With my studio at a bearable temperature now, I also managed to complete my giraffe. Painted in oils on canvas, 25 x 30 cm.
Yay, my studio is now open again – or rather it’s not so cold in there that I can’t work! Finished off this one – just a small study in oil paint on canvas 25 x 30 cm.
Lynx – and watercolour. Moving away from birds and back to the animals I love. These two are first attempts in watercolour, which as you know, is a new medium for me!
Kingfishers – and watercolour. As earlier, it’s still too cold to work! I have been working on some kingfishers and I am showing just a few of them below. I hope you like them. Happy New Year everyone!
Robins – and watercolour. Lately it has been too chilly for me to work in my usual place so I have been creating some watercolour robins whilst keeping nice and warm! I hope you like them. Next year I shall be making some of them into cards – interesting times ahead! In the meantime I am keeping on practicing with watercolours. Merry Christmas everyone!
Tiger again – this one is thinking possibly? Also oil paint on canvas, 40 x 40 cm. Last in a series of three tigers.
Another Tiger – again oil paint on canvas, 40 x 40 cm. He makes me smile – I hope he makes you smile too!
Back to one of my favourite subjects – Tigers. They are so noble and beautiful. This one is oil paint on canvas, 40 x 40 cm.
Elephants on my mind! These two are oil paintings on canvas – one on board and the other on plain canvas. Both are 30 x 40 cm.
A mother’s love….
Elephants Dual Aspect….
A wild cat with attitude – resting up and contemplating. Enjoyed doing this one. He’s painted in oils on 30 x 30 cm canvas board.
This elephant took my attention and demanded to be in the limelight! It’s painted in oils on board, 30 x 40 cm.
To soothe me in troubled times I have reverted to another big cat picture. It’s oil paint on board, 30 x 40 cm. Considering all the fires raging so near our village he looks remarkably calm even though painted by someone with high anxiety levels!
Back to big cats – larger than usual at 50 x 70 cm, on canvas. Mixed media.
To vary things a bit I have done this abstract – it is mixed media on board, 30 x 40 cm. I hope you like it.
I have reverted to my favourite subjects again – tigers and cats! These two paintings are both in oils but on loose canvas, around 30 x 40 cm. I have now run out of proper canvasses, so will have to make do with some board I have found for the next picture!
A good friend of mine recently sent me a black and white picture of a lion family and asked me to paint it! This is the result. It’s painted in oils on 60 x 40 cm board. It was so enjoyable to do especially as lions are one of my favourite subjects and there were four of them to capture! I haven’t had much experience of painting on board so it was a huge learning curve to complete. Lock-down has a lot to answer for!
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! I hope you like him. He’s mixed media on canvas, 50 x 70 cm.
More on the bird theme – this time a Barn Owl – painted with a special friend in mind. It’s oil paint on canvas, 30 x 40 cm.
Trying something different – an eagle. It’s on canvas board, 30 x 40cm, in oil paint. This for me was a very interesting study and I may do more birds… not sure yet!
Another of my favourite subjects – the tiger! This one is having a rest I think! It’s little, only 20 x 20 cm, painted in oils on canvas.
I am back to my favourite subject – the lion. They are so majestic and powerful. This one is painted with oils and is on a canvas sized 30 x 40 cm. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have loved creating him.
I have been spending a long time working on a private project and therefore not been paying a lot of attention to my studio work. This piece I have just completed. It’s oil on canvas board, 30 x 30 cm.
A commission undertaken and completed, delivered and appreciated! These are oil paint on canvas board, 24 x 30 cm. An enjoyable end to 2019. Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year with 2020 bringing you all your wishes coming true.
