Back to the Brushes

I've been working on a still life painting for the past few days. I'm finding that painting is like most other skills -it atrophies from lack of use. Still, if nothing else it's nice to have the smell of linseed oil and medium hanging around the studio/office again.

I've also been rearranging things a bit, which always means leafing through old sketchbooks. I know I've posted this before, this picture of Angelica turning herself into a cat by force of will. I drew it at cafe Picadilly in Pontremoli, and when I see the picture I can still get a feeling of that sunny morning in the piazza:

Finally here is a link to some monsters by illustrator Rob Steen -link courtesy of the First Second blog. Oh, and speaking of First Second, I'll post a graphic novel update soon!

Happy Hunting!
