Sunflowers – a lovely, bright, playful flower, but with a somewhat muted background. This was a special request from a group of ladies that were really keen to paint some sunflowers in their event. As always, it’s painted with acrylics that dry quickly and give the painting a boost of colour and texture. This is… Continue reading Sunflowers

Meadow Flowers

Another gorgeous addition to the Painter’s Gallery from this past weekend! Most people walk through the studio door with the expectation that they won’t be able to complete anything near the original that they’ve chosen. These people are always surprised at what they achieve with instruction, a bit of encouragement, and a bit of wine.… Continue reading Meadow Flowers

Fluffy chicken

It’s punchy, but with a limited palette of coral, grey & a pop of light blue. Just like in our popular flamingo painting, this has very satisfying, fast feathers. If… Continue reading Fluffy chicken
