A view of the mountains in winter

A view of the mountains in winter, oil on card, 12 x 16 cm

This is almost the same view as A view of the mountains in April, from 2012.

It`s  been painted just beyond Palhoça. I was hoping to see snow in the distant peaks but it has all melted, alas.

Four more drawings from the weekend

 The errant pixie, Christ the Redeemer.

 Me on my deathbed

 Two pixies mug an American tourist.

The captured prince

Four more drawings from the weekend: the wickedness of the pixie continues to inspire me. The drawings are about 5 cm across their longest sides. I don`t use pencil, just ink so they can`t be corrected, and there is an element of risk.
