Another of the ten

Still Life with Cherries
Oil on board  8 x 6"
Bridget Hunter 2011


Another of the ten small paintings for The Whitehouse Gallery.  I used an old painting - posted on blog previously - as the resource for this wee work. I wanted to see what happened if I painted it again on a smaller scale and using the softer brushes once more. The one obvious change is the bowl which went its own road to become white and a different shape entirely. I think there was a bit of "the devil may care" attitude going on here !!

A Small Painting.

Red for Summer
 Oil on board  8 x 6"
Bridget Hunter 2011

I've almost finished 10 small paintings for the Christmas Show " Little Wonderland" at The Whitehouse Gallery, Kirkcudbright. I used watercolour brushes with thinner oil paint this time and enjoyed the way the paint could be applied more fluidly and which allowed more direct drawing with the brush. This is not the usual way for me as I normally love the thick butteriness of the medium.

A postcard to Katherine

This is the postcard I sent to Katherine 
 (MAKING A MARK) in London. It shows part of the Topiary garden at Chateau Dumas where I recently spent a week with Joan Lawson and her painting school.
