2011 Posting Error

I have realised I didn't post on the 8th of September, I will endeavour to find out what I painted and let you know as soon as I do! Bah, I didn't like 2011, glad it's gone.

I'm not surprised I think I was moving an art school that week in september!

#034 Chocolate Orange

Christmas isn't Christmas without a chocolate orange, or two, the thing is they don't last all that long. Especially when you paint one digitally, and eat pieces of it while you paint. Just to get a feel for the subject you understand!

#033 Cracker Selection

I resisted the urge to paint a box on boxing day so here is a seasonal cracker selection for cheese or pâté.

#030 Hot Tap

Feeling a touch better today, Chiropractors are amazing. If you have any kind of neck or back pain I urge you to go and see one as soon as possible. I felt so good I cleaned the bath out! All ready to have a bath later on.

#027 Hot Waterbottle

Still suffering with weird head and face pain, went to the chiropractor today, a very nice lady who made my neck crack! Feel slightly strange this afternoon but have been prescribed hot water bottle application so it seemed like a good thing to paint.

#025 O2 Arena

Technically this was last night but we got home at 2:30 this morning from seeing the Manic Street Preachers at the O2 and I really wanted to paint the dome, which is by far the biggest thing I've painted throughout this project

#022 Indometacin

I finally know why I have been suffering searing pain across my teeth, face and neck, it appears I suffer from cluster headaches. A mysterious ailment probably diet/booze related. Can go away as quickly as it appears but will probably reoccur. In the meantime there are these strong painkillers.

#019 Hazard button

I haven't used the hazards today but I decided it was the best button in the dark while I was waiting to pick Debbie up from work tonight. I hope you all enjoy the tiny, seemingly insignificant, moments of my daily life.

#012 Lightswitch

I love how different natural light can be from daylight, through selecting the actual colour for these drawings from the real world it is surprising how 'different' colours are to what I expect.

#011 Chillis

The last of our chilli harvest. I know, it isn't very seasonal but then nor is the weather.

#010 Chickens

We realised that the chickens have started to moult, feathers everywhere! Which means we have probably had the last of our eggs for the year. I thought it would be good to make s drawing of them before their combs went all pale and deflated.
