3 paintings

Here are 3 recent paintings. The landscapes are both wedding presents for friends. Lake bled in Slovenia and St Ives in Cornwall Both are from photos that the respective grooms took. The portrait is my wonderful wife Becky. I started it from life (2 hours) and then finished it in another session from a photo taken during the painting session.

No time for painting, eh? This blog post tells a different story - get your facts straight, Gumbleton! Very nice though all round, love the sand and it's a great likeness of Becky!

Christ you're getting good Jake! All three are lovely, but the first is my favourite.

Brilliant work Jake, and the first one looks even better in real life. :) Great portrait, you nailed it with these. *salutes*
