"When is the judging Paul and are you only allowed to submit one painting or can you submit more.  I know I am being nosey but I'd rather say interested in how you get on."

Hiya Dorothy, thanks for the compliments on my last pic.

Stretching......I'm a lazy artist, which is one of the reasons I've been using illustration board for years. The other reason being that when I have an idea for a pic, I like to get on with it: board, tools, ink and I'm off. But where washes are concerned, there is no brand/type of illustration board which doesn't warp. So I'm just going to have patience and start stretching some heavy watercolour paper.....pft!

As for Pringles and eating my pic......The board I used is 3mm thick, and after all the soaking it got, now that it's dried right out it's as hard as a ships buscuit, and I'd like to keep all the teeth I have left. No, I reckon Pringles would be far more palatable...........Before I gave up eating processed food, I could and did eat entire tubes of Pringles in one sitting.....Bad.

Unlike last year, the weather in West Yorkshire has been ridiculously mild.....T shirt weather!

Hello Dorothy,

Thank you for your comments on Christ on the Cross, we will learn from each other. Once stop learning we stop creating and that is the heartbeat of art, I am willing to try anything new to achieve my goals.

Hello Dorothy once again, glad that you like it. It was hard work trying to create that leather jacket look, it  took time but in end if it achieves the end result you know you have got there. Thank you for your kind comments.

Hello Dorothy,

So pleased that you like “ Man without a gun “ Clint Eastwood.  My understanding is it affects men more than women my spectrum falls under the reddish grey colours,  I have learnt to live with it and as far as painting goes I read a lot and look at videos  for colour tones and skintones and just add the colours what is required and if it looks good to me then I carry on and hope it works. I Went through a period where I was fascinated by detail and using the routine pen gave me that ability. If you have time please have a look at Christ on the Cross which took quite awhile to create.

I take something called Rivotril when I go to bed which helps a lot as it seems to settle the sciatic nerve. I am obliged to visit a neurologist yearly for the prescription. Keep smiling! Can you enjoy a glass of wine? Mxx
