Day 27

I am still on schedule to do 1 a day. Think its going to be tough! Rene commented that I look like Im painting 2 or 3 a day but its only usually 1 apart from on some of my days off! Didnt get any painting done during te day today, but did a small still life this evening while my wife Jo watched the tv. Nothing on as usual and really enjoyed painting the study of my lead bust!The lead bust was given to me by a very kind gentleman and is one of my most treasured possessions. It was of a little girl and was made by the sculptor Bunny Cinden. It came from the garden of his old house and I assume was a cast off as it has a big crack/fault in the front. Ive always fancied painting it as I thought the greys of the lead were going to be a real challenge. " The famous saying by Velasquez defiunately came to mind, " Look for the coplours in grey and the greys in colour"

Im going to call it " The lead bust, study in greys"
think that sounds poncy enough :-)

off to bed now, got to get up for work in morning :-)

  1. It is wonderful...looks like it would be quite challenging...but the painting seems effortless.
