Two Roads (provisional title)

I started a new landscape in oils. It wasn’t going well so I mixed all the blue of the sky and the green of the land together, and just carved the composition out of it all with a rag. Worked quite well actually.

Two roads WIP #1

A couple of hours’ work turns this rough into something vaguely recognisable:

Two Roads WIP #2

Still some more work to do – particularly in the sky – the top left corner is what happens you get impatient with oils and try to glaze over paint which is still wet…

Website tweaks

Couple of updates to the website:

Presence added to paintings.
The full Sky Blue series now has a page of its own.
Portrait of a Scot added to drawings.
A couple of images removed from the ‘for sale’ section 🙂

It hasn’t moved though – it’s still at www.mcchrystal.net

The Power of the Atom

My first sculpture utilising found objects.

The Power Of The Atom

[EDIT] My career as a conceptual sculptor lasted only for the duration of April Fool’s Day, you’ll be pleased to know 🙂
