In the park today i tried to sketch the willows bright in the autumn sun but, alas this does not do them justice.
I really can’t make up my mind whether this is finished. It has got to the stage where the temptation is to continue titivating, adding a stroke here or a bit more just there. This can mess up a painting. On balance I think I will let it rest for a few weeks as things…
I am enjoying monoprinting so much, using images from my Hotham park sketchbook as a staring point. here is a print of willows found in the winter garden.
I have been busy working on a commssion so have had no time to visit Hotham Park recently but today we went for a walk in the crisp air and found this blaze of colour in the Winter Garden.
I thought this painting was finished but decided it needed more work. Among other things I have added the blackbird and I can already see I will have to do a bit more work as he stands out as the star just a bit too much!
