Did this Snake and Ladder painting a couple of years ago. It was a bit of an experiment but someone liked it and had it straight away. I don’t remember all the paintings I’ve done, and I’m not the kind of person who makes a list, so there are pictures out there in the world that you might own….
You glitter and gleam in the light,
Swimming in your tank,
How I wish,
You could be free…
After a bad night’s sleep I decided to go to Etruria Artists this morning. One of the group suggested drawing a wise animal. My hubby drew a fox, I decided to draw an owl. I wanted to do something colourful and more abstract than I would usually do. This is based on my handbag, though it’s not a copy, more inspired by my bag. I think he’s more cheeky than wise!
A recent painting that has gone to a good home. I love painting animals and people. I think I’m reasonably good at capturing a close image of what I’m trying to portray. I’m not a super or photo realist, but I try and be as accurate as I can be.
Next year I would like to do some more commissions, and they can be of just about anything. I enjoy the challenge.
This beautiful boy Collie dog came into the gallery today. I asked for permission to take his photo, I may use it to do a painting of him. He was very lively, we gave him some treats and soon he was shaking paws and rolling over to have his tummy tickled. I loved his fox colour. I think it’s called red?
He was a little nervous with all the noise and chatter around him, but soon calmed down.
Now you appear,
Myth from camouflage.
Light shines through you,
Pulses across the stars.
You may not be real,
But you are to me.
More done, I’m having a rest now…. I am enjoying doing this but I want to get the mane right, the photo I’m working from is quite high definition, I want to get as much detail in as I can without overdoing it. It’s about A4 size and acrylic on canvas.
