Well as I have finished the latest gnome I thought I would have a go at painting again. Claudia's boys called to me as soon as I saw the reference so I cleaned up the clay and got to work.
First the charcoal drawing. 12" x 24" canvas.
This is as far as I got today. I rubbed off the flesh as it was just the wrong colour.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Jen, coming along very nicely with the soccer players. I understand how this one attracted you as it did for me as well. I'm looking forward to seeing this one progress.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Jen, very nice start.
I agree, nice start Jen. Glad you liked the ref. picture.
C&C always welcome
Jen, very promising - excited to see it.

Well did a bit more to the boys today. It was a beautiful day and quiet at the studio today.
Jen, good work. I like the folds in the clothing.
Jen, your boys are really shaping up. I also like all the draping of their shirts, especially the orange shirt. They are such a nice group of boys.
I just wonder if anyone else is having problems with the site? I am not receiving automatic responses when something is posted..
Thank you Charlie and Bonnie. This has been a fun painting as it is mostly about light and shadow patterns.
Bonnie I have not had problems but Karen has been unable to post the gallery. If anyone else has problems please report them to Courtney Jordan. The site does get these glitches every so often.
Jen this is coming along real nice, I agree with the shirts. I might have to buy this from you when you're done.
Jen thank you for putting this Months challenge together on short notice.
Charlie your watercolor is great. Looks like a place I'd want to go.
Jen great work on the soccer boys. Can't wait to see more.
I finally won the battle with the computer. The April gallery is up. Bonnie I think my posting problem was the browser. I was using Google chrome. I finally switched to explorer and was able to post.
C&Cs always welcome
Karen, thank you. i had never eaten there. Unfortunately they are no longer in business.
good start with the soccer boys
Hello Charlie...agree with Karen.
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please
Sorry this isn't the Buttercup cow but a near relative. Water colour A4 on rough Bockingford.
Sarah, thank you. BEAUTIFUL work on the cow!!! He looks peaceful.
