The idea with this one was simple: to have three bold stripes of colour and a certain amount of detail in each to give the illusion of receding into the distance.
This is a portrait I painted for my boyfriend’s brother’s family of their dog Milly. It’s oil on canvas, 10×10, and I finished it a few months ago. It was an Xmas present so I can now share it here!
Given that my folks aren’t whizzes with the old “interweb”, I don’t think it’ll “spoil Xmas” to publish a picture of my recently finished painting here.
It’s oil on canvas, and I’ve called it “Dawn”, as it’s a landscape of the Peak District at dawn in spring, when two Jacobs rams caught my eye.
Oil on canvas, painted summer 2010. The fastest I have ever produced a painting, completing it within 24 hours over two sittings. I’ve gone for light effect rather than reality. It was an attempt to capture Saffy having a mid-afternoon doze on my bed, warming herself to the sunshine coming through the window. It is on the wall of my parents’ house in my old bedroom.
I painted this three years ago. The original hangs in my parents’ dining room.
