more poppies underway
These little works are all on a block paper 15cm x 15cm. I don't particularly like the paper (it is 300gsm cold press with a strong texture, I prefer hot press smooth), and it's a real discipline for me to paint so small. They are useful exercises and I can have several on the go at once, but still pack them into a locker at night. This afternoon they go home though, tomorrow I pull down the exhibition here.
Sorry about the bad lighting once again. I parted with one tiny painting yesterday - a visitor brought me a book as a gift, so I invited him to choose a painting. He left with this one; it was a bit more finished than this but I hadn't photographed it:
Today I am grateful for random acts of kindness.
