Six Sketchbook Drawings

I threw away an old scanner at the beginning of this year – I bought it in 1999 and I could only use it because I have Linux operating systems on my computers and they are unbelievably backwards compatible.  Anyway when I started to scan more of my coloured pencil drawings I found to my intense chagrin that the old scanner had reproduced the colours far better!  I suppose I could edit all the newer images but this seems a rather onerous task.  Experimenting with the scanner software settings might be the answer though.

Here are three pencil drawings I scanned last year with the old machine. They are not particularly brilliant works as I used to habitually draw while waiting for trains and appointments etc..



Painting: Nude In A Landscape 2 (The Church)

This painting, started in 1975-1976, was originally in landscape format; I changed it to portrait and then heavily repainted it, although keeping as many of the original lines as possible.
