Flag and music synch

This was done as a sound synch exercise. It was a bit challenging to get the right timing and the right number of in-betweens without upsetting the overall flow of the flag. Working on paper again was a good break. The soundtrack is a very short part of one of my favorite pieces of music by G. Gershwin, the "Rhapsody in blue".

Life drawing

 Here are some life drawing studies of hands and feet done in class using oil pastels.
The poses were 15 minutes long.

Colour Studies

I went yesterday to the Natural History Museum in Dublin and here are two colour studies in oil pastels. The squirrel-like animal was just about the size of a regular squirrel, probably some ancestor down the line; I forgot to take down the name of it.


I should probably buy myself a decent oil pastels set as I'm using the basic 12 pieces set now....
