A Twiggy Tree after Bob Kimball.

An artist whose style I like is Bob Kimball who I understand is relatively unknown. I may be wrong but I know he sells very well on the Daily Paintworks site. I bought a painting of his called Twiggy tree and some time ago I painted my version of it.
However I gave that away to a friend so have done another. 

Very different from my usual portraits and figurative stuff but I like it. Simples ! 

Progress on "Minutes silence"

Just a progress shot of my police painting. If you didn't see my earlier post. I found this photo on the North a Yorks a Police website and got permission from the photographer and the police officer to paint it.

Two puddle jumpers

My email,blog,artist , mentor pal in Canada Patrick La a Montagne (did I make that introduction clear enough) expressed a desire to have my little coloured pencil sketch of the puddle jumper thT I did some time ago.

However when I dug it out to post it, I found  it had a small oil spot stain on the upper left hand corner. So I've done another version and turned the oil spot into a hanging spider. 

I think it works ! What do you think. 

This is the original, spider spot and all.

And this is the new version
