Looking at this again, I think I need to knock back the shadow areas of her dress...hmm...you never get to finish in this lark...there's always something else to do.

October 3rd 2014 , Back to painting after a long hot summer. I've done a few paintings of my grandchildren, from photos, taken while on holiday in France.
I used some oil medium while painting this picture...it smelt awful, and got stuck to my fingers and brushes...but it made the colours glow beautifully.

Rana. I struggled in this painting to create a composition out of such a long slender woman. In the end it became a matter of balancing colours.

This portrait of Tony was painted in two sessions at my Thursday portrait group. The extra work gone into it has, I think, made it more complex and richer.

I first painted this lady two weeks ago. The other portrait was more flattering, but I prefer this one as it has more humanity.
