123 Red Bed

122 Glass abstract piece

Please bear (or is it bare) with me over the next few days DYD will be a little erratic. Yesterday's image was taken out of the glass kiln but I have no image if it yet and I am not at home so we will wait for that one. Normal service will resume when I say so!

121 Pink Glass Ukulele

I have spent today, just outside my comfort zone, making sculpture! Yes, for the first time in the six, and a bit, year history of Dan Young, Daily I have gone 3D. We have had the first day of a two day training in our new kiln and today was all about casting glass. This is my open cast glass ukulele which I hope will be predominately pink which ,earns it qualifies for the year of red. I might not sleep, but I have to wait till about 2 o clock tomorrow afternoon. 

Till tomorrow lunchtime....

Ochres portrait - oil on board

Coming along nicely, trying to resist using white so just adding a few tones with Naples yellow, if you haven't used it you must its a wonderful colour.

112 Ochre - oil on board

Owing  to her red collar and reddish tones in her fur ochre the puppy qualifies for a painting during the year of red so her goes an oil painting of her facing away from me.
