I've been working on this painting for a few months now.
It's always the same, I start off quickly, not knowing what it will be.
This is the thing I love the most about painting, I don't have to be in control or organised.
But as the painting progresses and things start to emerge, the painting slows down.
It's a bit like playing chess, and the next move has to be more considered.
This is one of the largest paintings I have done and I've really enjoyed chucking the paint around on this one!


  1. I love it. Never having painted anything in my life, I'm intrigued by the artistic process as you describe it.
    The deer has a wonderful quality of stillness and calm, yet he's fully alert and curious too. Just as he should be! xxx

  2. It is a delight to look at this painting.

  3. Actually really interesting to see the differences and similarities in your two mediums of working, paint and stitch.

  4. She's a beauty, do you keep all your paintings? your house must be chock a block with loveliness...

  5. Thank you all so much for your comments and feedback.
    Painting can be a bit of a lonely old existence and it is so uplifting to get responses from the outside world!
    I really appreciate it chucks x


Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
