#295 - 15.7" X 15.7" ( 40cm X 40cm )
It has been quite a while since I've posted. Time does get away from you but I assure you that I have been painting. I really enjoyed my three weeks as 'Artist in Residence' in Phon Phisai, Thailand. I painted en plein air in oils ( watersoluble oils ) and watercolours along with sketching in ink using various fountains pens. And of course I also took lots and lots of photos. Over the coming weeks I will post works from my trip along with other paintings that I've completed since my return.
This painting, that I competed recently at home, is a lot larger that my usual work. You may notice that I have used a palette knife quite a bit throughout the painting. I found it really helpful in rendering the banana trees and other foliage in the background. The palette knife kept me from painting too much detail, and besides that, it was fun.
