Merry Christmas!

I wish you all a very merry christmas and hope that peace and goodwill are yours throughout 2013.
I would also take this opportunity to thank everyone who has shown interest in my humble bloggings and contributed with comments, different points of view, virtual pats on the back and sales! I am always very appreciative.

Alfie WIP

This is a commission.....a birthday pressie, I think. Anyway, so far so good....except, as usual, I do wish I had been doing the background along with the dog!

WA - Pass the Object

We all took along something Christmas-y to draw. We had a set time and a different medium for each one, and then the object was passed to the person to our left.
Graphite and Sharpie.

Different sized drawing pens with left hand (I'm right-handed)

Contour drawing looking at paper.


Contour drawing NOT looking at paper.

Then Judith showed us the 'magic' painting with watersoluble black ink. If you add more water to a drawing after the ink has dried, the ink separates into it's component and yellow!

Love this one!

Painting.......or not.

Siblings  20" x 16"   Oil
I have finished this commission,  just in time for Christmas, and really hope the recipient likes it and think she has a wonderful brother to think of such a lovely gift. Can't believe I started this back in September!
So.....I have been painting, a little, but, I confess I have turned my attention elsewhere....back to my first love...sort of. When I was 17 I wanted to be Michelangelo! I wanted to have created 'David' and 'Pieta' but real life took over and I have never, or ever shall, have the wherewithall to realise such ambition. But carve wood I can do, or at least I can try. My efforts are not for public scrutiny as yet...but don't go away!
