latest coloured pencil piece WIP

Tree fungi WIP

I didn't post an entry this week as I have been out of town, staying with my Father. His health isn't good right now. He doesn't have internet access so I am unable to do any blogging when I am there.

This is as far as I have got on the fungi picture. As you can see, the drawing isn't finished yet but I have started adding colour. I am not sure I am in the mood for such an intense picture. Yesterday I took a break from it and I got out some tubes of acrylic paint and painted a small piece that featured two glasses of wine, one red - one white. I had fun with my escapism. I might start a smaller, less complicated piece in coloured pencil so I have something to work on when this one drives me nuts. Perhaps there is such a thing as a subject with too much detail :-) !!!

I shall be returning to my Father's home later this week. I hope to get the July newsletter written before then. If you are trying to contact me via email, please understand that circumstances may not allow me to read or respond to emails. I promise I will reply to any emails as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

I hope your Father gets to be feeling better.
