Windmills of her Mind

I loved painting this portrait.  It was taken from a photo shoot I did at the beginning of the year but inspiration I think, took it into a different realm.  Strangely the lady did not like it.  Her loss, my gain I think.

Congrats on lovely little Jack! This is a lovely portrait, there is quite a bit of movement here, so often portraits can be static.

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.
