Some new pictures that I have completed in the last few months.
This painting (in oils) is a view of Weston (where I live), from the nearby hillside. It has some good points, although I don’t feel that the colours all work. They individually make sense, but somehow don’t quite come together.
I actually prefer the background in this picture, I kind of wish that I had left the foreground out, and kept it as an atmostpheric view across a misty lake.
Well, it is a picture of some roses. I actually like it more than I expected to. I like flowers, but it is difficult to paint them in a way that does not look a bit twee.
This is another of my brooding, Bath at night pictures, and is my favourite of my recent pictures. I was trying to get the effect of moonlight and also illumination by streetlight on a row of houses, I think it works very well, there is a nice contrast between the warmth of reflected streetlight on the houses, and the much colder light of the moon.
