Pompous Penelopy

This "portrait" is purely from my imagination. As the image developed from my subconscious, she seemed to have acquired a haughty look somehow …alas naming her was not difficult.

Sojourn at a Café or Tatie and Nini

Watercolour, Waterford 250 gr, Size 33 x 25 cms. 
Inspiration for this painting was Kees van Dongen "The Two Cousins". I just love the loose, free, imaginative, semi abstract approach to portraiture of some of the artists of that era.

Servant Girl

Watercolour, ArtSpectrum 300gm WC Pad, Size 24 x 12 cms.
