It`s 1000 degrees centigrade outside. Folk are bursting into flames by the second but thanks to my trusty ceiling fan (probably stolen from a pub at some point by the last owner of this house along with the pool table that used to grace my now studio) I`m not even melting! But they say huge storms are on their way so that`ll be fun!

Here`s the inked and coloured versions of the pencil panel from my last post. During the three years I was pretty much bed ridden (double hiatus hernia) I started re-reading and studying Mr.Leonardo Da Vinci. His notes on colour perspective greatly helped with this image above. I strongly suggest any fellow artists should study the "Great Master" as even today his discoveries and thoughts can teach us so much. And if you had the kind of art teachers I was blessed (!) with then you`ll need all the help you can get!!!

Kev O'neil! Just spooted it! Thanks for making me feel a little cleverer than I probably am.

You`re welcome! There was no way we could have done this story without a nod to Mr.O'Neil!
