the other day i kindly received an invitation to join Julie Kay's portrait painting group on Flickr.
the idea is that one sends in photos of oneself, and then paints and posts portraits of the others who have sent in their photos. The huge attraction for this blogger is that NO SELF-PORTRAITS ARE ALLOWED!
The whole thing is a lot of fun, with 231(last count) talented members creating a constant stream of brilliant, clever, humorous, beautiful, dramatic, whimsical, insightful, inventive portraits in every imaginable style. Thanks Julia for organising it all.
yahooooo, a holiday for me, and for you, gentle reader, from morbid introspection (it is actually my semester break).
so here are some of the paintings and drawings i completed and posted on the Painters Party over the last few days. They are a mixed bag because i'm using the oppotunity to motivate me to revisit some of my older styles of working and to try out some new ones.
