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.

Life painting

We had an all day life session a couple of Sundays ago. It was ace to be able to take my time and not have to paint from life at a manic pace. I am hoping to do more of these all day sessions. Roughly 5 hours painting here.

If you are in the Nottingham area and want to attend Jon's brilliant life session on wednesday evening then pop along to his facebook group. He is a great teacher and an extremely nice guy to boot!
