Copacabana


Still using our Oz adventure as inspiration. This is based on an excellent reference photograph from John Atkinson. A nice memory of much warmer times.

Painted with Artisan water mixable oil paints on Daler Rowney Georgian oil paper, it measures approximately 16" by 12".

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.

Bella



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"

Crucially a limited palette of Cobalt Blue, Crimson, Arylamide Yellow Light and Titanium White was used.

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.

Abstracted hairy cow


The task at the Arun society today was to take the picture painted last week and produce a semi-abstract picture from it. Quite a fun exercise and it is interesting to look at the two paintings side by side.

This one measures approximately 16" by 12", painted in water mixable oils on oil paper, both from Winsor and Newton.
