Charcoal sketch is now framed.
The pink bits are my cardigan, reflected in the glass ... not part of the sketch.
Just framed this latest painting of figs - I just love the colours in figs and that satin sheen they have ... makes them look very tempting!
We used a plain wood bespoke frame, with a coat of liming wax, which gives it a pale white washed appearance, while retaining the grain of the wood.
'Figs' - Oil on board, in a bespoke frame
I've had sticks of charcoal lying around in drawers for ... well years!
Occasionally I've got them out and dabbled - but last week I felt the need to express my self, or rather my feelings/emotions toward this scene, in black and white. So it seemed an opportune moment to delve into that box of silky smooth carbon and produced this!
'Storm Approaching' - charcoal & conte on watercolour paper
Another oil on board, framed and for sale.
This was a portion of a larger painting - I wasn't happy with the overall look and as the sugar bowl was the main subject of the painting ... I trimmed the edges down and re-framed the painting with a double mount.
Still playing with flat colour - another view of Appledore from Instow beach, this time with a sunset.
'Instow at Sunset' - Acrylic on paper
My favourite local spot, by the sea - just playing around, trying a more graphic representation.
Think I might add one or two seagulls to the sky area!
