Medusa Sleeps

I'm currently approaching galleries and showing them my work. This is one of the paintings I'm showing. I borrowed my Dad's digital SLR and took some proper photos of my paintings finally. It took an age to set everything up and they looked all grainy, then I realised I had it on the wrong ISO and had to take the photos all over again, sigh!

Doll Face

Ah, spring light, it makes me so happy. Maybe I have season effective disorder or something. I'm just so strongly effected by the light quality. There's a cute little cafe at the top of Waterstones, but I always avoid it because the lighting in the place is intensely blue.

Above is a close up of a painting I was working a couple of days ago. Her figure takes up all of the canvas. I gave myself seasons as a theme and she was supposed to be summer, but I'd rather not tie the painting down to it's theme, just let it grow in a subconscious sort of way.
