At last I have a new painting completed and I am really pleased with how it turned out. Finally, I am feeling more comfortable both with the oils as well as painting the landscape. I have stopped wanting to chuck the oils out and paint still life in watercolour!
This is a scene of Lake Buttermere in the English Lake District, a very beautiful place with a lovely walk along its banks.
Never fear, I haven't forsaken Scotland - if the weather improves for the weekend, I intend to do some plein air painting locally when I can figure out a way to carry my gear on my bike. Whether I show the results or not remains to be seen!
