Reflections in Helkidiki

I've got to wait for my two mini canvases to dry before I can work further into them. The Summer has passed and it means that the drying time of the oil paints take longer, so I've started to sketch my next painting out. It's based on some photos taken in a fishing village in Helkidiki, Greece. This one is a bigger sized canvas,14 x 18in.

The boys are back in school

Back to the old routine. Spent a little time today experimenting with my colours for this flower, the petals have a reflective quality, that give them such subtlety and a delicate appearence. The centre of the flower is submerged into the water, and the petals are covered in water droplets, which the most amazing reflections. Now all I have to do is paint them!

Waterliles wip

My studio is lovely, clutter free without all my paintings which are in Southfields, London for 2 weeks. I made a start on these two canvases today, 10 x 10in. Lots of gorgeous details to play with such as water droplets, ripples and reflections.
