Ahem… well it seemed like a good idea yesterday, but now I have drawn it I’m a little alarmed at how complex some of the pictures are getting. These were meant to be simple!
Anyway, let me introduce you to the latest sketch for my calendar: 10 Fairies for October… all wearing masks, as seemed only appropriate, but still no clothes of course: lets not get too carried away here! Actually, I always thought a Naked Masquerade would be a great subject for a painting. I’m also sure it would be a great theme for a cocktail party, though I’d rather be the fly on the wall than a naked party-goer, but don’t you think it would be interesting to watch people’s behaviour? Hmm… ok, maybe I’m just weird.
Anyway 10 fairies and one huge carved pumpkin. It began when I started thinking about the months I had left to do, and that maybe party hats and crakers could feature in December, and then I thought “I know just what October needs!”. Oh dear… at this rate it’s definitely going to have to be all paintings, and that will take a while. Still, the other option – pencil and gold leaf – is not terribly quick either.
Yes, I know, I have missed out a month again, and I’m off to think about September now… Oh, and anyone interested in one of these calendars, they will in due course be available to buy from my website, never fear!
