Welcome to the new mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Art.

I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two principal sites - my blog (where I talk about my work and pay tribute to artists who excite me) and my Yahoo! Group (where you can join my mailing list, read my stories and see my latest pictures).


There's also a link to a small gallery of my work here (last updated Aug 2016).
If you have problems with the link read this notice.


T
hank you for your interest and support.

Workmen and builders

I came across this picture about a year ago and it really grabbed me. There's some fakery going on but I find the face and neck line exceedingly interesting. Builders and workmen are one of my long time fascinations (along with Rugby Players, Sailors etc etc... ..). A classic 'mitchmen' image! When I was a teenager I spent a summer studying chaps like this on a building site near my home. They feature heroically in my Press Gang story (posted at the Yahoo Group).
I can't remember where I found this image but if the owner gets in touch I'll give a credit.
