Allotment Commission

Couldn't settle on one so sent all four of these off to person who commissioned them. They are slight varients on a theme.

More on the Cork Jazz Pic

Have scrapped this idea at least for the person it was intended for. I'm just doing a much simpler more colourful piece now. Time is marching on - this didn't have a deadline, I actually miss deadlines they help you focus.

I was thinking of doing loose colour washes and maybe just picking out some specific details in stronger colours or perhaps I should leave it as a black and white. Any constructive suggestions, tips or reccomended viewing of other pictures that are dealing with a lot of elements brought together by colour most welcome. Here's some rough ones I've begun playing with below.

Jazz Pic Updated a bit more as of April 24 th 2009

This is a commissioned work, the person wanted a reminder of their time at the guinness Cork Jazz festival, so some cork,some jazz, some guinness, not finished yet.

These others are of Irish writers - they are quite rough at the moment although I will prob leave the Joyce one mostly as it is I will work up the Behan and Becket some more
