I have been working on a portrait or two just lately, but really needed a break! The break took me back to my all time favourite creature! Painted in oils on 30 x 40 cm canvas, with love.
Spots before the eyes – literally! This is yet another experiment – to see if I could make it work! I wanted this fellow to be stepping out of the gloom, watching his prey.
I am pleased with my first try at this… and it seems to be popular too – all great!
Painted in oils on 40 x 50 cm canvas board.
I thought I would try a different style – a little more abstract than usual and far less detailed! This is the result! This giraffe was great fun to do and turned out better than I expected!
The tiger too was a new attempt at doing things differently. Both good fun!
The giraffe is on 40 x 50 cm canvas and the tiger on 40 x 40 cm canvas and both are painted in oils.
I apologise for the camera quality – both pictures are more distinct in real life!
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!
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!
