Latest Oils

I’ve not been posting regularly on this blog lately as I have been sending some of my pictures to select Facebook groups instead. So another post today is a bit much but I wanted to show some of my latest oil paintings.

These two paintings are tests in styles. Both are highly detailed but in different ways.

Frost Bite Longbow, shows a group of archers nocking their arrows during a winter competition. The difficulty was achieving likenesses without over-painting or producing caricatures. I liked the way the bows & arrows criss-crossed through the composition. Also there was bright morning winter sun producing strong shadows and highlights.

Oak Tree, is testing a different technique on painting trees. I have plans to try using this style on a large format using a picture from the lakes. I have to decide if this is a path I want to follow.
