I am just going to post the photo of this woodland oil painting, it seemed to take all week to paint. I kept rushing out to take photos of the woods in the glorious (but worryingly warm) February sunshine we had early in the week, so I sort of lost my usual rhythm with the painting. Still, I doubled down and worked hard and I am pleased with the final result.
This blog is made up of 5 photos/images that represent the stages that go into the process of creation of a woodland painting.
The wonderful Welsh woods that lie along the Parkmill Valley floor have given me years of inspiration for painting.
This is my most recent woodland painting of the pinewoods near Parkmill and Illston, on the Gower Peninsula.
I like this section of woodland as the pine needles on the ground deaden footsteps and although birdsong can be heard, it seems quieter than the surrounding beech wood.
This is the first woodland painting I have done for quite a while. This is a section of pine woods called Canisland Woods, near Parkmill, Gower.
