Here are a couple of paintings from the last couple of days that I feel rather happy with. I'm still painting trees and feel that these two paintings capture the feeling I am striving for. They convey a warm sunny day and I particularly enjoyed painting the one with the exposed roots on the bankside. I saw this scene in a place called Trellowarren in Cornwall. It was near the entrance to a prehistoric stone age tunnel complex on a hill. The experts are not sure if the tunnels were used for grain storage or for defence purposes in case of an attack by a neighbouring tribe of warriors. Anyway, the scene inspired me to capture it in a painting and I'm rather pleased I did.
Hopefully it won't be too long before I can add more to my blog but if the choice is painting or blogging, then painting certainly comes first.
