WOMAN AGAINST A GRAFFITI WALL



Bonjour, 
For anyone who's interested, I'm back to my favourite medium - drawing.
Many years ago in a seedy suburb in a big city, I saw a woman leaning up against a wall covered in graffiti. 
Neither the woman nor the wall looked anything like this - only the drawings of the penises did, but one sees them everywhere and they always look the same, almost as if they’ve all been done by one person. 
Anyway, that’s where the idea for this drawing came from. If you like you can see more of my erotic drawings at the link below. (But please don't click on the link if you don't like this kind of thing). Merci.

THE LION IN WINTER

Well, the lioness in winter, I suppose, so as not be confused with the 1968 movie that starred Peter O'Toole, etc.
So, having survived jihadists and snow in Amman and Istanbul, here we are back in M├ęzin where winter still reigns supreme.
In an attempt to remain sane, and as a reason to get out of bed everyday, I'm back to painting regularly, having decided to concentrate on three main subjects: Animals, Portraits and Nudes.
If you want to see how I've treated these subjects before, here are some links:
