Today was a good day at the office.
Sometimes there are days when my
pictures almost paint themselves.
This was an improvement on yesterday’s work
which was a disaster. Three canvases had to be
scraped down and set aside for re-working when dry.
I wanted to show you these two little oil studies
which behaved well and were a joy to make.
They are both oils and cold wax medium
on 8 x 8 inch vinyl panel.
I think the success came from painting quickly
and resisting the temptation to fuss.
Bold strokes were laid down and left.
A few scribbles in the wet paint
revealed the colours beneath.
They are bright, happy little pictures
and remind me of a seaside holiday.
Until next time...
Thank you for visiting.
