Royal Tern – 9 x 12 Oil on stretched canvas


The steaks will be  done in 8 minutes so this will be a quick one.

The tern is finished. Had to resort to a paint brush to do his eye and legs.



My next painting is an acrylic on board, primed with absorbent ground. I DO like it alot.

Heron’s nest – 12 x 16 Acrylic on board

This is interesting for a few reasons. I used a thin coat of raw sienna as the under painting. Then painted the tree and nest with burnt umber. Then painted in the sky. I took  class a few weeks back the the instructor said that I wasn’t painting.. I was dabbing.

So today, I tried to PAINT!

Happy Saturday
