Yellow Plum and Peach

Title: Yellow Plum and Peach Oil on 9" x 12" wood panel

This one sat on my easel for the better part of a week and because I have been most of my painting outside of late, took a while to get this one finished. I thing I noticed about pain
ting outside is I have yet to achieve the colour intensity I can get with my still-life paintings but I am sure that will come in time.

The plum has some translucency to it which proved to be difficult to achieve but all in all I am happy with it. What do you think?

Still River

Title: Still River, Oil on 9" x 12" Masonite

Went out on Location the other day to a local park that the Credit River runs through, this portion of the river is a small section where it branches off from the main river and is quite low and muddy hence the warm brown tones for water, I was arguing with myself over this one as were all told water is blue so it took all my strength to actually paint it the way it was, I did add a bit of blue here and there just to make me feel a little better about it.

Currently this one is not for sale as someone has expressed interest in this piece.

Enjoy
