New paintings & more in progress

Here are a few new paintings that I haven’t had a chance to digitalize- until today!

Alice is 100 x 80cm oil on canvas, like the Magdalena painting I did a few months back- I’m really into the hair.

Lilly- warm

Lilly- cold

These are little paintings, 50 x 40cm, oil on canvas. I did these in a matter of hours, they are more immediate than any of my other paintings, sort of letting loose and making impressions rather than building up layers and layers and refining everything. I really enjoyed these and hope to do a few more like this using some other amazing ladies I know.

Here is another smaller painting I started today- Christian, 50 x 40cm, oil on canvas. Off to a really good start with this one, successful undercoats always make me feel happy.

Progress Photo- Lilly

This is the first layer for the second painting of a small series I am working on called Lilly. They are 40 x 50CM each in size.
I only apply two layers of paint to each painting. It’s a challenge that I have given myself to work with speed, colour and the texture of the paint.
