Bramley and Blackberries

Bramleys and Blackberries is one of those marriages made in heaven. For me, they just shout 'crumble' all that we need is the jug to be filled with some hot, thick home-made custard to finish it off.

Pastel sketch of Tom

This is my second week painting Tom and as I wasn't able to choose a position whereby I could do a profile or three-quarters view, I decided to change medium, so this is my pastel version. The one thing Tom does move is his eyes, so to help ring the changes from the last sitting, I tried to catch him looking to the side. Tom does have a very florid complexion so it is always a challenge to keep the effect of the light working within the correct values whilst still showing his high colour.

Oil sketch of Tom

After many months away, it was great to join the old crowd that meet weekly at the Scout hut. This was my efforts at the end of the session.
