Hope you can come to the preview, or visit the exhibition.  The painting show on the invite is one of mine The Girl with the Trout… its one of those moments that just go in a flash, every moment matters.

Not finished, I want to play with values, really give a sense of perspective by dulling down the background.  I hope to give real texture in the foreground and contrast my markmaking to give the sense of lightness. The burst of orange is the reason for the painting.

Finished today… I think, this one has been really tricky, but I think I’m going to leave it for a while. The beauty of the early morning gentle light warming the winter field was stunning.

Not finished… this is really tricky, its has been a real headache, achieving the texture of the field and keeping the beautiful soft colours of the moring winter light I have found to be really difficult. Pleased with the overall tone, however the middle and background really need something to indicate its a winter field - not a summer cornfield.

Finished this one today… I think.. might play around with it for a little. I will be sending it to the ArtCare Open Exhibition. Working this small has been really great for me.
