Driving home the other evening, I took a quick photo out of the side of the car of the rape seed fields … I love this time of year.  I was inspired by this scene but didn’t want to create just another yellow, blue and green picture … so got fiddling about with the Pebeo paint, which takes an absolute age to dry completely but the results are always interesting.  I will also press this when completely dry so that it lies nice and flat.

I did a large canvas a few years ago that I’ve never been entirely satisfied with.  I used bronze metallic paint to highlight the texture but it isn’t working properly.  So I now want to bring it up to speed.  The smal piece on paper that I did today is a kind of mock-up for the work I want to do soon on the older large canvas – which looks like this at the moment:

This canvas is 47″ x 39″ and about 2″ deep – I haven’t really had anywhere to work on it because of its size but I’m determined next week to take it downstairs and get started. Wish me luck!
