For a group show i'm taking part in I was asked to do one piece on the theme of intoxication. I decided to stick with a similar colour scheme as the fox and took the week off work to do it....I picked a simple idea and thought it'd be fairly straightforward...which was a bit daft in hindsight.

It has taken this week every day from morning till gone midnight to get 80% through and i'm still not happy...It needs more work, and perhaps the entire background needs to be darker. I'm at that hating everything stage which I just need to work through...I have yet to go over it with oils so I am hoping they will add the depth which I think it's lacking at the moment.

Here's some sneaky peeks anyway

I'm going to keep going tonight and perhaps tomorrow give my eyes a break and do something else.

Hope you all have an excellent weekend!

Oh my goodness. These are fantastic. I love the depth of colour and the detail.

Thanks Paola! I just went over it with Liquin before doing the oils and already I am much happier with it... Have to wait for it to dry now - excruciating!

It looks beautiful! I can't wait to see it when it's finished.
Oh - I recently saw Coraline and there's a theater scene that totally made me think of your work.

This painting is just the best! I love how the ripe poppy heads have been scored and are oozing their special sap. Well done!!!!
