Another still life

Last week's still life, probably about three hours in the making. Don't like the cork but enjoyable to do this one.

Oil paint on gessoed Heritage White 315gsm.


As I said in a previous post, no headspace or energy for etching at the moment so I've mothballed PB temporarily. This image is probably about three quarters done but will go into suspended animation for the foreseeable. PB will be back though... he has many stories left to tell. It's a bit of a relief to have made the decision actually. I realise I put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to etching and the images I make. Painting is a lot more relaxing.

August life drawing

Two-hour oil sketch in oil paint

Quick and simple still life paintings

No headspace for printmaking at the moment so quick, simple still life sketches in oil are where it's at right now. I've been talking about improving my painting skills for years. So, here I go.
