After Jeremy Mann

This is a piece after Jeremy Mann titled " The Melancholy Passerine".
Only just discovered Mr Manns work and it's great.

This isn't finished, well it might be I'm not sure , yeah, no , I dont know !

No it's not and I hate how the camera distorts it. I have lots to do on this but loving it so far.

I'm ready for my close up

This little fellow was sat in the fridge all alone so he jumped onto my blog.

6x6 acrylic.

The more I see of this guy the more I like him and hearing that he co-wrote "Ordinary People" (or did he ?) which is a song I knew but never really listened to made me like him even more. Thats a great song with some fine lyrics.

This is a 20 minute charcoal sketch.

I took this along to the art club I go to at Monk Fryston and got some great advice from one of the members, (thanks Barbara) and so I got stuck in and changed a few things and she's coming on.

Few more tweaks here and there and hopefully I won't mess it up too much.

Pear all alone

I have gone back to my comfort blanket here, another painting inspired by Carol Marine.
She may have moved on but I haven't. (see her blog)

Still, it's all practice and thats all im doing with the paints for now.

Pet Pooch Milly

This is not finished but is coming along. I am happy that it is a decent enough painting but not sure yet about the likeness , think I got to straighten her mouth out , add some more colour , ears obviously need finishing and her left eye needs some work.

Would love to have some comments bad and good or otherwise

Two caricatures

I did these for a friend at work whois getting married.
These are his best men , one being his brother who is a drummer wannabe popstar who works at a famous dept store. The other is a student loan adviser who loves basketball.

I figure you will work which is which.
