The Skeleton in my closet

Ok, he's not IN my closet - he's beside it - and I've been trying to paint him all month. With varying degrees of success. The first attempt was in charcoal, which caused some rather sever smearing problems:

Then, set up number 2, which wansn't bad technically - but I was hoping for the effect of Mardi Gras, and got something resembling a protest poster instead:

So I changed the set up all together - I like the look, now I just need to find some time to paint it. That shouldn't be a problem in about... oh... 4 days.

Coming up - An extra special treat for all my loyal readers! (Because I know how much you love surprises).
Watch this space!

    Hello Susan,

    I love your work, especially this one of the skeleton. I'm quite into art myself but have no experience, what advice would you give a student artist?

    Ohhh - another Adsett!

    A lot of my advice would depend on what you were interested in (realism? pop art? abstract art?) and what you wanted to do (gallery shows? illustration? graphic novels? animation?)

    drop me an email through my website: www.susanadsett.com and let's chat!
