Faux fur 1

This is one part of a diptych which was done years ago. It's pastel pencil on some sort of brown paper. I think it's about 10" x 10" in size. I'll see if I can find it's other half and post it next.
Still no new work from me and now that Xmas is near there is even less chance.

Ariel

This old drawing was done with brown pencil on cartridge paper .. I used a reference image but changed it greatly to come up with this.

Meritaten

Another ancient Egyptian - 'Meritaten' - I called her that, although the real Meritaten may not have looked like this. This was done mainly from my imagination after looking at a reference picture of a girl with her head turned away. I used pastel for this drawing on Fabriano pastel paper .. it's a very old drawing.

One small cherry

Just a small paint doodle - a little cherry painting - Jo Sonja acrylics on canvas toned with burnt sienna/burnt umber mix. It's good to flex those brushes occasionally - even on a small one like this. :)

The look

Lately I have come close to deleting this blog and having a huge bonfire with my existing artworks. I've actually had my finger on the delete button .. but hesitated. Just one of those
things that artists (so called) go through I guess.
So here is another quite old one .. Jo Sonja paint on canvas.

Charcoal sketch

Just a small quick charcoal sketch on Fabriano pastel paper.

Amelia

I've found another image of one of these rather old drawings - done years ago - this is the preliminary drawing for a pastel. It's pastel pencil on Fabriano pastel paper. Sometimes I like the first sketchy drawing better than the finished pastel.
