It's been busy in the studio since I've been back! Lots of painting going on :o)
First, I've finished the above painting last night. I titled it 'High Tide'. This painting was started in the summer, and it's the first of my larger 'summer pieces' that has been completed. I started it, because I was interested in attempting clouds. I think it turned out good for my first 'cloud attempt', I hope that I can improve with other pieces.
It was very difficult to capture this painting on my camera due to it's size and the fact that I don't have a professional set up - and not even anything close to one. So the colors are slightly off. There are more pictures on my Flickr page.
I've also started a new painting. I wanted to try something new - painting the whole background a vivid color and then painting on top of it. I thought - what's more vivid than red? So this is the very beginning / baby stage of it. It will be a field landscape when it's done - unless of course I change my mind part way, which happens on a regular basis.
So on top of all these paintings, I have also been working on a large number of commissions of trees for my Jellybeans shop. My paint brushes have had no rest since summer came :o)
