Arthur and Marilyn unfinished
Coloured pencil on grey card. Despite the date, this is actually quite an old piece that was never finished! So much time has passed and really felt I couldn't add any more to it! Still thought it looked decent so decided to upload it, hope you like it despite this!

Natural Beauty - Marilyn Monroe
Coloured pencil on CS2 board. Another past portfolio piece. Such an amazing woman and an inspiration.

Marilyn on the beach
Coloured pencil on blue card. Another past portfolio piece, this is probably my own favourite work so far, and is rather special to me. So thank you to all in DA who have inspired me to draw again.

6. My amazing DA journey continues and after connecting with more artists in just five days, than in all of my previous five decades, it struck me just the incredible power of such a platform and the creative community it is nurturing. It has also blown my mind the sheer size of this community. Not a local gathering this, but what I will always think of as a friendly global village (a bit like the Shire!). I have started to compile a list of the countries where I have made a connection and shared a personal contact with an individual artist from that country. This is quite a revelation for a relic like me and the shared work, creativity and positivity of these interactions is such a powerful and emotive feeling. Sweden, Costa Rica, Azerbaijan, Vietnam, Australia, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, United States, Poland, Serbia.... the list is just phenomenal. Perhaps this is all just a sad reflection of my own narrow life thus far, but hey, I have finally discovered a small world with a very big heart...
Have a great day and stay positive.       
Clint Eastwood - Pale Rider
Coloured pencil on CS2 board. From my past portfolio this is another portrait of one of my favourite actors. A common theme which runs through most of my work to this point.
