Work in progress

Just thought I would add this post, of my latest Work in Progress.  It shows Bideford Bridge in North Devon.


There are buildings but because of the distance I won't detail them - after all you wouldn't see window frames or curtains at that distance!....so basically, the buildings are little spots of paint...how easy is that!


Using Atelier Interactive Acrylics it measures 16" x 11"

As I say, it is a work in progress, think I'll leave this to dry so far
and take another look at it in a couple of days time with 'fresh eyes'

  1. What a wonderful job on the water and shore. And love the little dots of paint for buildings!!! You teach a lot more than you probably realize in your descriptions and I appreciate it so much.

  2. Despite that it is not yet finished, it is now already very beautiful. I'm curious how it looks when it is completely off.

  3. Ann, this is wonderful. I love the great sense of distance and the sun shining on the faraway hills is perfect. This is one of those paintings I could look into for ages. Excellent work. ;-)

  4. I know what you mean about fresh eyes. Sometimes painting can be like typing; it is easy to be blinded against a mistake. I must admit though, I thought this was a photograph at first.

  6. Thanks Lynn - I'm so glad my descriptions help:)

    Thanks Renske - I get to a point in a painting when I want it to be finished but deep down know it isn't. That's why I will be looking at it again. Glad you like it.

    Thanks John - It was actually surprisingly easy to do, more fiddly than anything and time consuming with 'bits and pieces' - it's nice to know that it comes over to others as good though. Thank you.

    Thanks Bella - so nice that you thought it was a photograph, a compliment indeed and I appreciate you saying.

    Thanks Laurie - It worked out better than I had anticipated I must admit:)

    Looks like it's been a very successful painting....which I will still tweak a bit but not too much.
