I have finished the malachite painting. I have been incentivised by the excellent hyper-realistic mineral artwork produced in recent times by Ксения (Ksenia) Левтерова, Leah Luten, Tama Higuchi and Stefanie Berens.

The malachite is from the Czar Mine, Bisbee, Arizona and an Andy Seibel specimen.

Watercolour and a touch of coloured pencil on paper. Painted with permission from Andy Seibel photo.

And here is the view from my “Art Studio”…
