Pretty flowers

Oil on board, 20 x 15 cm:


For a change, an outdoor scene. For this sort of thing I often prefer a far looser, impressionist sort of style. I based it on a reference photo I took in the garden of a local school; I noticed the girl intently staring at the flowers, haloed in rich light, and knew I wanted to try painting it.

Candy and Delftware

Oil on board, 15 x 20 cm (= about 6 x 8 inches):

Oil on board, 10 x 15 cm (= 4 x 6 inches):
