Hello and welcome to my Blog.
The view from my studio.
A tranquil scene on a sunny day in May.
I am laughing as I write today.
My last post was a cheerful one about
two little pictures which were easy to make.
Now I remember my Mother’s words...
“pride comes before a fall”.
Today I have two paintings on the table in my studio.
They have been worked and scraped down, reworked
and left to dry as I decide what to do with them.
Nothing was going well...
It was just ‘one of those days’.
I will share them with you...
A 20x20 inch canvas.
This was the first stage.
I was ‘stuck’ and needed to experiment.
Wondering where to go with it,
I added more colour...
and now it looks worse.
There are too many bits and pieces.
I do like the blue at the top and maybe the pinks,
but the yellow and green will have to go.
When it is dry I shall rework it.
Next I was battling with this one
a 16 x 16 inch canvas.
It was similar to the first painting.
I added more colour and now it looks messy.
The yellow and green are not right.
Maybe I will bring the blue back and take away
the yellow and green when it is dry.
The best option is to leave them for a while
and move on to something else.
Calm is restored..
On a positive note I have another painting
which seems to be going reasonably well.
It has a sense of calm.
I shall resist fiddling with it.
Oils and cold wax on 24 x 24 inch canvas.
Until next time...
Thank you for visiting.
