Where rabbits run   Oils on canvas board  5 x 7 inches  £ 46  $ 60

Hedgerows make wonderful playgrounds for rabbits.
Holes mark their underground warrens.

or by email in UK)

Studio Musings...

The first of some smaller pieces.
It was overpainted on a warm under-painting.

Scrubbed on colour makes a hedgerow...loose and gestural.

New studies drying on the easel.

Underpaintings using a rub-out technique...

The work on the left is demonstrating a rub-out on a white gessoed board.
Using Burnt Sienna and Phthalo Blue I scrubbed the hues onto the surface.

A rag wrapped around my finger shows how some 
of the paint removed creates a possible land/seascape. 

 The work may evolve into something
totally different but for now it gives me ideas.

The smaller piece on the right has soft violet over orange for a sky.
Dark green using a mix of Phthalo Blue, Winsor Yellow and Burnt Sienna
has been scrubbed in to suggest trees and shrubs.

Most of my work is started like this.
However, it may finish quite differently.

I do like variety.
