Another week is past and gone, and it's Friday already, which means it's time for Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin.
I have another journal page to share for Art Journal Journey, architecture.
I used a photo of a street near where I lived as a kid, in the middle of Jack the Ripper Land, when the houses, and especially the Church, always seemed to be so huge and sometimes threatening to me. After the war there were lots of gaps, or tall walls which had survived from bombed houses, and everything was blackened with soot, smoke and fire.
The background was painted in grey and black, using my scratchy brush. I added some blue and yellow patches to represent sun and sky.
And as I haven't been able to paint this week, I am re-showing a piece made some time back, where I copied one of Modigliani's portraits - it's a picture of a poet from 1915. I used ink, water colours and pastels for the face, and acrylics and pastels for the background.

Thanks to those who sent well wishes, my pneumonia is slowly getting better, for which I am very thankful.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
