Here is an oil painting of apple blossom on board. It took a while to arrive, but spring has finally sprung in Devon. This is the first time that I can recall that I have apple blossom, horse chestnut blossom, bluebells and daffodils all in flower together.
And here is an owl asleep in a tree - so not really a tweet, but never mind. Painted with transparent oxide red, transparent oxide brown, yellow ochre, black and white. My new yellow ochre is Winsor & Newton Yellow Ochre Light, from the professional range. It is fab and behaves very nicely in a difficult palette like this one: not once did I get cow pat green even though the whole piece was painted wet into wet. It is odd how paint from different manufacturers but with the same name behaves so very differently. Have a lovely weekend everyone and thank you for looking at my paintings.
A sunny little painting for you on a bright and sunny morning here in Devon. My garden is bristling with these little birds at the moment. I always call them Jenny Wrens even though they can't really all be girls. But this one is.
