Dead Wood

Dead Wood Watermark

An old piece of dead Elm bark from the farm.  The most interesting thing I’ve ever painted.

Autumnal Still Life

Autumnal Still Life

Painted from life. I had to make an arrangement of various autumnal nuts and leaves and referred off of it. I wanted to keep the arrangement loose, and have a circular effect to go with the swirling, vortex-like background. Used Payne’s Grey for the first time, in the background. Satisfied with the overall result.
