Frosty Fields and Winter Sunrise

Frosty Fields and Winter Sunrise (12″ x 12″ acrylic on canvas board)

A fun experiment using cool and warm colours.  I can’t say I’ve used a combination of peach and mint green in the same painting before but I rather like it!

Brussels and Leeks

Brussels and Leeks (25cm x 30cm oil on board)

Green.  Yellow-green, Blue-green, Viridian…..

Rather ambitiously I decided to challenge myself to create a painting comprised almost entirely of green and to mix those greens rather than use greens out of the tube.  This did turn out to be quite tricky – both to paint and to photograph for this blog.  Let’s say it was a learning experience, which I guess is what it’s all about!

They say, incidentally, that frost is good for leeks and sprouts as it makes them sweeter.  They should be delicious this Winter then as we’ve had heavy frost (and some snow) here for what seems like ages.
