As promised here is my almost finished painting of WELSH HOUSES NEAR THE COAST. It is almost fininshed because the light has been very changeable this week. I took the photo of the Romanesc Broccoli in almost total darkness, using flash. This morning we woke up to soft sunshine filtered by orange fog haze.
My painting has been worked on during the week not knowing what it would look like the next day. i have just a few fiddle to do and then sign it.
I have particularly enjoyed painting sheep in a slightly different way.

This post box (letter box) is so typical of the more remote parts of England/Scotland and Wales etc. Quite often they are tucked away behind brambles, set into cottage walls, up telephone posts. They are a reminder of a time when you could post a letter almost anywhere within walking distance of you house. Alongside the postbox would often be found the telephone box. People would hear the phone ring and walk to someones house to tell them there was a call for them ... that's because it was rare to get a call and usually it meant BAD NEWS.

THE GOLDEN FLEECE - acrylic on canvas - NFS

Posted by Picasa
A welcome return to an old theme. I really enjoy painting in this way, but cannot make it happen at will. I am already on to my next one in this vein. It is always such a joy to be able to paint like this because it expresses for me something of the amazing joy of living in Wales. This part of Wales, where we live at present has more sheep than people. This in itself is amazing as it seems that the first thing sheep want to do is to die!
I have called it GOLDEN FLEECE because many of the sheep are painted in massively expensive GOLD paint (I think - 64 carrot gold ... giving it a slightly orange appearance).
I like having fun with my artwork.
