Opportunities for painting have been thin on the ground of late as I’ve had to make a few strictly ‘non-painting’ trips away!
Here though are a few little diversions that I’ve enjoyed of late! After all the various paintings of trees that I’ve been working on recently, I knew that I was keen for a change.

Sadly this one is a little overworked, but I enjoyed painting it and feel that every time I try a portrait (though that feels a little grand) – I learn such a lot.
Hopefully I’ll have a little more to show this time next week!
