Rita Petite prototype crop by Azul-Seahorse
Rita Petite prototype crop
I did this painting form the sketch that is somewhere at the back of my gallery, and originally I used the cheap student paints which faded and Rita's face turned green, It was annoying me sitting around looking sorry for itself so I gave it a quick repaint, also the proportions were all wrong she had a very long neck which I shortened and her legs just didn’t look right, It is also a pretty poor likeness.
What I am pleased with is I seem to be getting the hang of mixing the colours right for blonde hair, I also must add that the people in the background look better faded.

Hot rod couple Preliminary Sketches by Azul-Seahorse
Hot rod couple Preliminary Sketches
A sketch and a rough painting of something that I am working on, I haven’t decided on a background yet and I have changed the girls skirt for jeans.

My car exhaust has been blowing and making a sporty growl for a couple of weeks and then it got louder so I got some exhaust repair gum and tape to botch it up with, on closer investigation it has snapped off at the flexible joint, which is part of the section that contains the Catalytic converter, OUCH! big expense I then find that the Anti roll bar has rusted through and is about to snap so that is now double the expense, on top of that a water pipe burst outside my house and I ended up underneath the car laying in a stream of water.  I am however getting the parts off E-bay and going to fix it myself (or try to, the car that is not the burst pipe Thames Water have fixed that). hopefully save myself a bit of cash.
Also I found out that and old friend had died that I hadn't seen for Eighteen years and I was angry at myself for not keeping in touch with him.

On a happier note.......
I saw the Queen today, I was on my way home from work on my bicycle and went to the shop to get some bits for dinner (salad if you are wondering) and I noticed a large group of people near the entrance to the railway station (Reading General). I Did my shopping came out from the shop and headed for home only to find my route blocked by a large number of Police who had also stopped all the traffic. A lot more people many of whom were standing in the middle of the dual carriageway holding phones up, I didn't have a clue what was going on so had to ask what was happening, "The Queen" was the reply the guy I asked seemed shocked that I didn't know, so I parked my bike dug out my Kodak point and shoot and managed to get the camera switched on as she came past, I did get a photo of her arm doing the regal wave as her car went by, for a change something was happening and I had a camera there to record it, not really a great photo though.

Jim, stopping by to thank you for visiting my DA page.  And I just read your profile and browsed your gallery.  Let me know when you upload your bike photos.  I'd love to see them.  My daughter belongs to a bike club and she restores vintage bikes.  Also, I too write.  You should upload some of your work, maybe an excerpt from the screenplay you're working on.  Or maybe it is on here and I just haven't found it.  I'm new to DA and still trying to maneuver my way around.  Have a great UK day:)
