Sacre Coeur

Today had a very busy day. Went to the Ham Art Group in the morning where painted this little sketch. Had a commission from the local Health Centre confirmed. Should start painting very soon after clarifying some technical details.
Will be applying for the Royal Academy Summer show this year. Just got the forms. Have to post them tomorrow to arrive before the dead-line.
Had a first painting lesson with two Russian speaking children. An enjoyable hour of colour fun. My daughter had a lesson of piano in exchange. So far it works well.

Greeting Cards

Recently I have been contacted by the tourist board of our borough. They want to offer their clients a range of my cards with local views. Now I am busy making them. Got a new printer yesterday. Epson with 6 ink heads. I'm thrilled with the results so far. Quality of prints is outstanding.
Another project on my agenda is a big commission from a local health centre. I am to create a calming local scene with the river Thames, boats and maybe some people in it. Here is one of the sketches I have made today in preparation for it.
