Life Drawing at Castle Acre

To see more of what I did today go have a look at my life drawing blog - HERE-


A phone call yesterday brought the good news that my painting ' DAY OFF ' not only sold at Hertford Annual Summer Exhibition, but also won the Visitors Choice award. So how chuffed am I today! Voted best work by the viewing public! I like . It brings with it a prize, which my messenger could not tell me about.

Tiddling Again

 I couldn't leave poor Roy as he was, and so this is much improved! It was good to start upside down, but it needed a right side up tidy up!
 Added a glaze to the frill of her underskirt and some creases. Much improved also.
No comment! I think the problem I'm having is with the size of the heads...........small! No improvement..........YET!

WA - Upside Down Drawing.

Roy   16" x 20"  Charcoal + Chalk
Well this was fun. I really had to hold myself back from turning the drawing the right way up before the end of the session! It is fairly evident where it is wrong, but it is also very clearly a portrait of my 

A very happy 80th birthday to June! We had two scrummy cakes, so we all celebrated in style with her.

Works In Progress


I think that toning down the underskirt might be all that is required! You can tell me different if you like, feedback appreciated always.
Both paintings in oils.
