Lincolnshire Storm Oils on canvas board 5 x 7 inches £ 50
Sudden showers and sunny intervals.
Gathering storm clouds over a Lincolnshire field.
I like a little drama in my work and the April weather gives me plenty.
The bright lemon yellow of oilseed rape is seen across the county.
When stormy purple skies oblige, a painter must paint.

Soft Light Oils on canvas board 16 x 20 inches
Here is a piece of work about light on the salt marshes.
Mostly about greens and blues I added other colours to lift the mood.
Touches of purple and sienna make the painting come to life.
Now the board is dry I think I will leave it apart from using a darker glaze
of transparent Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue in parts of the foreground.
This will strengthen the composition, add weight and a little warmth.
