Sometimes it is fun working a painting a bit more.

Tomorrow I shall re-visit some larger pieces.

A return to abstracted pieces this week.
I love moving oils around, sculpting the paint with my brush.

Studio Musings...

The long view...

A narrow piece of board was ideal for this tall study.
Cropped from a previous painting. 

  Some of the purples and blues with a hint of red hues 
on the tree line were already on the board. 

 I played around with oils, sculpting with my brush to 
give an impression of twilight on a lake.

The turquiose reflections give a punch to the scene.


Further Musings...

Studio Musings...

I had a decision to make today...
Gardening or easel.

The outcome was easy.  Easel.
Gardening can wait until tomorrow.

Whippet by my side, I enjoyed several hours moving oils around.
Now there are five paintings drying on my table.

Studio Musings...

This is an example of returning to a painting to work a little more.
Many of my small pieces are finished in one session and this originally was one of these.

Until...I decided to add more oils. .  
It is quite heavily textured now and I like the finished painting.

A mix of brush and a little knifework made these marks.



A new painting for my Artfinder gallery.

Up high on the Roaches in the Peak District I found this freshwater pool.

Studio Musings...


I am quite amused by this painting.
It was made some time ago in a landscape format.

Twice it has been cropped for a new look.
This must be the final cut or nothing will remain!

I like the effect of just shapes and colour..

Fresh start.


Bright new day   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper  6 x 6 inches   £ 45   $ 60


Hazy start to the day with sun sparkling through.

Studio Musings...

Oils on paper.
It seems an unlikely mix.
However, when the dimpled 140lb watercolour paper
is twice gessoed on both sides it becomes quite robust.

The surface is ideal for special effects like scraping back to reveal little
textured patches of colour retained in the dimples.  A painter's dream.

There is no need to frame behind glass either as a coat of varnish protects 
the oils in the usual way.  This way there are no glass reflections to spoil the view.
