Apple on Table

titanium white, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow medium, bright red, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.

I am selling this for £60 and postage is free in the UK (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

Ocean Sunset 2
This is my new seascape oil painting.
Please note this is a large painting and I cannot post it outside of the UK due to it’s size.
It is oil on canvas stretched over a wooden frame and would suit a nice floater frame.

It is done in an impressionistic style with attention to colour rather than detail.
Palette used was Titanium white, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red, permanent rose, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and cerulean blue.

I occasionally use Acrylic paints as well as oil paints.
The techniques involved are very different as acrylic paint dries within minutes giving you limited time to work with the paint.
This can lend itself to a faster more spontaneous painting which was the case here.
I used a similar palette to my oil paints, white, lemon yellow, medium yellow, bright red, burnt sienna and ultramarine blue.
Acrylic on homemade canvas board 264 mm x 174 mm, requires custom framing.
I am selling this for £70 with free postage in the UK
Lemon and Glass
Lemon and Glass still life is my new painting.
This is a fairly small painting 17 x 22 cm on homemade canvas board.
Although it has a degree of realism it’s quite impressionistic for me.
I haven’t added too much detail or reworked sections and I quite like it’s simplicity.
Palette used was also minimal: titanium white, lemon yellow, yellow ochre, permanent rose, ultramarine blue and burnt sienna.
I am selling this one for £60 and postage is free in the UK
Loaf and Knife Still Life 2
Loaf and Knife Still life 2 is my second attempt at this kind of painting.
Bread has so much texture and subtle colour’s when you look closely but how do you try and capture this?
Again I found myself using the palette knife and my fingers to try and achieve this by dragging and pushing the paint over previous layers.
I am happy with the results though and the bread looks almost crusty!
Palette used here was titanium white, lemon yellow, cad yellow medium, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, permanent rose and ultramarine blue.
I am finding I am staring to prefer permanent rose over alizarin these days but not sure if I’ll be dropping the alizarin completely just yet.
Painting is on homemade canvas board and requires custom framing. It’s 342 x 255 mm
Requires another week to dry before being completely ready.
Lemon and Figs
Lemons and Fig still life is my latest oil painting on homemade canvas board.
Size is 265 x 175 mm and will require custom framing.
Palette used here was titanium white, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow medium, permanent rose, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and light green.
It needs a week or two to completely dry before varnishing but if anyone wants to reserve it then let me know.
Cherries Still Life
I’ve not been able to paint very much over the past few weeks due to holidays and house refurbishments.
In fact its still going to be a bit slow for the next month or two, but despite all the upheavals I have managed to knock out another still life.
It still needs to dry for a week or two but here is the finished result.
Its fairly small 20 x 20 cm on canvas board.
Palette used was titanium white, cad yellow, cad red, alizarin, burnt sienna, cerulean blue , ultramarine and light green.
