Long Shadows

Oil on Board, 6 x 8 inches  SOLD

Well, I had to paint an Autumn one too!  When the sun shines on Beech Trees, the leaves look like orange and russet jewels, and as well as my 1" household brush, I used a lot of impasto dabs with three palette knives.  

"Three palette knives" I hear you say, with a vision of Edward Scissorhands.....yes, I've lost my favourite very thin knife that I love to use for such dabs and other effects.  So, I was seriously hampered, trying to use inferior wide palette knives.  I think I must have left it in the snow on one of my plein air sessions outside.  So, if you've found it, please hand it in to the nearest police station - no questions asked - you know there's a knife amnesty......

  2. Toutes mes félicitations ... Cette peinture est magnifique. Une merveilleuse harmonie de couleurs.
    Je comprends que votre couteau puisse vous manquer... Je serais bien maladroite de travailler avec des pinceaux qui ne me correspondent pas !... J'ose espérer que vous puissiez le retrouver ou vous faire la main avec un nouveau !
    Je vous souhaite une très joyeuse Saint-Valentin...
    Gros bisous

  4. Seems like we all agree: it is breathtaking! Amazing use of value and texture. I wonder what could have been different with your beloved missing knife. Could it be better than this? Nahhh...

  5. Ah, you're very kind Robie! You know what it's like when you have a favourite tool, it's just comfortable to use and you don't have to think too much, it just flows. I've ordered a replacement anyway - just hope it's similar to my old beauty...
