It is the last day of 2019, and among other things, I’ve spent some of it doing something that will hopefully put smiles on faces in the new year.
I did some more work on this commissioned piece for the Rotary Club’s 200th anniversary. They have chosen The Great Gatsby as their theme to celebrate this significant milestone. Seeing this finished will bring a smile to my face and hopefully theirs!
I added the finishing touches to this painting. This is the first painting of a series of three. These paintings will be great for a beach shack.
My new Sailor Fude pen arrived today. I couldn’t wait to try it, so out I went and drew this house. I should have set myself up on the footpath (sidewalk) but I couldn’t motivate myself. The steering wheel really got in the way. I couldn’t really get the hang of making different line thicknesses with the pen but with a bit more practice, I should be able to.
Once again, I got the right side of house’s perspective wrong…. but I’m happy with the liveliness of the picture.
Happy New Year everybody! I hope 2020 provides the world with a lot of things to smile about.
