Between Showers Oils on gessoed 140lb paper 11 x 7 inches £ 105 $ 130
Nature's tapestry on the rolling hills.
Sun brings out the colours after the rain.
I completely missed writing my blog yesterday as you might have noticed.
I was engrossed in household jobs and forgot.
To make up for that I will post two in one today.
Autumn Glow Oils on gessoed 140lb paper 8 x 12 inches £ 106 $ 130
Remembering autumn and a view up a green lane.
The track on the left leads my eye towards the warm horizon.
Light in the sky is echoed on the ground.
I have been making a group of studies on this watercolour paper.
The gessoed surface is really good for rough brush strokes giving the
impression of twiggy tree tops and clumps of grass
. Dimples in the paper catch and hold the oils.
Quickly painted I try not to tighten up and fiddle.
It is very tempting to add just a few more marks and then regret it.
(Both paintings are available on DailyPaintworks.com
or an email to me for UK collectors).
