Painted in oils on 40 x 40 cm canvas, these two are really enjoying a quiet moment together. Loved painting this – enjoyed every moment. I hope you get pleasure from it too!
A little bit of fun today – a quick version of a chicken – and what a fine fellow he is! Painted in oils on a 30 x 25 cm canvas.
This one took a long time – or so it seemed to me! It’s painted in oils on a 40 x 50 cm canvas. This is my first attempt at painting an Ocelot and it took me forever to find some suitable reference photos! I’m pleased with it, and I think it’s “done”. Another one to chalk up to experience!
I was gifted some new oil paint – orange yellow and sap green – and a lot of it! I am very grateful for the kindness of that generous person and thought I would use these colours as a basis for this picture. Initially I did think that it was unlikely it would work out very well with such diverse colours but I have been pleasantly surprised how the different mixes of the colours made totally different tones. Enough said, this is the end result, and I do hope you like it!
I am so new to watercolours! These are my first two real attempts with the medium. I am reasonably pleased with the outcomes. I have so much to learn about using watercolours though and I shall enjoy experimenting with them.
The Tiger I have painted in oils before, as you may remember, so it was interesting to me to notice the differences between the two mediums. I do still prefer the oils to paint with but that is probably because I am such a beginner with watercolours and oils are far more familiar to me.
I hope you like them.
