I have finished the ‘blue stage’ of this painting, next for the colour. More pictures will follow…

Remember, do not play with fireworks: always remember to hide inside a jam-jar to avoid nasty burns! That is all my advice for today, I have paintings to paint, and, as it happens, bonfires to light, but that’s quite unconnected.

    1. Ah… you just didn’t invent things that naked girls like perhaps? 😉

  4. Thanks for the advice. I always liked to play with matches as a kid. Nice work!

    1. Quite right too… I did jewellery design at art school… you get to play with fire and melt things AND then get a masters degree out of it too. Bargain! 😀
