Tennessus castle

No painting for several days, we are packing and will spend the next night(in the Lord's chamber) in this medieval castle not far from Poitiers, which is in fact a lovely bed and breakfast;
it was a gift from my son Nicolas, for my last birthday.
After that we'll go on towards the Dordogne, to Sarlat, which is a very nice little city in the Perigord.
So I am sure we will enjoy those short holidays , even if apparently, it will be raining!

in progress , or in process?
This girl has been on my easel for a while, I changed a little her face, but she needs more improvments.

she doesn't seem to have any special worry,(see here) as I do!

rush hour

Acrylic on panel 8X9

Posted by PicasaThis is my version of Madison Avenue,New York City, last challenge of DSFDF.
I went just for once to NYC, in March, 1990, and it was chilly, the same kind of weather they had for this picture, I suppose.
It is my first cityscape, and expected it would be hard to have the buildings straight!And it is!
So, I thought afterwards it was wiser to crop
the sky...
