Tiddling Again

 After a friend and fellow blogger, Linda, pointed out a few let downs in the drawing of this, I tried to rectify, having seen just what she meant. I always find such interaction to be highly beneficial. Any ways, spending so much time on the underpainting goes against the grain with me, and I am now loathe to take this further by adding colour. 
After prevaricating, or is it procrastinating, about a background for this lovely girl, I bit the bullet and whacked on some colour. I had spent the morning asking the opinion of my fellow Wash Art Group members. Very helpful it was! Thank you.

Lizzie 20" x 20" Charcoal

Meet Elizabeth Crow, I have just found her on FB, after no contact for about 45 years. She was a playmate at primary school and high school and now we have challenged each other to draw the other!

A Start

 Me Three  16 " x 16" Oil
Back in 2009 this painting was one of five winners of The One Shows' Summer Exhibition. I have made a start on a new version of this same idea, inspired by The Three Graces, Antonio Canova's statue.

Happy New Year 16" x 16" Oil A Start

I said 'Please can I take a photo?' Their 'Of course!' meant nothing as they continued their messaging. 'I shall paint this!'
WooHoo! I am painting again. It has been a long break.
Happy New Year Everyone.
