Oil on canvas, 11"x14"

This painting was done as a commission. Not my usual subject but it's good to try other subjects and styles and I've certainly enjoyed the challenge.

Landscape Oil on gessoed card 6"x8"

In this painting I have simplified the elements into colour masses and restricted the range of tonal values. I have used a small painting by Glenn Dean as the starting point. He in his turn has been influenced by Edgar Payne the American landscape painter. I enjoyed using thick juicy impasto for this painting.
