Yesterday I got to see my favourite painting in the flesh for the first time. The Ambassadors by Holbein. It didnt disappoint. Check out the detail in the curtains, the floor! The highlight in the red sleeve, the forshortening of the guitar... I'm nearly weeping for joy telling you this . Go to the National Gallery and see for yourself if you haven't already.  Cheeky  I don't know why I can't throw away the paint I scape off my pallette but hord it I do. Think this pile has a piece of every colour I've mixed for the last 2 years. I've loved some of those colours and actually shouted in rage at others. Anyway. Happy Sunday.  Til tomorrow...  Highlights starting to go in. Smoke needs a lot of work.
 Varnishing and then saying goodbye to the original 'Picking Up The Pieces'.  Yesterday I got to add some colour to the birds I've been painting all over someone's walls.  Crisis. 1.2x1meter. A painting inspired by ANOHNI's song Crisis. Swipe left for more images and click the link in my profile to listen to the song.  My good friend @iamjoe_s just tagged me in a photo of my painting at The Greenbank with his very handsome mug in front of it. What more do you want on a Sunday evening.  Got to spend some time on this one today.

Colour to be added.  Just about done. Need to remember to bring my camera to the studio sometime so I can take a half decent photo to show you.  A tiny sketch of some drone pilots.  Back to work. Mondays :) Kept good company by Max Richter's new album Three Worlds.
 Couple more  Happy mother's day to my luvva and baby mumma. This is a stance she often adopts when I start explaining my latest money making scheme.  #tbt to over a year ago when I started this self portrait. It's stacked on a shelf not much further on than this. Need to finish it one day.  A very basic light skin tone pallette. In case your interested - Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, Cadium red, Ultramarine Blue, Raw Umber.  The OA has left me on another dimesion. Did everyone notice this beautiful moment when she appeared to have wings and a halo? . . . #theoa #nde #netflixandchill
