Woyww - Jumped Upstarts

scattered across my desk are the makings of an art book for a special artist, so it has to be good, you know one of those that puts you under pressure...

I have been using some of the jumpstart (google it as you need to start at the beginning and if I link it will be half way through) ideas; and then I decided to do alot of collage (see last post if you want to do a big canvas collage that is simple and easy).

The jumpstarts are great fun, but then I got sidetracked by the collaging and doing my own experiments with texture and went off at a tangent playing with fusible webbing and a hot gun and none water soluble wax pastels - not sure if you can see it, zooom into the left of the pink/purple lady...it's the textured trails streaming from her dress...

I'm further distracted from any kind of single focused art by a semi request for a 'queer art book' - which my mind already had ideas about and magazines are earmarked and paints are being splashed into colour schemes...

 somewhere buried in here is the ground work for Friday's Brazil postcard - I think I may have lost it ( the postcard)

and of course here it is tah dah - last night's naked man, I have taken a bit of artistic liberty and photoshopped the contrast up to what will be the finished greyscale value range, at the moment in 'real life' I still have a final layer to put on the darkest tonal values and highlights,

I was focusing on proportion - and I'm happy, bright light source was low left to high right - sorry about the graphite glare (flash back)

Now, please allow me to explain about next weds: I shall be doing my evening woywwer rounds this week, next week I shall post but not link for I am out and about and will not be able to return visits, so drop by next weds by all means, comment if you wish, but if offended by a nil return please give me a miss....

or shall I get the house dog sitter to impersonate me??? hmmmmm or shall I do a double in a fortnight or shall I do nothing ever again?   argghhh decision paralysis
