Old enough to be an antique

Ruffling through my plan chest, trying to make some sort of order of it, I came across this survivor. The very first attempt I ever made of oil painting. It was a copy of a Breugel painting in Time magazine. My mother had some oil paints so I thought I would have a go at using them. Obviously never completed, but how it has survived I don’t know. It must have been painted in the mid to late 60’s, so anything up to 50 years old now. I quite like it as far as it goes.


Tuesday night life class

I was very radical tonight and spent two hours producing a carefully shaded pencil drawing. Not my usual technique. I’m quite pleased with the outcome. I like fore shortened reclining poses. Very classical.The model liked it enough to want to take a photograph of it.
