Both of the above oil paintings were done just after dawn trying to capture the freshness of the crisp snow and the early morning light. Often these works are kept small as I find it easier to work out the composition etc, then when I'm happy, I use these studies work up into larger paintings. I have such a large work in progress at the moment and will probably feature in the next post. It is a new farm painting also in the morning light but is taking some time as there are rather a lot of details that I'm slowly working through.
They keep coming back - Yesterday a smaller flock of Waxwings came back to the same park……. The last 7 or 8 days has been a Waxwing extravaganza.
