The Old Ticker - a foray into Steampunk

Recently, someone was talking art with me, and said he'd love to see what I could paint in the Steampunk style.
After using my friend Google to be absolutely clear as to what Steampunk entailed, I searched on the free photo sites to find a photo I could use as a basis for a painting.

This is the resulting painting - painted on Bockingford paper, and one eighth of a sheet in size. Watercolour and Graphik Line Painters

The Old Ticker

This was an enjoyable foray into something different. You all know how I like to paint different .. :-)

One rose, fixed in memory.

Back in the garden that I left behind, was one of my favourite roses.
Before we left, I took some photos of it - and this painting was created from one of them. It's now fixed firmly in my memory, because I can see this painting, daily.

The rose is a David Austin - and the type is "A Shropshire Lad"

My painting is quarter sheet size - that's 15" x 11" --and is painted on Saunders Waterford 140lb rough paper.

Peachy Pink
