Seabank Hotel Porthcawl

The weather has been great of late, so not much time has been spent, indoors painting!
Its not often we get good weather in the the UK so we need to make the most of it.
Last night (17/07/2017) I had the urge to start a new painting. 
It had to be something small and quick.
Could I get an oil painting complete in the couple of hours I had available?
Well I chose to paint the view from just outside my apartment looking along the sea front to the Seabank hotel Porthcawl and as a quick test out finished within the evening!.

Need to get back to Painting!

Its been a while since I last finished a painting, this lovely weather we have been having has been making me enjoy the outdoors.
On the plus side I guess that will give me inspiration for the inevitable rainy days ahead!

Colourful Wood #2

Colourful Wood #2

With the play with mixed media looking close to my previous Colourful Woods and Tree of Life, I though that I would develop a series of Colourful Woods, using the technique of watering down the oil paint so that it works more like watercolour paint.

Below will be a step by step progression to completion

Autumn #2

Autumn #2 - 18x14"

Trees added along with a splash of colour.
I have been experimenting with epoxy resin to give the painting a nice sheen.....
Not going to well on the samples at the moment! The resin is just not drying, may just have to rethink this!!!!

Continuing to have a play with mixed media.
Another Autumn wood with fabric leaves in acrylic paint. I may finish this off and seal it with epoxy resin.

Not the best picture! But you get the idea!
