Melon and grapes 1 (6″ x 6″ acrylic on board)
Melon and grapes 2 (6″ x 6″ acrylic on board)
Here are a couple more still life paintings based on some of the contents of my fridge. What could be better? Paint the subject and then get to eat it afterwards! (Although I may not try it with sprouts…)
I plan on painting some landscapes in the early New Year but for now I am taking a break for Christmas, although the sketch book will be close at hand.
Tomatoes and basil (6″ x 6″ acrylic on board)
Given the pretty dreary weather I thought my best chance of painting colour would be to tackle a still life or two, More to come but this is the first. Still a small format ( 6 inch square) but in acrylics this time. Who knew that raiding the fridge could be so much fun?
Long wait to get home (6″ x 8″ oil on board)
It’s been pretty overcast and gloomy out there, although that doesn’t seem to have put off the shoppers at Stamford’s weekly market. The other day I caught a quick glimpse of weary shoppers waiting for the bus – and here’s my small oil sketch. They do all look rather morose – maybe the weather didn’t help! Working with a limited palette is all well and good – and I have found lots of ways to mix brown and grey for this one! – but I am starting to hanker for something a little more colourful.
