Here's the third...
Here's the second "palette knife mini":
This is the first of what may become a series of small works done with a palette knife. They are 24x30cm acrylic on canvas board.

I love art books. They are delicious. I see them and want to dive into them, for me they are as irresistible as a bottle of good red. With that said I ordered the New Acrylics Essential Sourcebook by Rheni Tauchid and eagerly awaited its arrival.
It did not disappoint.
Whether you are a new artist or someone like me who has been painting for years, there is a wealth of information and the rich colours and textures of the paintings made me want to rush into my studio and start sloshing colours around. The most stunning and imaginative thing for me is a coat made out of paint skins.
The latest of the muscle/bone studies.
Next time you laugh or speak just think of the work that goes on underneath.
by Marcus Aurelius
Flinch not, neither give up or despair.
Suit thyself to the estate in which thy lot is cast.
Remember this: the longest lived and the soonest to die
have an equal loss, for it is the present alone of which
either will be deprived.
Well said that man.
It's too cold in my studio to paint, so I'm cuddled up by the fire sketching and (hopefully) improving my drawing skills.

As a left hander I have an automatic smudge tool built in. I'm sure that there are tidy left handers, but I am not one of them
Here is the next body part, charcoal on cartridge paper, it made me realize how complex we are.
