This is a photo of a painting did about 10 years ago. I did it to look like a George Stubbs original! It has fooled many visitors to our house. I used an oil paint cracking substance to give it some authenticity, and lots of layers of different varnishes. We have just sold our house to move to Daylesford in Victoria, the people who bought the house wanted me to include the painting in the sale, which I did. It's about 1 meter 20 cm in width.

This drawing was completed last week at our groovy life drawing session!! I loved this pose, and knew straight away it would make a nice drawing. The pastel that I used left a lovely texture on the paper. Also it was an unusual colour to select, but it seemed to work nicely.
