Yesterday I published the first print of ‘Spring in the park”. I managed to get two other prints from the inking, one with an added blue sky (lots of lovely messing with fingers), and then I overworked with oil pastels. I rather like these two!
After two weeks away I’m back to work in earnest as my September exhibition is approaching at alarming speed. First day back was a mountain of washing, gardening, wouldn’t it be great if we could turn the plants off like the fridge and get them to start again when we get back, as well as…
The copper beeches have turned that wonderful dark mahogany colour and the greens are taking on that dark summer hue. The first stage of this painting is in acrylic but I think I will finish it in oils. I’m trying to get as much done as possible before we go away.
This afternoon I attacked this painting again and this is the result.There is still a bit more to do but It has got to the stage where I will have to be careful not to overwork.
