Oil on linen canvas 30cm x 40cm
Lots of fun painting the sunlight coming through the trees in this. I've got an old gold swept frame that I wanted to paint something for and I hope this will look good in the frame. Waiting for a few days for the picture to dry before I try it out.

Just finished off a little watercolour I started a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't sure about the strength of the colour in the sky at first, but I think it turned out nice in the end.
Based on an early morning photo I took whilst out walking our dog.

I had an old odd shaped frame in the house which I painted up white and added silver leaf to. I wanted to paint something to fit the frame and wondered if water lilies might suit it.
I might do a little more work on this but here it is so far.
I painted this as a thank you to a local farmer who kindly lets us metal detect on his land.
I saw him planting some scotch bonnet peppers when I first met him so thought this might appeal. He really loved the painting!

Experimenting with loose washes of colour and not too much detail in this picture. Trying to capture the sunlight and the hazy feel that can give. I quite like the way it turned out so I might try some more experiments like this.
