Cactus



Oil on canvas 50 x 60 cms


This has taken me much longer than I originally thought it would... I keep going back and fiddling!
I will now leave it for a few days and see if it still looks ok.  I also need to take a better photograph, this one had to be slightly skew to avoid the light glare as much as possible.

These cactus were part of a long row that my friend had in her garden. They caught my eye because of the way the midday sun was making them glow, offset by the cool greens in the ceramic bowls.
I am still using the working title of 'cactus' ( highly original and interesting I know), so any good title will be appreciated thank you!

Chalk and Cheese





I love to do these little sketches in watercolour, it's good practice and it's good to have a break from my big oil paintings.  Both of these are of men, but one is Sicilian and the other is English....I bet you can't tell which one is which!








My art group has booked our exhibition for May so I'm going to be preparing some new work to go with the pieces I already have.  I'm focused and ready to go! (hopefully)
