This painting is done first with a pencil sketch.  I found the colouring in an interesting practice.  Fran

The Horseman

It should have been easier to draw the swishing hat but somehow I found this  as you can see difficult–and yet this man was almost never seen without a hat–even when the horse was speeding off and not entirely in control.  I need Heather nearby for she is so good at drawing expressive hands, hands, perhaps tell us more about the person than most details.  Perhaps it will take more years than I have  to learn but even making the effort is becoming rewarding.  Fran

Another practice drawing: This time I know I must re-draw the eyes but I thought
I would share the beginning with you.  Fran
Can we know the woman behind the veil?


I was playing with the watercolors and the salt eraser in Painter, and then decided to paste the negative of an image traced from one of this past autumn’s raven photos, and came up with this. I though he was kind of fun!
