SPEED on a Sunday Afternoon!

Today, having finished some "office stuff " on the computer, I settled down to some serious Sunday afternoon escapism ..... videos of other artists at work!! As people and faces are my most favourite things to paint I was drawn to tasting the delights of some very SPEEDY painters at work ....

Agnes Cecile - painting 'One in a thousand'

Voka - painting 'Marilyn Monroe'

Takeshi Sato - painting 'Live Paint Act - Dancer'

Just loved watching them!! Hope you will too.

Freddie - a kind of magic!

Otago Art Society is calling for entries into a Members Exhibition with the subject 'portraits'. Entries must be in by 4th June. I thought it might be fun to do a portrait of someone famous and settled on Freddie Mercury, one of my all-time favourites! I didn't leave myself much time so its on quite a small canvas .... but I think its just about finished except for a few tiny touches and some varnish.
