Night Comes Oil study on canvas board 5 x 7 inches SOLD
A covering of snow blankets the fields. Nightfall and all is quiet and muffled
with a comforting glow from the late evening sky.
These winter scenes are inspired by photographs taken some years ago. A small sketch of basic shapes was used as a reference but then the photograph was put away.
I wanted to give an abstract impression of the scene to capture light and essence of place.
Painting daily has given me a wealth of experiences to share. I am now into my second year of the Daily Paintworks challenge and I look forward to adding more images on this Blog. Writing daily about my work has made me stop and think about my paintings. When I am working I don't really think of anything as I am so wrapped up in the journey. Time can pass without me noticing and bedtime is often in the early morning hours.
However, posting the images on-line needs me to talk about my art. I try to give viewers an idea of what the piece means to me as well as something about the place and
process. I receive messages from around the world now and it is really encouraging.
Thank you to all my followers.
