Tools in the garden.
























Oil on canvas, 45cm x 30cm.

Study of a work by Helene Schjerfbeck





This is a study of a work by Helene Schjerfbeck called Portrait of a man. The medium is Sennelier oil pastel on oil canson paper. Schjerfbeck was a Finnish painter who died in 1946 known mostly for portraits and less for landscape. I really liked this painting when I saw it so I had to reproduce it as an exercise.

The bridge at Puente Nuevo..





This is a drawing I did of the bridge at Puente Nuevo with a disposable pen.
This incredible bridge is just begging to be drawn.
Its surprising the tone and textures you can create with
cheap plastic disposable pens.
