A big change from the winter greys.
This was exciting to paint and captured my imagination.

Although it is a winter scene, the colours are warm and cheerful.

Summer greens.
Not an easy choice as a painting can soon resemble a bowl of pea soup.

Varying the hues and tonal values helps to keep the work interesting.
The dimples in the paper also add a sense of texture.

This painting began as a landscape format but I wasn't happy.
I decided to crop each side to make a square.

The sun is the focus of the work and it is more dramatic now.

A return to oils on paper.
The dimpled surface is a delight as the oils 
brush over and leave interesting marks.

Gesso protects the paper and hardens the surface.
The painting is given a coat of re-touching varnish when dry.

Framing without glass is also possible.

Spring is on the way and more flowers are appearing in our garden.
Gradually the colours are returning to our landscape.

Time to adjust my oil palette.
