Still practising with the Artisan water-mixable oil paints. This one measures approximately 12" by 8" and was painted from a photograph on Daler and Rowney Georgian oil painting paper. It was started at Lancing Art Club when I thought it was a hellebore. Shows how much I know about flowers.

Pod of Pelicans

Another painting inspired by our trip down under at the end of last year. Our friends took us to see the pelican feeding at The Entrance. They really are weird looking birds. This one measures approx 16" by 12" and was painted with Atelier Interactive acrylics on Winsor and Newton Galleria acrylic paper.

Meet Bella our doggie model at Art Club yesterday. This is still way more challenging than painting a human model, but fun all the same. The owners  quite liked the final version. Painted with hard and soft Royal Langnickel pastels on Winsor and Newton pastel paper. They measure approximately 11" by 8"

Light from Window

Good to be back to painting again. The brief for this one at Arun Art Society was to paint an interior with light streaming in through a window. It measures 12" by 15" and was painted with Conte hard and soft pastels on Sennelier pastel card. The rather moody atmosphere is quite fun.
