Lorna in the Studio

Lorna is painting my portrait at the moment. As you can see, it’s quite large. It’s going to be interesting working out where to hang it at home.

It was very strange to see all the source images around. I’m just not used to seeing so many pictures of me!

As you’ll have seen from my previous posts, I love the profusion of stuff in an artist’s working space. I was pleased to see Bunny (an Easter present from me) supervising.

Mmmmm – the richness of colour here is fantastic. The purple and the pinky-red are a sumptuous mix.

And here is the exhasuted artist!

Sue in the Studio

For the 2nd time today I’ve escaped out to an artist’s studio. This time, it’s to Sue’s where she’s painting an interesting abstract. It’s meant to be a garden through myopic eyes. Although, to me, it looks like the colours which dance before the eyes just before sleep.

I love the mess and general detritus around studios. It’s not often as an adult that you have the sanction to make an absolute mess. This artist business looks like a lot of fun to me – give or take the odd ear.

And here is a very special piece – the cockrel/bird of paradise that Maddy persuaded me to paint the other week. Maybe I should get the paints out more often 😎
