No painting today, too many visitors in the space (a good thing) and students sharing my table for the free internet.  But here is a shot of yesterday's almost completed work, although like the other photos taken in this space it is a bit too yellow.  Where the colour looks yellow it is actually a warm diluted red but the yellow base is dominant in the photo.  The reds are much more red in the real.

I am happy that I am getting the transparency of the poppy with the sun coming through the petals, and am keen to do this in a bigger work.

But first there are some paintings to do for others, one of them a fresco.  Am I up to it? I'll let you know when I have looked at the job!

Today I am grateful for company.
