Latest paintings.

I thought it about time I posted images of a few of the paintings I have been working on over the last few weeks. Thanks for taking a look!

landscape painting of a field with straw bales
'Bales'   8 x 12 inches, oil on board.
These cylinder bales seem more frequent in the landscape than the old rectangular bales, but they are still an interesting subject to paint.

Painting of cloud shadows landscape
'Cloud Patterns'   8 x 12 inches, oil on board.

This was painted quite loosely, the best way I think to capture those beautiful fleeting moments as the clouds cast interesting patterns of shade and sunlight across the landscape.

Painting of Cockerels and hens in a farmyard
'The Boss'   10 x 12 inches, oil on board.
Not an unusual composition for me, a farmyard painting featuring cockerels and hens, going about their daily routine around the old farm buildings.

oil painting of poppies on a hillside.
'Summer Breeze'   8 x 12 inches, oil on board.
These poppies looked like they were being swept up the grassy hillside by the warm summer breeze, which gave me the title for this warm summer poppy painting. Where did the summer go!

oil painting of cattle grazing beneath the trees.
'Cattle Grazing'   6 x 8 inches, oil on board.
A small simple loose painting, quickly describing a scene which has long been one of my favourite subjects to paint, cattle grazing!

Cattle in a barn painting
'Barn Interior'   6 x 8 inches, oil on board.

This small painting of the barn interior was painted using simple blocks of colour and tone to depict the atmosphere of the old barn, details kept to a bare minimum.
