Harvest

Here are some more of this summer's tiny 8x6 inch landscape paintings, all completed 'en plein air', except for insect removal back home. Each took around an hour to complete.

I have tried to keep them fresh by trying not to push the paint around too much - once a brushstroke was down it was usually left alone.

I am pleased that each picture is as much a set of lovely brushstrokes as it is an illusion.

As well as the paint, what I am really enjoying is matching the colours to what I see, everything mixed from two blues, two reds, and two yellows plus white. I am still able to work quite fast at this, and that is gratifying.

Limiting the number of brushes was a good idea, as was taking plenty of rags.

The water soluble oils work well.

I think you can probably see the influence of Ivon Hitchens, mentioned in an earlier blog.

I had a set of frames made especially for these works, and have been busy preparing them for the paintings, spending almost as much time on them as the pictures themselves.
