Emma As Olympia, In Stages

I always like to photograph my life paintings at various stages.
It is useful to chart your progress and to see where sometimes you might have gone wrong.
Very often it can also show you the point that you probably should have left off painting, which is always difficult to call.
Here's a set of Emma posed as Olympia. (please excuse the green tinge some of them have)

Painting The Nude Figure From Life

I'm very excited about my first workshop in the Back Loft. 
It's a lovely roomy and atmospheric venue to paint in.

I look forward to seeing some of you there on the day!

PJ at the University of Ulster Festival of Art and Design in Belfast

Next Wednesday the 11th of March I will be doing a talk and a demo at the University of Ulster Festival of Art and Design in Belfast.
Many thanks to my pal Julie Douglas for asking me to take part.
I hope to see some of you there.

The blurb says "PJ Lynch is an award-winning illustrator. He is a passionate advocate of good drawing in all its forms, and in this session he will discuss what drawing means to him with reference to his work as an artist and illustrator. During the session he will paint a portrait in oils."
