Painting at Dusk

Completed a couple of days, Winter cottage, Dusk. I spent 3 sessions on this piece, returning to the same spot each day. Dusk is a very magical time of the day, the subject appears to glow and everything seems quiet, it’s as though nature is preparing itself for the night.

Despite the positive comments I have had about the cow in this painting, it’s actually a horse in a jacket! You can’t win them all I suppose.

This is a painting from a large series of works exploring this old cottage in different seasons, times of day and weather. I often describe painting my subject as ringing out a wet cloth. What I mean by this is that I will stick to a subject until I think I have learnt as much as I most possibly can. Sometimes I do this by working on a piece for multiple sessions or by making rapid paintings one after another in a single session.

Winter cottage at dusk is a possible submission for the Royal Society of Oil Painters in 2015.

I now dedicate the rest of this day to painting…..
