1775 Frosty Morning Walk

8" x 10" / 25 x 20cm acrylic on canvas panel

I dug out my acrylics for this one, so different to oils - pros and cons....  I ventured out first thing Monday morning to take a walk down my favourite country lane.  A hard frost had covered everything in ice crystals especially the grass on the verges and in the middle of the little used tarmacked road.  I walked past small farms and fields, a few houses some abandoned and falling to pieces, makes me wonder who had lived there and why they left.This cottage too, named Home Port Cottage, is uninhabited although there seems signs that somebody might be renovating it. We shall see the progress hopefully, in the coming year.

1772 Newly Laid (available)

8" x 10" oil on panel, framed available through my web-site

Oh those ellipses, they drove me crazy, every time I thought I had got them right and photographed the finished painting, out would jump a flaw in the painting, so back on the easel it went for corrections!

 I think that I'm going paint a series of 8 x 10's next, as most have sold at the last exhibition, although I'm really itching to paint some more landscapes, maybe I'll just do both, who knows, I may change my mind again and see what really excites me most.
