The lines of wisdom

Another portrait in charcoal curtesy of a fantastic photographer Kyle Tunney. I love the emotions that Kyle has captured with his camera and hopefully this does his picture justice.


This is the latest piece, named Serendipity which means a happy accident. The photo was taken by a lovely lady named Annie who has given me permission to use. I am very happy with the feelings evoked and it is indeed a happy accident.   

Somewhere in Europe

This picture was from our adventures in Europe. One of the many cafes that we visited and walked past.

A Fisherman's tale

This portrait is curtesy reference from Kyle Tunney.A wonderful photographer that I have stumbled across in the blogging world who agreed to let me use his photo as a reference. Thank you Kyle. It is from his streets of Ireland photography. His piece really inspired me with the raw emotions that he captured. I had a wonderful time trying to do the photosome justice in charcoal.
