It is a long time since I last blogged, but that doesn’t mean that I have stopped painting! I have been trying out some new techniques with oil painting that I am not yet ready to share.
I did, however, paint these two farrier paintings, one in pastel and one in oil.
I posted them on Facebook and asked people to tell me which they like best – there were varied opinions, some preferred one and some the other. Let me know what you think, and why. Can you tell which is the pastel, and which the oil?
There have been a variety of florals that seem to be one of my favourite subject nowadays – it probably coincides with my other passion, my garden.
I also love to paint animals, and was pleased with the looseness and movement I achieved with these white horses.
Spring is such a wonderful time here in the Wye Valley in Wales that I can’t resist painting some of the landscapes around me, and the beautiful bluebells that flower in the woods just a short walk from our house.
Finally, also inspired by the locality, I painted one of the views of the inside of Tintern Abbey. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful piece of Gothic architecture on our doorstep!
