Towy Valley


The above painting has an obvious ground of burnt sienna. It was put on roughly before I stared putting in the main boundaries. It can be scrubbed on or wiped on with a rag using oil paint and pure turps. It dries quickly and you dont have to wait to carry on. The ground which shows through over the painting holds it together and breaks up larger areas of colour adding interest.

The painting which is of the Towy Valley sold to a lady who had no connection to the Valley but just liked the painting.

If you were to come to our house at the present you would be forgiven for thinking we had been burgled by a very untidy offender or visited by a marauding band of Goths, which is closer to the truth.
Yes we have grandchildren for the weekend. To be fair they have been good but I don't think Alex is up to reading another "Secret Seven," book and Jac has been hiding in the garden. So today halelujah in the words of the immortal Elvis its "Return to Sender." After all you can have too much of a good thing!
