Shadows


This painting was set as an exercise to show how much colour there is in a shadow and how shadows form. I found it hugely challenging. It took almost a day to paint the folds in the cloth! I am quite pleased with the result.

I am also trying out a new brand of canvas board made by Art Stuff in Observatory. Fantastic! Amazing texture. I'm loving it!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.
