I did this small painting a couple of months ago. My painting buddys were all facing the other direction, painting boats on the water but, me (being a maverick!) chose to paint this suburban road going off in the distance and changing to a dirt road.

These are two of my drawings from last week, each pose would have been 15 or 20 minutes,
I am trying to hold back on using other colours, it is so tempting to grab the full range of pastels!!
so keeping them in a tonal range is so much better, (I think! ?)

Had a good night at drawing last night. Came away with three or four pictures that I am reasonably pleased with. I also enjoyed my lasagna and two glasses of red, (Australian of course!!) in the Cafe Pallazo. Anyone else out there in life-drawing groups? Is it making a come back?

As everyone else is doing this Illustration Friday, I thought I may as well join in the rush. And, if my work load permits, I will try to do one each week.
My neighbour has just bought a new leaf-blower, and this was the first image to come to mind. Hope you like it!

These are some close ups from some of my recent life drawings. When I go to a life class I am always interested in the faces of the models, when I get a back view (which seems to be most of the time, damn it!!) thats the time to make a coffee or wander around the room and watch the other artists doing their thing. I draw on a fairly large scale, the paper I use (white off-set) is around 1m deep. If anyone is interested in purchasing a life drawing, they are $200 US each + postage. Just email me for details.
