In recent weeks I have changed my tools. I used a squirrel mop brush that hold a lot of pain but comes to a fine point for calligraphic marking. I painted on a small notebook of Arches rough paper. I took my colour selection from Darren Woodhead, who paints birds direct from life with a skill that made me want to weep (http://www.darrenwoodheadartist.co.uk/). Prominent in this is the absence of pre-mixed greens and the generous use of rose madder in the neutrals.
I have revamped the pages to create galleries, marked by the tabs at the top of the home page. These show work I value, if not for my skill, at least for the meaning the work has for me. Please do look in on these.
