All change.

Hello and welcome to my Blog.

My new oil paints arrived last week.

It is all change in my studio from
 landscape palette to abstract.

No more earth colours for a while.
I want to make abstract paintings in brighter hues.  

It isn’t always easy to change...I shall persevere.
It is easy to stay in a comfort zone 
using the same ones every day. 

I have had a canvas on the easel for some
 time going through changes. 
This means layering the oils scraping back 
and reorganising shapes.  I left it alone for a week 
to think about where I wanted it to go.

The base colours are dark so it is time to go brighter.  

This morning I used some of my new oils 
mixed with some cold wax medium.
I think I shall let it dry and put it away for a while.  
Here is the finished piece. 

‘Monday Morning’  
Oils and cold wax medium on canvas 24 x 36 inches

Another painting had a small change.
The lower middle part had some green added.
Oils on box canvas 30 x 30 inches. 

Green has a calming influence.
The piece is finished now and is a 
companion for the above work.  

I like a series of paintings.  
Here is a little one finished this morning.

‘All Change’  14 x 16 inches  
 Oils and cold wax medium on panel and frame.
The painted frame is part of the work. 

A good start to the week. 

Until next Monday,
Thank you for visiting.
