|Sunrise at Honfleur. Oil, 8 x 6 inches. £99|
Continuing with the portrait theme this lady lives in an isolated house down a quiet lane on the edge of the woods near my village, she often appears quite unfriendly until you speak to her then her face lights up! She was very shy about sitting for her portrait but allowed me to persuade her to sit for a photo instead. Today I'll show her the result, and later next week when my exhibition opens I'll take her along to see it framed and hanging on the wall.
|Dame dans le bois. Watercolour|
Last week I was running a watercolour workshop here in France and by way of a change I organised for us to paint my neighbour Camille. He turned out to be a natural! he sat perfectly still throughout and provided us with an excellent few hours in his sunny garden. After which he invited us for aperitifs with his home made cider...turned out to be a very entertaining morning!
