I had to make some portraits for an art lesson, but being crappy, never took the photos to paint/draw. But it was all ok, because Witless let me use some photos that he had taken, and I painted them. Finally I've got my art back from school (about a year and a bit later..), so here is a little bit of it.

This was a monochromatic study, so we took a primary colour then mixed it with white, greys and finally black, but I accidentally used pink as opposed to red for the first. Oh well. I quite like these, quite dynamic.

Also the background needs redoing to make it smooth. Also, I'm not sure why I'm yellow. Everyone was doing it in unrealistic colours so I just thought 'ok I'll do yellow'. I don't think that was a good idea, I should have just done it in true colour.

Ok awesome.

It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form." - Plato

I do rather like these, especially the second one of Dave. I'm afraid I'm not arty enough to give you any constructive comments.

I like! *high fives*

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.
