This piece, ‘Waiting, Wishing, Wanting’ is now finished and available on the website. I have been making use of glazes to get the depth of tone that I wanted and think I have achieved the right effect. Having the light source coming from one side makes for a more interesting composition and I want to work more along these lines.
My next work is going to be a redhead and I am very excited about this. I have wanted to paint a redhead for sometime and had someone in mind to model for me, but in the meantime, Thomas Snow (@snowglobeman) one of my great supporters on Twitter asked whether I would like to use his wife as a model who is….a redhead. As a result, he has sent me some wonderful images of his beautiful wife and I am very excited to be able to start a painting of her as my next work. Watch this space, and thank you Tom and Natalie.
I shall be sending out my first Newsletter this month, so if you would like to be kept up to date with what I am up, please sign up for this Newsletter; details are at the top of the Home page.
I have also added the facility of being able to Share a painting of mine on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, so if you would like other people/friends/family etc to see one of my paintings you like, just press the relevant button by the side of said painting. Modern technology eh?!
A very happy, peaceful and prosperous 2016 to everyone. Cheers.
