A mild winter and early spring.
I used a pointed round bristle to paint the foliage in the trees. Recently I’ve been using a single bristle, a No. 10 filbert, to do the majority of the painting. Although the filbert shape is very versatile (strokes shapes from round to flat) and can represent the shapes of distant trees comfortably, its too distinctive for close up foliage. The pointed round allows a variety of stroke sizes and shapes.
This painting uses only 3 colours (Yellow Ochre, Permanent Rose, Ultramarine Blue) plus black and white. There is no medium used, only White Spirits.
The painting is 12″ x 9″.
I love it even more, having seen it grow Liam. Thanks for sharing. As ever, you are a generous artist!
Thank you. I like to think documenting the painting process is of interest to other painters. When I started painting, many years ago, this was not possible. You saw the final product and that was it. Modern technology isn’t all bad 🙂
You are so good … 👍
Such a lovely painting, as always
Your work still amazes me. Beautiful
Brilliant creation of the grasses and their light.
Oops – meant that comment for your “Bursted Bank” (March 7) This one it’s that spot of intense blue in the water.
