8"x6" Oil on board
When my neighbour gave me this bunch of old keys to paint, I told her they were a bunch of 'has beens', so that's how the title for this came about! I like the shadow on the door and I love painting keys...I have got no idea why they appeal to me, but they do! I had fun with this one, some were quite rusty and even the cord was old and faded. I have another one started already...could be a series coming on!!
Graphite and watercolor
This is done from a photo I have had in my files for a long time, I had thoughts of painting it one day but liked the idea of using graphite....I used a rubber for the highlights! I am finding all sorts of subjects for my drawings and enjoying the variety, I especially like drawing the back view of figures.
