Fried Egg Daddy and Future Bob

I've tried to do a portrait of Da. This is it in progress. The bad camera has made the colours look still more fried-eggish. I'll post it properly once it's finished.





I'm using quite smoothly sanded gesso boards and quite oily paint which can be wiped and scratched and rubbed away easily.





This all makes painting a little more movable, a little more like drawing. It's also quite fast. And I haven't quite mastered it yet.





It's one thing figuring out how to do a thing or a certain technique, and then it's another thing coaxing the finished painting to be something that actually appeals to me.





Then there's Bob, who is looking to the future with the wind in his heart. He look like he's in a Ladybird book.

That's Bob if he was free of me and my nonsense.
