Calvins

 Greetings

Here is an extra post to brighten a dull Sunday.

I was going through one of my portfolios the other day and found this drawing of a young man showing his Calvins.


Until next time

Shades

 Greetings

This is an acrylic painting of a young man wearing shades and a leather jacket.

I think the leather came out particularly well.


Until next time

Merton Park

 Greetings

This another landscape I painted locally.

When I was at Art College In the mid 1980's there was a small park consisting of two disused platforms( for a branch line that no longer existed) at Merton Park Station.

This view was painted standing between the platforms and looking towards the line that was still in use.



The park has since been redeveloped for housing and the active line is now park of the Tram Link to Croydon.

The footbridge was dismantled and was reassembled at Corfe Castle in Dorset as part of their Heritage Line

Until next time

Adieu

Dragons

 Greetings

This is a small acrylic painting that I sold at the first World Science Fiction Convention I attended ( Glasgow  in 1995).

I still like the juxtaposition of the oriental dragons with the English pastoral landscape.


It is called "Dragons at noonday".

Until next time

Adieu

Self portrait

 Greetings

I recently came across my first self portrait.

I did this when I was on my Art Foundation Course in the mid 1980's. I had to set up three mirrors to allow me to draw myself in profile.

New painting

 Greetings

I have recently completed a new acrylic painting.

This is a self-portrait based on a photograph ( by Paul Holroyd) of me in Georgian dress.

Incidentally, the coat, britches and waistcoat are my own work.



I am calling this picture "Politesse".

Until next time

Adieu

 Hi

Here is an extra post for this week.

I found this coloured pencil drawing in one of my sketch books. It was inspired by a picture by Tom of Finland .


Until next time
