Winters here


Winter has now well and truly begun here, with cold, short days. Fortunately no snow yet in Wales but there is further to the north in England and Scotland. I've not been painting much as there were  bookings in the hotel ,coupled with a lack of energy.



Here is an autumn study I'm still working on;below I have yet to paint in some bits! but it shows how it will look when finished -hopefully.The little acorn cups were quite difficult and shows the need to draw correctly before painting-the Fibonacci spiral is used for drawing various natural objects,like pine cones,pineapples, sunflower centers and these little acorn cups.




Take care xx

  3. That scientific mind you have goes well with your artistic heart. I always shie from painting things like acorn cups for the mathematical precision of them.

  10. Your work is always beautifully done. I really love the branch with the two acorns. Of course it is all lovely.
    Winter well and truly here , had snow on the hills but it is the terrible chill with the winds. We braved it and went for a windy walk, very rosy cheeks now.
