Psilocybe semilanceata

Psilocybe semilanceata, commonly known as the liberty cap. I made these from Fimo clay for Christmas and made them into necklaces. A fun experience, turned out quite nice. Too old to eat them now! 

cats women and sketching

My beautiful Catalina the british grey cat. This painting went a bit wrong, again painted using Wacom Intuos and digital pen and Corel painter software ,which is about as near to real paint as you'll find in the world of software. 
A quick painting I quite like this, prefer it to neat stuff. Painter and Wacom digital painting.

Practice sketch ..... um.. yeah crap on the right. 

Somewhere in the Lakes

Somewhere up the Lakes, don't ask where, I am rubbish with lake identification or mountains. It could be Wastwater, but i crammed the mountains in the back too close together; now it's imaginary lake scene.
Its really gone terribly wrong, looks like paint by numbers, nearly as bad as the board painting which looks like a Jack Vettriano and I dont mean that in a good way! . Cheesy it is... No 22 fill with Azure .. ha!

Northern Love - The North South divide - a bit of fun for my mates down south in the big smoke. Acrylic on canvas, based on the I-Spy series and Harland Millers Penguin book series. 

Alain de Botton, writes beautiful books about philosophy and also emails me back - He gets a painting for being the loveliest multi millionaire I know :)
