Keeping it simple

I’m doing some work at a friend’s house (decorating – a brush is a brush, right?) and each time I go in I am surprised and pleased by a small drawing she bought from me years ago. It’s just a simple oil pastel sketch and there’s a freshness to it that often gets lost by overworking. I did many studies of this subject, based on a photo. I’m tempted to go back to it, it does have links to what I’m doing now, in my head anyway.

I had to photograph it with my phone and it’s under glass, but I felt like sharing, so please excuse bad photo quality.Photo0141
