Trees and Roofsink4.5" x 3.5" (11.4 x 8.9 cm)A confusing little drawing. If you search you can find two roofs, part of a window, and a bunch of trees.
I was travelling last week and unable to get to a computer, which is why there were no posts. I'll have some drawings from my trip later in the week.

Another blues man is on his way.
Two-Toned Hairgraphite, ink, and oil pastel
12" x 18" (30.5 x 45.7 cm)I can't remember exactly what was going on with this model's hair, but I do remember that she usually had coloured highlights in otherwise jet black hair. (I'm not quite sure what she was sitting on.)
Hipgraphite, ink, charcoal, and conté
10.6" x 18" (26.9 x 45.7 cm)The model has a great hip. What can I say?
Flamenco Dancergraphite, charcoal, and pastel
12" x 18" (30.5 x 45.7 cm)
The composition is stolen from Degas, who often liked to put his subject off to one side.

The model makes a living as a seasonal worker in British Columbia, picking fruit and planting trees.
For anyone interested in Lucien Freud there's an interview with him at the Telegraph online. (Thanks to Joerg Colberg at Conscientious for mentioning this.)Below is an example of Freud's work.

Take a look at a new art link: alec soth - blog. It's an excellent blog of photography and comment.

Homer produced many extraordinary watercolours in Florida and the Caribbean. They rank among the great masterpieces of art.
Untitled 3ink monoprint
5.4" x 6.2" (13.7 x 15.7 cm)Another monoprint of the same image as Saturday's post.The prints were taken from separate drawings of the same subject. The drawings were done with brush and ink on paper, and the prints were hand pressed on damp paper.

Part of the attraction of this drawing for me is its confusion. It's difficult to tell what's what.
The back of the drawing is marked North Forks Hostel. I don't remember where this is, but I'm sure that if I think hard or do a little research I'll come up with the answer.
Man With Folded Arms
8.6" x 8.4" (21.9 x 21.5 cm)
Not a pretty painting, but not a timid painting either.
