Giraffe w.i.p

I didn't think I'd start anything more this week, however had a few hours, so decided to make a start on a mini canvas. It's only 8 x 8 in. I've two of them, both are going to feature giraffe. They are intended for my Xmas exibition with KAOS, end of November. The artists are getting together producing lots of these mini canvas, so we can have a canvas wall of very affordable original artwork. There will such a diversity of work, I think it will be great.
I have used a definite grid work for this under-drawing as the patches on the giraffe's fur have been stretched and folded with the pose of the giraffe, making them very hard to follow.

Ponte Vecchio 2

Finished off my small drawing of the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, just in time to start getting myself straight for this weekend's exhibition. I feel I want to go back to Florence again, it's such a magical place, so pretty.

Another painting of Ponte Vecchio

A small study, still in progress, I'm busy this week with an exhibition so didn't want to start anything too big. This is an A4 gouache and pastel pencil, I started the painting with simple flat blocks of gouache, which I'm now working into them with pastel pencil.
