Sometimes you just have to paint..... so a bit of silliness with a landscape. The view from my back garden (not) !

The small nude is still a bit wet so excuse the dodgy photo but it was lovely painting on linen again, especially when you work small. Sketches and painting from reference photos on www.characterdesigns.com - a great artists resource.

Various scribblings from life over the last few weeks - from 2 minutes to 50. I've been busy with other things and havent always managed to get into the zone even if I have made the sessions, strangely its the longer poses that seem to suffer more (which is why there aren't many here). What a range of models eh, it certainly prevents slipping into any sort of comfort zone. The last model on this post was a revelation, she is young but has something very special about her and considering her relative inexperience held the poses beautifully - I predict she could be a very popular muse if she chooses to go in that direction and I hope I get to work with her again and do her proper justice next time. In any case she helped me decide about taking myself into a new direction, something I have been thinking about for a while. Just got to get down to it now.....
