Deepest Blue

Deepest Blue II
Oil on wrapped canvas 7"x 5"
 
Its not often you get something for nothing so I was very happy to pick up these beautiful roses from our local mini supermarket for free. They were a little past their best but cutting the stems fairly short revives them and gives them a new lease of life.

I am really enjoying painting two versions of the same subject side by side.
I don't know why the colours are so sharp but you can see that the middle photo is more true to the original colours.

Zen Sheep

Sheep have such a wonderful way of looking so calm and collected as if they are meditating.

Pear and Grapes I and II / Pink Rose and Fruit

I was up two hours before work and really enjoyed a quiet house to paint, I think this could become a habit. I also found a few hours this evening, so its been a productive day.

Decadent Rose

With all the sun we've been getting the roses are just so decadent and laden with scent.

Pear and Plums

I have about three weeks painting time and as is the way with life, I find myself with less and less free time. So I've decided to paint two at a time.

The group exhibition is from the 5th to the 7th of September, its the New Artist Fair and its going to be held at The Old Truman Brewery.  http://www.newartistfair.com/sept-2014-summer-exhibition.html

All the artists taking part are now listed including yours truly. I am so looking forward to it, I love London, my spirits lift as soon as I get on the train heading there. The architecture and general vibes I find are very artist friendly.

Feeling Woolly

You know that feeling when you just don't feel sharp. What I need is a fresh Autumn morning with a  slight chill in the air, to walk in and think about how to move forward.

I used a photo taken by Kathleen Walker from Paint My Photo.

Cherry Love

I have found from experience that when I am in a ditch where my painting is concerned, sometimes a simple fruit painting goes a long way towards digging myself out.
