New Paintings

Here's a watercolour of mine that I've put on Ebay and there's only a couple of days to go until the bidding time finishes. CLICK HERE if you'd like to catch it before it goes! :)

I'm been busy making paintings on canvas. The images evolve in layers of paint and I find myself making images that seem to echo my thoughts. I've taken these pictures with my little camera so the quality might not be as good as I'd like it to be but I think you can click on each one for a close-up.
Quite often I don't realise what the shapes look like until the painting is finished. The one above appeared to be a tree so I added an extra branch to confirm this!

The birds were almost an afterthought. The painting seemed to need something as a focus. I'm glad I put them in. Ths one is finished now too. It was inspired by a recent visit to the Forest of Dean. I love to see light across a forest floor, there's an air of mystery and possibility isn't there?
I'm off to do some more painting!
