Two hat

colder than it should be @ 4°C, no real wind, but real sun.


New picture: There is a narrative struggle in this one. The hat will be slightly military in style, as well as a bit dog-eared and torn. Using Raw sienna with rose madder again to use the new colour combination, oh & cadmium orange is still in there too. It’s best not to use too many colours.
 
This is the sort of picture that could be done in a hundred different ways, each with slight changes in emphasis and therefore -meaning. that all comes from body-language.
 
Sleep earlier! Tired all day today, my own fault really since bedtime ended up late for a 6:00 am alarm. I got engrossed in a drawing at about 23:00. You know how it is- sometimes you have to finish something.

Music: Frank Zappa– Waka Jawaka. There was some really interesting stuff in the mid-seventies, stuff that still hasn’t worn thin even today.

  1. Dear ‘Sir’,Delighted to seep into your Space and become acquainted with your art; I don’t know how I missed you for so long. The Zappa sink above, by the way, reminds me of a great poster of the man on a porcelain throne, predictably known as ‘Zappa On The Crapper’… but enough scatology. Let me just say that I am known for several hours each day as ‘Miss’. I must go now – but I will come back for a longer visit soon. Could you turn the central heating up a bit higher, d’you think? It IS a bit chilly in here.Regards,Joss

  2. I have to second my friend Joss’s appreciation of your site. I love your feet, dear! (No, that’s not a latent fetish, just a love of good art). And I know a bit about Birmingham too, for my sins.Come up, see me sometime: there’s always room for a little ‘un at ‘Autumn Years’.Bye bye, ‘Sir’. Incidentally, if I’m a good girl, will you give me a sugar fish? (Don’t ask – I still get rejection flashbacks from primary school…)xxxRenee
