I Love My Dreads

6"x6" oil on gessoboard

Back to sheep again! Often something special about them stands could be their coat or their eyes...this time it was the dreads I loved and no hairdresser needed either!! I enjoy painting these animals they are so gentle!
This one almost painted itself, I love it when that happens!

Another one in this small Estuary series! I have had a really mucked up week...wiped one off and another went in the bin. I like to challenge myself and keep learning but this time it went to a new level of frustration! I haven't painted many rocks and I tried to create the atmosphere there was on this morning as well...probably too much to try in one painting. I'm not sure I have done too well but here it is!!!

Still Autumn Morning

6"x8" oil on canvasboard

This is the second in this Estuary series. Often there is lovely cool  light in the wind, everything is still, it's my favorite time of the day!! It is a challenge to capture it on a small canvas, not as loose as I would like...good practice though and a study to use for a larger work later on!
