Two guys

A small pencil sketch of two guys drinking wine in a square somewhere in Eastern Europe. Tallinn or Prague maybe… And they’re drinking red wine in a jug: how odd . Notice the beard…

Polly

I locked up all the crackers just in case… Trying new textures, colour combinations and painting an old favourite of mine: a parrot.

Russian present

Amazing collection, in the form of postcards, of lacquered iron trays from the Russian village of Zhostovo near Moscow. Beautiful colours and incredible skill went into making them. What makes them really special is the combination of pictorial techniques and the use of folk art imaginary taken from the extensive Russian tradition. I absolutely love them.

Lovely present all the way from Hungary.
