Work in progess

I've been working on a new painting over the last week or so. Sometimes its fun to really push yourself as an artist. In this painting I am using two references taken with a very basic in built flashlight which produced flat, uninteresting lighting but I loved the potential that each photo had  especially when used together so I am developing the lighting from my imagination creating a a soft warm shaft of light.

I also wanted to create an oldy worldy feel to the scene so have tried to use the space in the background to help with this. I still have lots of work finishing the typewriter before I can begin painting the child but I thought you might be able to help me with a title. I am thinking along the lines of 'when young meet old' but am open to other suggestions.


  1. How about "Texting" for the title? Can't wait to see it finished! I love the wallpaper's range of values. Sandy

  2. What a wonderful feeling of light you have alrready created. I can't wait to see this one finished
