Summer paintings

Hello friends, it's nice to be back after the summer break.
I've only got three paintings to show you from my month off, because I was rather busy with getting my book of short stories out - and then working on my forthcoming novel- All in the Leaves - which should be available for sale at the end of October.

Here are the three paintings, newest first:

Chloe

 15x11
Saunders Waterford 140 Rough

She was a little outside of my comfort zone, but I'm happy with how she turned out. 

Lifeboat

15x11
Saunders Waterford 140 Rough


Lifeboat was made using techniques I've come to love, pouring and spraying! 
Brushwork was centred around the lifeboat and a few wave shadows.

Life


Life is.. a bowl of cherries, so I've heard :) 
This one is 11x8 and was the first of my holiday paintings. 

I hope you've enjoyed them all. 
Be round to visit your blogs soon.

    1. Thanks, Ann. I thought that with a bowed head, the flowers would be in clear focus, so that's how I painted them :)

  10. I love the Lifeboat Pat, all are very good but the movement and power in The lifeboat does it for me (and of course the sea is part of the piece and I just love the sea!)xx
