I think I am getting back to normal now with a new computer, no 'flu and school holidays.
The school holidays are nearly two months this year because of the World Cup (though why the two are connected, I don't know!), so I'm not teaching and there are no art groups.
I have, however, taken advantage of all the workshops that our society organises during the Winter months, and last Tuesday did an oil portrait workshop with one of our top portrait artists, Lesley Charnock. For the first time I worked with just 3 colours and white - it was a revelation and something I realise I should have done 3 years ago when I first started painting.
Amy was a superb model and I think I caught her likeness quite nicely. So here she is - in ultramarine, cad red, cad yellow and a bit of titanium white!
