Sorry I haven't blogged for ages, I'm too bloody lazy to. This is my latest painting and, in case you're wondering, it's an orange. Now I don't get on too well with citrus fruit, there are probably a couple on here somewhere that are complete disasters. I have approached this one very differently as I am determined not be beaten by an orange. I am doing this in layers of colour, all dry brushed in, have ruined 3 brushes so far. I am really happy with it now and maybe the "can't do citrus fruit" thing might be coming to an end (although I won't hold my breath).
So I have been set a challenge, someone has asked me to paint a car for them. This is the one they wanted (well I hope it is). I almost hyperventilated when I was asked but then thought that I should at least try to do it. Treat it like a still life but instead of having the object in front of me I am using a photograph for reference. I have to confess the more I have done on it the more I have enjoyed it too, the picture below doesn't look like I'm enjoying it I know but I was concentrating at the time. This is in oil and is quite large.
