Eynsham Square in the Sunshine

Eynsham Square in the Sunshine…and what a lot of sunshine…;)

Allotmenting and general chores have been taking up a lot of time lately…hence the lack of two paintings a week…but the weather should turn awful pretty soon, so I’ll have more painting time then… so there’s a positive in everything.

Missed out on my beer time this evening to get this done, but I’d been in and out all day doing little bits of it in between other jobs and I really wanted to get it finished.

Obviously I’ve pushed the colours a bit further on this one, It’ll be interesting to see what people think of it…overall I’m pleased with the final result, plenty of movement…:)

It seems like next months Eynsham Art Group exhibition will have lots of local flavours, Lorna, Sue and I have all been focusing on similar themes of late, should be a good exhibition, I know I’m really looking forward to seeing their pieces in the flesh...fascinating to see how we’re all interpreting the same subjects…

News!…I’ve got a couple of paintings in the Oxford Open show on at Saïd at the moment, so if you’re in town and fancy seeing them, pop in and take a look, or better still, take your cheque book ;)

Armageddon? Love the energy and the light but still think that 'line' colour need thinking about ...

Lol, there has been a slightly ‘other worldly’ element to the sky in these lately hasn’t there…I do know what you mean about the line colour Lorna…and on some of them I do tweak it, toning it down here and there…but it’s the harshness of the white that I really like…

I missed the beer time too…the credit crunch is catching up with me alas…still I’m sure I’ll make up for it next time we’re all out for a drink :) See you both soon I hope G
