A Walk in the Sun

 "A Walk in the Sun" oil on 8x8 board
Summer Sunday walk on Doctor Kay Drive

We spotted this little girl out on an early Summer morning with her Dad and the family dog. She was looking very proud walking with her pet on the leash Dad slightly ahead. The reeds and grasses were full and the sun made the tall grasses catch the suns rays and making it a perfect little picture of a Sunny Sunday morning!

Pine Farms Orchard. after the storm.

Oil on 8x8 board
Pine Farms Orchard. after the storm.
This summer has given us some incredible storms,
one of which made gave a spectacular sky over
the Apple Orchard. I found this picture on Facebook
as I loved the colours and decided to try and paint
it. It's on 8 x 8 board. which for me proved to
be a little difficult painting wet on wet and working
all the array of lights and darks but, the effect
I think came through,maybe better on a bigger board
next time.?

"Early Spring at Onice Farm"

"Early Spring at Onice Farm" oil on 11x14 board

The picture was taken early spring this year, it was a lovely mild sunny day at Onice Farm where these Icelandic horses live, they enjoy beautiful surroundings of hills and dales which the horses love to graze.

The grass had only just begun to sprout so the pickings were a bit lean, which they didn't seem to mind. 

Painting this picture I tried to give the grass and the Hills behind the feeling of warmth for the beginning of this year after such a long cold winter was behind us!
