This was a picture in a magazine that caught my eye and I saw it as an exercise to free myself of the dreaded 'fiddling'. I did enjoy painting this, probably because it did not matter how it turned out. Looking at it now, I can see a million things I want to change but I shall resist the temptation to return to it.
I painted this yesterday, and as I wanted thin paint, I used white spirit, which I haven't done for a while. It gave me such a headache, which I still have today, so I shall heed the words of David R Darrow, and stay with the walnut oil in future.
If you would like to purchase this painting for 200 GBP (unless otherwise stated) please email me.
