First two oils on my latest paintings blog.

Here are two small oils to kick off my latest paintings blog.  

I’ve just arranged a new venue/Gallery in California to display my paintings in and things have taken longer to start here than I thought. Anyway, these studies of fruit are done on board and took a short morning to do. I find it helps to start on two paintings at once when working in oils; as one dries a little with some fast-drying gel mixed with a few drops of turps, the other one can be started. Then a few, thick strokes to finish and give them an oily, layered finish which will dry in their own time!  

Please contact me for any enquiries and painting details, as most of the paintings in this section will be available.
