Back to straight realism for a while, I might intersperse these with a few experimentations, just to please myself!
I shall be winging my way back to Europe at the beginning of the New Year, looking forward to being back home again and having a dedicated room to paint, peace and quiet with no interruptions from little people and pets. Not that I don't love em but granny duties are over for awhile I can really concentrate on my art career and make plans and be deliciously self indulgent as well.

I'm enjoying playing with my still lifes, this one is on roughly gessoed panel and painted with a brush and palette knife, the mandarin to the left is unrecognizable dressed in gold foil and the lemon decided to join the background.

Another experimental piece, this time I gessoed the panel and then scratched into it to make this effect and then painted the fruit onto the surface. I like the resulting painting, it's different as they say!

Another loose one, a combination of brush and palette knife. The colourful leaves I found on our patio and I thought that they would be a good combination with this lovely mango, that echoed their hues perfectly.
