Just got it back from My lovely Framers over at Kishorn this morning & away in the post, not before a quick photie in front of the view..mountains in back obscured by Snow. Acrylics on thick paper. Stained Ash frame. Fashion design by , hey at  least I'd brushed my hair!

Steam Punk

Heres the sketch for something I'm working on at the moment. I realised I had a problem with steam punk, & that is I can think Victoriana without thinking pollution, poverty, social injustice, the excesses of imperialism, yes even in my fantastical imaginings have a social agenda, At what cost would gleaming crystal palaces, zepplins, robots & steam machines come at ?.. so Here's the waifs, but we couldn't leave them there in the stinking workhouse, thank goodness for the philanthropists!

Bruno goes to art class.

Took big fat hairy Bruno-dog to art class yesterday to model for us. Much entertainment & dog biscuit bribes. The student/participants came up with some great fluid sketches of the fidgeting beast despite initial panic. heres some of mine, I mostly had the back of his head as I sat next to him to try & keep him calm. He is a most photogenic pooch & I love him.
