Monday Plein air painting.

My good friend Russ Holland called me at 3 and said he was up at Les`s and would I like to come up and do some painting.  Tea and painting on Les`1s new Patio was amazing.

St Mawes

I painted this back in early 2000 and lost it. I probably went over it so I`ve just re painted it. It will make a great card.

Little Houses

Well I have relentlessly continued with this although after every brushstroke I keep thinking Is this really working? and so far it is paying off. Nearly done....

There comes a time in every aspiring young painters life when you just have to take a few hours off and just let yourself play.   Its very refreshing and reminds you that there are unconscious forces at work.!

Little Houses

What is it with oils?.   I love working in oil but it can be love hate. I love working in acrylic too. But yesterday I really struggled with an attempt do do an oil of the view from Kiffs and made a complete mess. So I wiped it off and started this really just to save the day, and today I`ve been refining it. Its a small 30x40  cm canvas . It`s simple but to my eyes lovely.

Porthleven Still Life

I`ll probably decorate the Jug next,

Porthleven Still Life

Been trying to resolve this oil today. I`ve actually improved it. A couple more sessions hopefully will improve it some more. It`s very black isn`t it! Probably not one of my best paintings but you have to go where the music takes you.
