1652 Elixier

16" x 16" oil on panel

Here's a looser painting using both brush and palette knife, it is featuring a large copper jug that I bought recently at a general sale auction along with a couple of other copper and brass items.

 I've got a few paintings on the go at the moment that are just waiting for me to finish them, I think I prefer getting one finished before going on to the next one as I lose momentum and interest, but sometimes I have to wait for the paint to dry before carrying on, the disadvantage of oil paint. I have a drawer full of acrylics that I might dig out and use sometime, they sure dry fast.

I've just noticed that my keyboard is covered in paint spatters, I'm a messy painter I must admit, my hubby always laughs at my painted face when we stop for lunch, and most of my clothes have paint on them somewhere too ;)

1651 Pears & Friends SOLD

6" x 6" oil on panel
It's a long time since I've painted a small still life and it was really refreshing after so many large complex ones. I scratched into the gesso to get this interesting surface to paint on, then I used palette knife  to scrape into the surface paint  to show it up more.

1649 Cocktail Collection SOLD

11" x 14" oil on panel
I'm in the middle of 2 intricate paintings that are taking ages to complete, hence a looser one for my mental healths sake!  I had to paint quite fast on this one as the flower and the leaf began to wilt quite quickly, I'm loving painting looser with the aid of a palette knife too and it's surprising how much more paint I use this way.
