Study of eyes

"Study of eyes" by Hilary J. England, Conte on paper

I have been studying certain body parts that I find fascinating, and you can never be a true master of-- such as the eyes. I want to study them from all different angles, all ages, etc. ❤️

Study of shadows and light

"Autumn dusk: study of light and shadows" by Hilary J. England, oil on canvas, 8" x 11" 2017

It's been a while since I have been outdoors painting. I was clobbered by an MBA math course plus extra teaching gigs, and poof, just like that, 8 weeks evaporated from my life. Not cool. But, that's all over now, and time to throw myself back into my work more fully, even with approaching holidays and new year. No difference to me. Don't get me wrong, I am no grinch, but I need to do my work to feel happy, so that is my priority.

This little painting made me happy. The sinking light was wonderful and peaceful to behold. The cool shadows and the warmer, glowing light just set my soul at peace ❤️
