Lemon on Grey

A lemon with the cleaning rag again! I like the idea of the bright lemon on the dull grey background. This is oil on gessoed board 6 x 6 inches.

Lemon and Rag

I'm quite fond of this one. The backdrop is my other half's window cleaning rag!

Green apples

I like the idea of combining different greens in a painting. This is oil on canvas 6x6 inches. The backdrop is an old blouse of mine!

Lemon and Jug

There's something about lemons that's very aesthetically pleasing! This is an oil painting on 6x6 inch canvas. I used a dress of mine as the backdrop!

Coming Home!!!

I was never really happy with my new blog, and a lot of people used to visit this one, so I've decided to come home!! I'm now going to use this blog to document my daily progress in painting. I'm trying to paint at least one small 'alla prima' oil painting from life every weekday - some days I might not be able to do this but I'll try my best. This is an oil painting on gessoed board - a surface I'm not used to but I'm getting to like it. The reflection of the satsuma in the blue shiny cup was fun to do.
