I've started a new blog.....

This one went a bit 'off piste!' My new blog is called 'Work In Progress' and it will concentrate on my learning adventures in painting and drawing. I hope to see you there!

Left handed sketching

I've started doing sketches with my left hand and found I'm quite pleased with the results. For some reason I find it fun and I like the loose effect.

Tasha

Whilst settled in Droitwich Spa for the winter I have been doing quite a lot of painting and sketching. Earlier last year when we were travelling near Rugby we met a boating couple who asked me to paint their dog. She's a lovely affectionate rescue dog, Tasha. They didn't have any decent photos of her so I snapped this one just as it was starting to rain and Tasha was going back inside their boat. Unfortunately we had to travel on and didn't see them again, but if we ever do I'll give them this painting which I've recently finished. Oil on canvas 12" x 15"
