This is my new oil painting entitled Fragile.
I love the way light passes through objects and makes them glow with translucent effects.
Oranges and lemons are great for this – but then I noticed some eggs in the kitchen and thought “hmmm I wonder”
Well this the result. It’s oil on canvas board 30 x 24 cm and is available for £120 pound free UK postage.
I was struggling at first to get the eggshell colour so added cadmium yellow deep and cadmium orange to my palette. These two colours were used as a starting point then different amounts of blue white and burnt sienna were mixed in the achieve the final results.

My new painting entitled Chocolate Break was a little bit of a challenge.
Trying to paint chocolate is not as easy as it sounds, neither is the foil wrapping.
But painting is a constant learning and searching process (which is part of the fun for me)
I used burnt sienna and ultramarine blue for the chocolate colour and for the foil I used yellow ochre, lemon yellow, burnt sienna and ultramarine blue.
The blue background was cerulean blue which is a cooler blue.
It is 30 x 24 cm and is oil on canvas board.
Selling this for £60 (free UK postage) SOLD

My new oil painting took a few weeks to complete.
I built it up in a few layers of paint then added various glazes to get the translucent effects.
Quite painstaking but well worth the effort.
It’s painted on hardboard which I don’t do very often but the smooth surface lends itself well to the subject.
Dimensions are 40 x 30 cm.
If you purchase it I would suggest getting it framed professionally as hardboard can curve slightly and care is required.
Also do not display in or near a source of heat such as a radiator or in a conservatory.
Palette used for this was: titanium white, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow medium, bright red, permanent rose, burnt sienna, yellow ochre, ultramarine blue and cerulean blue.
This painting is now SOLD
