Morning Glory

SOLDThe strength of colour of the foliage took my breath away and I knew I had to paint them.

Touch of Gold

Image
SOLD I have had another go at this scene which I first painted some time ago but was never satisfied with. I'm particularly happy with the temperature and warmth...not always easy to accomplish with greens and yellows. I'm also pleased with the foreground (palette knife) and overall composition. I may yet add a little more foliage but hopefully I'll resist the temptation. 

Heading North

Image
SOLD I caught this view from the passenger seat as we drove north a few weeks ago. Bev is to the right and the steering wheel to the left. It was a brief window of opportunity as a second later the road dipped and trees obscured the view. I've seen a few industrial scenes of late that I've liked the colour of and want to paint.

Safe Waters

This is a French harbour but I no longer remember where it was. This is another one of those scenes that I will paint time and time again without any of them looking the same.

Banksy

The Pond

The scene is the pond in Yvon's woods in Brittany...a place I always visit and sit on the makeshift bench to have a quiet moment or two. It's also a place that I will paint time and time again.
Still trying to find a good price to replace the lens I broke.
