This stuff looks much better in real life but here we go:
This is the final version of Judge Zip and Major Tom’s portrait – I think. With some paintings it’s hard to tell when it’s finished and this is one of them for me. I feel I could continue to paint on this portrait, but this stopping point is good too – I’ll see what the owner thinks.
This is a more moody looking painting than a lot of mine are, and more to do with what’s going on with me than the subject. But art for me is always like that – if I eat a particular type of food or drink a particular drink there’s going to be an effect on the art. Chemistry and synergy – two of the adventures of art.
It’s also exhilarating to finish a painting!
