Painting

I am currently working in my studio with renewed enthusiasm.

I’ve had a series of paintings on the go for several weeks, working on each as I felt inspired. These paintings are called Bluebells #1 & 2. Β They are acrylic on board and I really like the transparency of the layers of paint. These are my favorites from the paintings Β I’ve just completed, so I thought I would show you them first.

I have been itching for quite a while to do some painting. It has been over shadowed by admin, trying to earn money and making things to sell. But my itch has won and to my greatest of pleasure I have set myself up a still life!

Another problem I think is that I’ve always used student quality acrylics and at last I have bought myself a trial set of Golden acrylics and am amazed at the amount of pigment in them and the brightness of colours!still-life-1 still-life-2Scale and proportion are difficult but I think I’ve made a good start πŸ™‚
