And another oneā€¦.

There always seems a certain point in the production of an artwork where boredom suddenly sets in and I feel the need to finish and move on to the next project. I got up this morning determined to finish the 2nd painting documented in my last blog, it was getting fairly close anyway and just a little push would get it done and out of the way. Nothing very insightful to say about it, just finishing the fruit, adding some more thickness of paint to the sky, and some additional colour texture also in the sky, tidy up the clouds and add some red accent colour horizontally. I hesitated about adding a little pattern to the plate but finally went for it, secure in the knowledge that an advantage of oil paints is that mistakes are easier to am and than, say, watercolours. Anyway, it’s now done, my Mary Fedden book has arrived in the post to inspire me, and 2 more canvases await my attention.
