I have only found time this past few days to fuss around a bit in the studio as I spent time considering my supplies for the trip and how to actually transport my art supplies in an easy way to travel with each day.
Here are two paintings completed. The first, something for my edible series - artichokes and it was painted in my favourite way- no drawing just straight in with water and pigment.
The second is my very first human portrait. Whilst it has a lot wrong with it (overworked for one, lost it on the eyes etc) I can see that the skills I have been using for my animal portraits (mainly the observation) over the past year has enabled me to at least end up with something that does resemble this African boy swimming in a murky waterway. It has given me some confidence to have another try.
I hope to be able to keep up with seeing your blogs and commenting if I can. Till next time - happy painting
