sun but not hot! A bit fussy really. Ha ha.

I like your landscape and portrait drawing. Is the child someone you know? She is enchanting.

I don't see how anyone can survive in Scotland if they're picky about the weather. I just need to think of Scotland to start shivering.

Just a random pic off the web. I often draw portraits, especially of children, because they really stretch one's abilities to the limit, and that's the way to make some progress.

Re: cafe michelangelo- july 2016

England (where I live now) seems to be a fine compromise weather wise for me. I lived in NZ for a few years and that could be a bit hot and humid in summer!

I managed a quick sketch of your cockatoo picture in the WDE this morning Tyree.

Re: cafe michelangelo- july 2016

And another landscape; this one about 8 x 12 inches:



And something for a friend who is very much into World War II stuff:



At the moment, there is quite a disconnect between my painting style and my drawing style. But I have long had this notion that while drawing is serious, painting is just for fun.

Thanks! Here's another one:



My landlady's daughter. I have known her since she was a little girl, and she's pretty much like a daughter to me. Nowadays she's in her final year of high school, and an up and coming young actress, with several stage productions and small roles in soap operas to her credit. No doubt, before long my claim to fame will be that I know her, and then the price of my work will skyrocket.
