Personal Objects, Mark.

This is a 3 colour watercolour pencil rendering of two objects which sit at my desk, One is an amethyst which catches my eye every day and the other is a small brass buddah brought back from Cambodia as a gift from a friend.
Just another example of optical mixing whereby process yellow, magenta and cyan are used in layers to create a shimmering surface (well that's the idea)

Personal objects Simon

Well, for this exercise I collected together one walking boot, that carried me across the Himalayas, and over many welsh mountains, didnt leak once and caused me ,well very few blisters, my everyday old hake brush, that I have had for 25 years.. yes 25 years, a few pallet's I use everyday, couple of books on Hopper and Turner, topped off by a menthol stick that I use as a hangover cure.. couldn't fit wife kids and pets onto pile, but apart from that this is me sort of defined, well sort of my external life.
