That last couple of weeks I have completed these two drawings and this painting:
'Relaxing After A Hot Day'
watercolour and gouache
24 x 31cm
This scene was a joy to paint. Having found a lovely tree (possibly Birch?) over hanging the river Marden, 5 minutes walk from my back door, I knew I just had to paint it. I took a brisk walk during twilight and came back with a collection of photographs that would inform all of the composition. Add to that some reference of me posing in a waistcoat and trousers, and I couldn't fail.
|'The Owl and the Pussy-cat'|
I'm underway with the painted version of this sketch. It will be my latest nursery rhyme illustration for Art Of The Imagination
|'Summer Evening Walk'|
These likely lads will soon be painted quite large (39 x 51cm) for Galerie Daniel Maghen
Don't forget, this Saturday and Sunday are the last two days of my open studio at Avant-Garde Art Supplies, Calne, SN11 0HY. Click here for details
