I want this dress to wear to work. Tomorrow. Someone sort it out please. I’ve realised a sad fact today and that is that I don’t own any dresses that force me to hold me arms out at 45 degrees.
Such a stunning painting. But I’m sad that she’s sad.
I love turning to paintings for writing inspiration. My next character is going to rock a mahoooosive skirt for sure.

That’s it, that’s all I wanted to say.
I’ve been asked to paint some cows from a photo and I’m finding it tough. Am going to see how it progresses before I give up entirely.
This is a rough painted sketch to see the colours (A4)…
This is the outline on the canvas (A3) …
lots to do to make the one in the middle look less like a pig, and the one on the left to look less like a cartoon.
