More Dunes...finished!

I thoroughly enjoyed creating the texture on these and am really interested to see how, despite using the same blue/greens/browns on each, the colours take on a different appearance depending on the base colour.  I have allowed some of the underpainting to show though on both, but especially like the purple...

More Dunes...

Having added the skies to both canvasses I find I particularly love the purple/blue colour combination.
I have often loved the slightly abstract effects I have created at the early stages a lot of my recent work but which is gradually lost as the paintings have developed, I might aim to keep more of the underpainting than usual on this occasion......

Art-time on a Saturday!!

Thanks to my wonderful children wanting to cook tea today (homemade burgers & home baked bread rolls!!) I am free to play in my art room sooner than expected.

Having not painted for about a month I am warming myself up with a familiar subject that I have enjoyed painting before (dunes/grasses) and after underpainting the white canvasses, I have been having fun experimenting with texture gel & silk thread in advance of putting paint to canvas.....

My exhibition has finished and I would just like to say thank you so much to all my friends and family who visited and for all your very kind comments, I really appreciate your support.

Following a very relaxing Christmas-time with my family we are all now back at work/school and I am looking forward to my first day off of 2011 to START PAINTING AGAIN!!
