more still lifes

Bless him indoors - he's scanned my images.

Here are copies of the latest offerings - still lifes with some background and shading.  A slightly new direction.

still lifes

I'm moving in a new direction. I'm starting to put in backgrounds and shading to give my pictures some depth and also to make them look a bit more like still lifes.

Here are my first two offerings. On the image with the purple cloth background, the initial result was so bright it was overpowering the orchids in the foreground.

I put on a couple of dull washes and the effect looks quite like the faded patterns of a sarong. This looks quite good with the asian ceramics I think.

more work in progress

Feverish activity is on at the house. Aside from work, the project bike is being rebuilt after various bits came back from the painter and I have three exhibitions to prepare for between now and March next year - hopefully some more.

I guess this is the closest we will ever get to working together... call it 'quality time'

Wish the kitchen didn't smell of petrol though.

fish on Friday

So it's Friday again.... fish on Friday is the go.

These are mussels, sardines and our old friend: the blue swimmer crab.
Won't be buying sardines again - they really stank after only one day.

Have a lovely weekend all.
