Choosing a Frame

Went to the framers yesterday to get my new paintings framed for next month's exhibition. The framer I've used for the last few years closed down recently so I've had to find a new one. Looks like I'm in good hands at Hangar Framers at Drem in East Lothian. Here's a wee preview of the frame we chose. Picking them up next Friday, can't wait to see them!

Olives, Oil and Apple Finished

And it's finished! Had to really push this one along as I need to get photos taken ASAP for the exhibition brochure. The exhibition at The Gullane Art Gallery starts next month and I'll be showing 5 brand new paintings, including this piece. What do you think of the the background material? I haven't used a patterned material before, I quite like it now it's finished.

Olives, Oil and Apple WIP 3

Since I'm going to try and get this piece finished today I thought I'd post this work in progress just now. Another 2 hours and I have the left foreground finished.

7 hours of painting later....background and bottle now (almost) complete. Quite happy with how the background material turned out. Foreground material, olives, apple and general tweaking still to do.

New Painting Work In Progress 1

Just finished the underpainting for my latest piece. It's my final painting for the exhibition at the Gullane Gallery next month. I need to get it finished quick so there maybe some late nights this coming week. Wish me luck because this painting features detail on the background, something I've never tried before.

Bird Jug and Figs is Finished!

Finished. About time too, this piece took far too long to complete. It's done now though and I'm happy enough with it. The figs were painted with Cadmium Red, Crimson Alizarin, Cadmium Yellow plus the usual suspects, white and the Burnt Umber/Ultramarine mix. What do you think of the finished piece?

Bird Jug and Figs WIP 4

Jug is now finished, just the figs to do now. So far I've used 5 colours plus white. Burnt Umber, Ultramarine, Yellow Ochre, Viridian and Cadmium Red.
