A look at my current in-residence life model.


Slowing at the Finish


Above: a late night sketch of Gert my current "life model" (a rubber chicken hand puppet). The background rectangle is red Lukas Gouache, not a gouache brand I use for my final paintings, but something I tried a number of years ago and still have tubes of that I use up in my journals. Journal width doesn't quite fit on the scanner so the right and left edges are clipped off. Click on the image to view an enlargement.

I find myself in an unusual position. I'm creeping towards the end of a journal. Typically the closer I get to the end of a journal the faster I work. Hmmm. I thought I would mention this so that new journal keepers could be prepared for either eventuality.

Yesterday photographer Tom Nelson came over and gigapanned part of my studio. If you wonder what type of environment I work in, what surrounds me when I talk to you on the phone, or what type of brushes and easel I use (the image is that detailed) you can now check it out at Tom's gigapan site. Getting directly to the views of my studio by following the first link, and then visiting the link below to a second view.
