Above: ‘Spring Sunday’ oil on cradled panel, 30 x 30 inches– I have recently been working on a large still life painting filled with various subjects. All in all it took me 4 days to complete, working an average of 6hrs a day. It was very hard work and it took a lot of energy to finish. Moving forward, I will be working to the ‘less is more’ model! Regardless, I am very happy with how it came out. I think doing detailed ones like this every so often will be fine.
I had some little bits of paint left over on my palette. I don’t like to waste paint and these blobs would have dried before I painted my next piece. I have some 8 x 10 inch canvas boards around for occasions like this and decided to have some fun with Autumn bouquets and stripes. They are for sale, if anyone is interested. They sell for £250 each(unframed) which includes p&p within the UK and worldwide. Please contact me for further info.
I have been working on a new series of 8 x 8 inch studies on 1.44mm gessoed artist card. They sell for £200 each (unframed) and there is free shipping within the UK, £7 internationally. See more works HERE. I will be adding some landscapes soon. Email me at email@example.com for more info or to purchase.
