Well, I think it’s done. My latest artisitic effort.
18 x 24″ acrylic on canvas board

Thing is I only really seem to be able to do this sort of pseudo-realism. I don’t even really like realism except for that sort of jaw dropping ‘OMG I thought it was a photo’ kind. Even then I only appreciate it for the craft and skill involved. But this is a growing process I must remember that to throw away realistic depictions you first must be able to do them. I’ve spent the last 30 odd years doing graphic design very little of which required drawing anything more than a thumbnail or a widget. So I have some relearning to do. I do actually *have* some ideas for interesting paintings, but I don’t have the cajones (nor the skills) to pull them off, yet.
