'Angel' SOLD

8" x 10" oil on gessoed board 
I think this has been the most challenging portrait that I have done in a while, but at last I am satisfied with it after a lot of modifactions. The reference photo I used was shot by Janine Simone, to view her photo blog, go to my favourite artists and click on her name.

'Rosy Cheeks' (available)

6" x 8" oil on canvas $65


I painted this sweet little girl yesterday but my internet was on the blink again so I'm posting her today. I have tried to stay loose and see how fast I could paint, took me at least three hours until I had caught her likeness to my satisfaction. I really enjoy painting portraits and think I will do more in the future.

'Dusk' (available)

8" x 10" oil on gessoed board


I decided to do this painting with a painting knife in oils, apart from using tons of paint, it was quite a challenge and different from my usual daily paintings, I like using a knife with acrylics as they dry fast so you can get loads of texture quickly and put layer upon layer and control the blending of the paint layer underneath. I'm not sure whether I like it or not as all the colours blended more than I wanted, I'm undecided.
I have also posted one of my larger acrylic paintings so you can see what I mean. Top image is acrylic and measures 19" x 24"

This antique tea glass I found many years ago in an antique shop and has travelled around Europe with me through many a move.

I thought that I would paint another painting with my bowl and apple as it was an interesting subject to paint.

'Red on Red' SOLD

This one was enjoyable to paint after tweaking yesterday's man on the doorstep. It's a funny shaped bowl I think it might have once been an inset for another bowl because it has a very small base.

This Spaniard having a relax on his front door step is a typical scene here, sometimes you see women sitting on wooden chairs in front of their houses surveying the world go by and chatting with the neighbours.
