Still with Limited Resources!

The big cats are on canvas, 50 x 70 cm, and the abstract is on board, 30 x 40 cm. Both are mixed media and experimental!

I am undecided on my next topic (nothing new there really) but am open to suggestions if anyone has any bright ideas?! I suspect there are thousands of inspired people out there just waiting to set me a challenge! Be happy!

Abstract on Board, mixed media, 30 x 40 cm.
Big Cats on canvas, 50 x 70 cm, mixed media.

Limited resources.

These two pictures are both in oil paint but on loose canvas sheets, roughly 30 x 40 cm.  I have now run out of canvas of any description and I shall be hunting around for some boards to use until I can acquire some more canvas!  I hope you like these two characters.  Staying at home due to Covid 19 has its benefits and its downsides!  Running out of materials is a definite downside for me. but having time to paint is very welcome!


Lion Family

A good friend of mine sent me a black and white picture of lions and asked me to paint them – this is the result.  It’s painted in oils on 60 x 40 cm board.  I had to use board as I have been unable to find anywhere open to buy canvas from during this current phase of lock-down and I had quite a baptism of fire learning how to paint on board as it reacts so differently from canvas!  My friend has expressed satisfaction and superlatives over the result so I am more than happy!!  Let me know your views?

Portuguese Man

This painting emerged from an old sketch I found which I created many years ago.  While isolated in lock down I had a good rummage through old artworks and found him.  Although I could not remember his name, I do know he is a local resident.  The picture below is the end result, and I have since found out his name as he was recognised from the painting!  Wonderful!  It’s so lovely when people recognise someone you have painted!  I hope you like him.  He’s mixed media on canvas, 50 x 70 cm.
