There is soon to be an exhibition at the Amberley Inn nr Stroud which will include these artworks. The Koi fish painting was a joy to paint and now needs a nice frame. The exhibition will start on 1st September more details to follow. In the meantime here is Halcyon and Wilderness Pheasants with lots of yummy (inedible) gold leaf.
Sometimes you choose a background that drives you a bit crazy because of its’ design. This is not a commission and so I only have myself to blame. Here is a close up of my current work in progress about 1/4 of the total A4 size, the area around the pebbles for the whole image took around 5 hours.
