Painting upside down

I’m still working away on my fishy pictures. Now that I’ve laid down the main colours, I’m starting on the details – the trees, mountains, water, rocks and fish (of course). This is the hard work of the painting and I’ll take my time to get it just right.

…Which leads me to a wee tip to help you. If after a while you decide to repaint the sky, turn your canvas upside down to prevent pesky blue drips ruining the lower part of your work.

As you can see in the picture below, I repainted the sky on this view of Loch Morlich after I painted in lots of detail in the foreground. Skies are easy to redo (more on those another time) but imagine how annoying it would be to see my lovely mountains and salmon ruined.

Colourful Cairngorms 

Newly added to my online shop – paintings from the series inspired by vintage railway posters. Now it’s easy to have a look at the work and buy online (with free shipping!).

Working on getting other galleries sorted, including some fishy pictures.

A wee preview

With a packed summer of exhibitions and craft fairs about to start, I’ve been busy preparing my work. Painting, framing, printing mugs and packaging up greetings cards, along with lots of other little tasks that come along with these events.

Got some new paintings framed for the various shows I’m involved in (See Exhibitions page and Events and Workshops page for more details of where I’ll be). A couple of classic fish portraits and a favourite view of Loch Morlich, looking up to the Cairngorms.

There’s a few more in the pipeline, which I’ll try and share when they’re done!

New paintings: Loch Vaa and Avielochan

Here’s a couple of new colourful pictures I’ve just completed. One’s a different view of Avielochan and the other is Loch Vaa, where I’ve spent many a day trying to catch trout in past years.

They’re both now on sale at High St Merchants in Grantown.

There are also some new pine prints on the way. Will let you know when they arrive.

Otherwise, I’m working away on new pictures just now – new simple landscapes and fishy portraits. Will post some pictures when they’re done.

Keep it simple, Strathspey

Finally finished these pictures. I’m beginning to feel more comfortable working in this new style and managing to resist the voice in my head calling “ADD MORE STUFF”!
