Oil painting on primed card 5x4"
Time to get back into the swing of daily painting!
I've a whole load of objects in my shadow box, waiting to make an appearance ( I do find something very theatrical about the set up)
Here are a couple of books I found in a charity shop: Lieutenant Hornblower, and The Art of Thinking. I've not read them - I'm afraid I only bought them because they look beautiful - I love the faded, loose covers. I wonder whose they were and if they enjoyed reading them.
A rather peculiar composition, but these studies I'm doing are designed as experiments rather than finished pieces.
Its nice to finally feel like I've got the hang of technique to the point where I can play around a bit.
I feel like I'll be using these books in a larger painting soon.
I am a realist painter, working in oils, painting landscape and still life.
