Forgot all about this picture. One I did a long time ago and somehow it never got put in my folder, and seems to have disappeared from my sites. I’m in the process of using it for a banner so thought I would stick it up here, just so I don’t forget it again.. I did this a long time ago and still love the stern look.
Acrylic on paper. A4 size.
I started ‘drawing’ about eighteen months ago. I freely admit that my early attempts were .. pretty poor, but I am rather pleased with this sketch of Colonel Virginia Lake.

This was done to go with ‘Vodka’ as well! Acrylics on board.
The hardest part of this was trying to get the eyes right!
This was done for the penultimate scene in ‘Vodka’. Pastels on white card. Size A4.
Something a bit different: Acrylics on board.
This is from Close Up.Initially I didn’t like the drawing, but I fertled with it and it ended up like this:
A selection of drawings.
1. This was done with pastels, and is deliberately ‘blocky’.
I am going to do it in acrylics in summer..hopefully in A2 size, if not even larger.
It’s probably my favourite image.. and one I keep coming back to. Perhaps one day I will get it really accurate!
2. The original looks better than the scan. (really!) I just wanted to do something a bit different. I was actually very pleased with the way the crystal obelisk turned out. I’ll have a go at the glass sphere soon. Maybe.
I was never really happy with the first version of this, so I had another go. Pleased with the ‘tubing’ on this picture, and the reflections but still struggling with the eyes. Oh well, I can always try again! Difficult to get the background evenly dark using 9B pencil, but paint is too ‘flat’.
