I absolutely love work that is half “finished”… there is a true confidence in it, as it’s quite a skill to know “when to stop”. These perfectly half drawn ladies are the work of UK based artist Mark Demsteader.

Self-Portrait by Georgia O'Keeffe. I'd never seen this one. She took a lot of care to record her wrinkles, and I love the gray flower looming behind her, all that spiral energy.

The painter says his intention is “to explore the infinite possibilities of life, in search of a balance between reality and imagination.”

Nunzio Paci’s Graphite and Oil Paintings Merge Nature and Anatomy D-u-u-u-u-de! (and I don't usually say, "Dude".) This is wonderfully detailed work using one of my favorite concepts, "amalgamations of plants and animals".


Can use the composition idea for your 3 final design ideas. Interesting to divide up the image across more that one piece? Final piece could still be a collection of these

Map and Celestial Star Chart Portraits by Ed Fairburn -confused face on map, where do i belong?

WHY: I like the way the top one uses the lines of the map to create tone and how the others use circles to add interesting tone. This is similar to my chosen artist Akumu Kurai.
