I dug this up from the past, it was a drawing I did for a holiday card at work. Does this some up the holiday spirit or what? Sketch of the day is almost making a comeback.

This was a piece of homework I just reworked as a sample. I'm still working on a couple of bar paintings but this was a welcome distraction. I should post some sketches at some point,. what with this being "Sketch of the Day" and all.

Once again it's been a while since my last post. Angie and I ran the New York Marathon on Sunday, can I use that as a good excuse? There are no excuses of course just distractions, once again I'll vow to do better, who knows maybe this time I will.
I'm mapping in the lights and darks on this painting, trying to prize the truth from the photographs I'm using, last week I went and sat in the bar again and made color notes and a value study, this is a little closer to the truth. I hope ti finish this soon, I'm working on a couple more which I'll be posting soon. Thanks for your patience.
