Loads of reaction to the penguins: all of it positive!  Really glad to get positive feedback as it’s always nervewracking to launch a new image on an unsuspecting public.  Felt a bit guilty about producing yet another penguin image, but why not explore a theme to its full potential?  After all, how many times did Monet paint his garden or Degas ballet dancers?  If they could do it so can I.  Degas said an artist  should spend at least a year on a single theme to fully explore its potantial. 

Spending next two days teaching, so posts may be a bit sporadic.

    OK, but didn’t Mrs Monet say by the end of the year “Oh no, not more damned waterlilies” (in French of course) or something like that.

    Luckily there are more species of penguin than waterlily (I imagine) so you’ve a way to go before we say “Enough!”

  2. I don’t know how many waterlily species there are, but there are are at least nine penguin species I have yet to sketch… Loads more scope!!
