Feeling rather chuffed with myself at present, i put two pictures into an open art exhibition gallery last week and i have sold one so far.
This gave me renewed hope that all i do need not be in vain, although i only manage to paint one day a week at the moment, come the christmas period i have several days in which to get more practise in, so needless to say that now all the shopping is finished and my wife has some lovely items waiting to be unwrapped come the big day, I will endeavour to continue with it.
I managed to fit this painting in between shopping , working , going to the plot and visiting people, so again i am really happy with my progress as I try to grow my experience.
This is an image i really liked, loved the reflections in the bowl although in the original the relections are different. I liked the balance of the greens against the yellows , all seem to mingle together to form a beautiful colour combination along with a great composition makes for a pleasing picture. I used Griffin Alkyd Oil as this dries faster than normal oil paint, making it quicker to layer after starting.
