Still missing that elusive element.  Perhaps I should stay away from painting happy, colourful scenes…

Well that’s the easy bit done…

Perhaps you’re smiling now

Bit more done.  Sorry about the glare on the left sleeve – caution!  Wet paint…

Day off work today so managed to get out and finish a couple of small paintings. A very dull, overcast day and I really couldn’t get into my stride at all for some reason. Meh.

A sunny weekend here in Belgium! Got out to paint for an hour or so yesterday, this is the view of a ridgeline in the late afternoon near the ‘Joyeux Asticots’.

Still having trouble with this one, especially the fronts of the buildings in shadow on the right hand side. Will keep on though!

Life has been insanely busy of late, but I had a rare opportunity to paint yesterday.  Have been meaning to do these poppies for ages, don’t think I quite did them justice though.  The picture certainly didn’t turn out much like the vision in my head!  But then they seldom do…

UA annual exhibition

I was very pleased to be accepted as an Associate member of the United Society of Artists last year.  Hoping to get some work into the show this year as well.  Wish me luck!

Obviously, I changed my mind about adding some smoke and steam to this one.  Glad I did, I think it gives the scene a bit more life.
