Number 3 of my thistle paintings, stage 1. It’s great to work on several painting together one can get a real creative flow going, stopping and starting can be so counter productive.
Yesterday I posted the first stage of the number 1 of a triplet of paintings inspired by thistles. I have 2 in progress now, here is progress on the first and stage one of the second,
I have been so busy with finishing commissions and doing things related to Cloudhopper Gallery that I have not been in the Park much lately but when I did get there on a sunny Saturday in March I snapped these runners, part of a weekly run which takes place there.
I decided to abandon the last painting I posted on my blog and covered it with blue tinted primer to be reborn as something else. It will form part of a trio of works inspired by a patch of thistles in Hotham Park.Here is the first stage of one of them.
