Daily painting #114

Lemon and Lime on cloth
5 x 7 inch oil
I had a weekend off from painting, as it was Mum's and my birthdays last week, so we went for a meal on Saturday night and I had a lazy day on Sunday.
Back to painting today, so here are two of my favourite fruits, Lemon and Lime.
I have also been working on some small 10cm square canvas boards today, will post pics soon.

Daily painting #113

Apple and Pear
5 x 7 inch oil
We have got lots of apples in the house at the moment, we only have two very small trees, but they do produce a lot of fruit, and they are a nice red colour.
I also picked some more strawberries from the greenhouse today, they are only little ones, but its great to still be picking them this late in the year.

Daily painting #112

5 x 7 inch oil
I stuck with the fruit on cloth again for today's painting, but the cloth is a bit plainer for this one. I think this is only the third time a clementine has featured in one of my daily paintings, I don't seem to use orange paint much at all, so this was a nice change.

Pewter with Pears

Another Plum painting today, The little pewter tankard is one that Mum found one day in a little second hand place in Ruthin, its a bit bashed up, but its a good size and it has a nice hammered texture.

Daily painting #109

Plum Trio
5 x 7 inch oil

I have only painted Plums a few times, I tend to overlook them in the shops for some reason. This set up is the same as I did for figs a week or so ago, and the lighter background work's well with the rich red colour. the background is Paynes grey and white mix.

Daily painting #105

Lemon on cloth
7 x 5 inch oil

Just a Lemon for today. I remember at the start of these daily paintings I didn't like painting lemons at all, I now find them to be one of my favourite fruits to paint, it must be all the practice!. I think I will do a matching cloth with a Lime next.

Daily painting #103

Three Little Figs
5 x 7 inch oil
I Thought these Figs were such a nice colour and shape they would look good on their own, I think it has turned out ok, and the lighter background worked better than my usual dark colour.

Charlie's Apple with Pewter
5 x 7 inch oil
Today's painting is called Charlie's Apple with Pewter, Its hard to get apples with leaves on them if you don't have your own apple tree, so I have to thank Charlie from John Jones & Son Butchers, Ruthin for getting me a few. Thanks Charlie!

Red Pear with Fig
5 x 7 inch oil
For today's painting I had a red william pear and a fig, I haven't painted many figs as I don't like to eat them, but they were on offer at the supermarket, so they will just be painted. They are a nice colour, so different to my usual fruit.

Daily painting #100

Cherry Cupcake
7 x 5 inch oil
My 100th daily painting! I thought I should do something to mark my 100th so I got some cupcakes and added the cherry on the top. I haven't painted a cupcake in oils before, the case was a bit tricky, I am used to painting cupcake cases in acrylic, this was fun to paint, so I may have to do some more cakes.

Daily painting #99

Red Williams Pear on cloth
7 x 5 inch oil
Another fruit on cloth for No.99 , the trim on this one is slightly different from last time, I am enjoying doing more detailed elements in the daily paintings, and I think the lace cloth works well with a single fruit.

Daily painting #98

Cherries on cloth
5 x 7 inch oil

I love painting cherries! so here is another trio, I am so glad I am still able to get nice cherries, I am sure as winter comes nearer they will be harder to get, and more expensive.
I can hardly believe I will be doing my 100th daily painting this week, not sure what it will be yet, but I couldn't have got this far without all my brilliant eBay customers, so Thank you!

Conker Video

10 x 10 cm oil

hope you enjoy watching!

This is my third video so far, and I have got this one down to just less than 4 minutes,  The conker is from a tree in the village that I used to go to as a kid to gather conkers, brought back good memories of throwing sticks up at the tree to get more down.
