The Romneya Poppies are outstanding this year, and a lovely subject for an oil painting.
The marigolds I am growing this year are a lovely mix of rusty oranges and creams, perfect to join my golden lilies.
Golden Lilies, a magnificent presence in the garden. They are fading fast but I have captured them in this oil painting which is part of my 'arc of gold' series. I planted this new part of the flower garden in June and it is full of promise. An arc of gold that will be back-lit by the afternoon sun.
I am loving my working environment.
The painting of Tithonia that I showed a corner of yesterday. I love that saturated orange.
Can't seem to do without half a dozen tools, it suits my style.
Painting in the flields of Viper's Bugloss and Corn Marigolds above Nanjulian last week.
Just come in from the garden, realising I shall have to wait until tomorrow to finish this painting. It is three times the size of the others and is a composite of two parts of my vegetable garden (obviously flowers too) that I am combining as I go. Enjoying the process but best to finish it when I am fresh.
This may be my favourite painting to date.
The amazing weather continues so I continue to paint outdoors, today on the cliffs above Penberth.
