Misty Mountains

Father Christmas brought me some Atelier Interactive acrylic paints. This is painted following a lesson from Arnold Lowrey in his book "Painting with Acrylics".

It is clear that I have much to learn about this medium.

Approx 14" by 11" on Bockingford paper.

The Workman

This is the final version of this painting. It now measures 16" by 20" painted with W&N designer gouache on Arches NOT paper, prepared with black acrylic.

I'm really very pleased with the changes and the better paint has made this really stand out.

The third and final picture for submission to the RWS show.

Blue Stripes

This is the final version of an image painted twice before. This attempt takes account of the feedback previously received, including the bendy shadows.

It measures 20" by 16" on Arches NOT paper, and is another work short-listed for the RWS exhibition in February 2009.

Holly in Snow

This was a fun exercise at Art Club last week. It is approximately 22 cms by 24 cms and based on a reference photograph.

It verges on the abstract, but turned out quite well, IMHO.

Arts and Science Park, Valencia

This is 20" by 16" painted on Arches NOT paper. The reference was an excellent photograph posted in the RIL on Wet Canvas by Splishsplash.

It come out better than expected. At present it is a leading contender for submission to the RWS exhibition in Feb 2009.
