Slow River, Oil 6 x 8 inches
I filmed the entire painting of this one, with the intention of posting it speeded up on Youtube, if I can figure out how to do it! If my brain CAN figure out how to, I'll post here with a link.
Incidentally, I've been asked SO many times about my DVD. The lie on my business card that says 'Instructional DVD available', will, I have every faith, soon be a true statement. Moves are afoot and in the not too distant future, it WILL be available! Actually, it's just a cunning marketing ploy on my part so that you are all GASPING to get hold of one. Sometimes, I think I'm too clever for my own good..........
Winter's Carpet, Oil 6 x 8 inches
When Autumn is done and winter sets in, the gloriously thick carpet of russet leaves adorns the woodland floor, and is delicious to paint. Even in a painting this size, I have used lots of palette-knife work on top of my big-brush foundation, almost sculpting the paint to give the illusion of leaves.
These two paintings will be in my Devon exhibition next month.
