Study of a Rembrandt self portrait in oils

oil on canvas 46 x 36 cm

Almost at the end of the art challenge now with the art group "The Galway Pub Scrawl"
Todays theme was "master copy" and so I had the audacity to try my hand at a facisimile
of a Rembrandt self portrait...

Thanks for looking :)

Portrait of Paul Newman as Cool Hand Luke

oil on oilboard 46 x 36 cm

Still on the july challenge this days theme was, your favorite actor/actress in one of their roles or as a zombie. I can't say I actually have a favorite but I do very much like the movie "Cool Hand Luke" so 
I tried for a portrait of Paul Newman in that role.

Thanks for looking :)

Invisible to her prey.

Disposable ink pen on recycled paper 30 x 20cm

Here is the day five drawing from the drawing challenge, the subject was, "invisible"
I attached a digital border to this piece to contain the text as I thought the drawing
itself needed a bit of an explanation in order to satisfy the theme

Thanks for looking :)
