Figures and Framing

Thought I ought to post some figures - nothing new but I have been messing around with frames, getting a few supplies and sorting out things this week. Life drawing starts again next week, yeay!

This was taken by the proud Dad on his camera phone, quite tricky to paint because it was a very bright sunny day with deep shadows but I think it came out OK.

Prize Winner - Oil on canvas board 8 x 10"

This is a sketch for a painting that has been knocking around for a while and was looking a bit bedraggled - fixative never totally works in my experience. So I tidied it up, painted a mat and framed it for someone who has taken a fancy to it. Had I known it was going to end up framed I would have done it on better quality paper and left a bit more headroom, we live and learn. Excuse the slighty wonky photo, trying to avoid reflections on the glass. Photographing art is an art in itself I am finding.

16 x 20" Charcoal on paper

Thought I would show the painting, still a bit short of headroom but if I ever get around to framing it I will use the floating type. Its the first of a series I had planned but I am still looking for the right reference material or it will be a series of one!
