Woodland Path

I've painted this scene before but wanted to do another sketch as I had paint still on the palette.

Brittany Broad Walk

6x6 Oil on board
It's a great feeling to walk along broad woodland paths surrounded by dazzling golden dancing droplets of sunshine. I've walked Yvon's woods for a number of years now and have only once come across another person other than Yvon or a close friend. It's so peaceful and tranquil. I love the place.

On Golden Pond

I started this some time ago and decided against the subject matter and put it to one side. As I've painted a few ducks recently, I thought I'd re-visit and finish it off. Knowing me, I'll continue to tinker with it.

This is the larger version of the small study I painted earlier in the year. I enjoyed the freedom of painting larger and may even go bigger as this particular scene isn't out of my system yet.

While dashing around London to follow my son in the marathon a few years ago, this starlet caught my eye as she was being photographed going into the BAFTA awards. I stopped and took a picture. She must have thought I was official because she smiled for another.
This is my first attempt at a portrait.
