Nebulosity 1

Off we go on another tangent and all this is a diversion from what I should be doing - painting! However I quite like this and it may form the basis of a new painting, if I ever get the present one finished. 
I do need to work at the charcoal as the face here is far too crude.

Trituration 2

Thought I would do a few more in this series but should be back to painting soon. Not sure where these are going yet.

Trituration 1

Needed a break from the painting so this is a bit of drawing, white pencil, ink and digital. I might do a few more along these lines.

I have been working on this for at least two months but have quite enjoyed it and I am reasonably pleased with the finished piece. Just before I retired I thought about the types of paintings I wanted to do when I had all this free time! Apart from developing quite a few ideas I did think I would like to do a series of straight portraits. Generally speaking, at this time, most of the people I mixed with were teenagers and people my age. So I decided to produce a series which I thought of as “Old Gits and Young Things” This is the first and the model is the delightful Elena.
The composition and background owes a lot to the artist Walter Brems.

I’m not sure who the next one will be in the series but I am being pestered by one of the “Old Gits” to do his next! Watch this space….
