This was a high risk strategy, painting your wife's portrait is asking for trouble. Thankfully, it seems to have come out OK and Jean likes it.
Painted with Atelier Interactive acrylics, it measures 14" by 10". The reference was a photograph from our holiday in Bansko, Bulgaria a few years ago.

With less than 100 days to go to London 2012, it seemed like a good idea, to think about my entry for the Ron Polwin competition, sponsored by Lancing Art Club. The theme this year is "The Olympics".
The aim here was to try and capture the strength, grace and movement of the event.
It is painted with Atelier Interactive Acrylics on Bockingford paper and measures approx 13" by 10"

The topic at Art Club last week was a sunset in pastel or watercolour. I diligently printed out some reference photographs, and ensured that I left them at home. Many thanks to Hugh who supplied a couple of excellent replacements, from which this pastel painting was produced. It measures approx. 16" by 12" and was painted with Conte hard pastels on Windsor grey pastel paper.
This could be one for the August exhibition.
