Board mania!

 

I’ve been busy again this week and finished off a few of the oil paintings on board that I’m currently embracing. I had a bit of a birdfest going on. I also noticed my husband sneakily changed the title of one artwork. I thought ” Shag!” was a perfectly acceptable title, but he swapped it for ”Gone fishing.” Can you tell which one of us is the grown up in this relationship?

Having freed up some easel space meant I could start on a new picture, and as the sun was shining today I grabbed at the opportunity to paint en plein air with another of the artists down at the Tithebarn Workshops, Jackie, who was drawing a three- legged cat called Colin – no really. I had to crop her out of my photo on here because I managed to immortalise her stuffing a boiled egg in her mouth as the shutter went click, and us girls get a bit funny about that sort of thing.

I had a big idea of not painting another bird for a bit so I have started on an ever-changing boat scene. My head was thinking something along the lines of a boat adrift on tranquil water but as I was painting it suddenly ran aground and reeds started growing… I’m going to need another title change at this rate!
