Marble Mania!

Continuing with the Marble theme, here is Marble no. 3 of my 'Finding my Marbles' series...

'Alone Time'

8 x 8 inches, Oil on deep canvas

This one seemed to take an age to dry and my 'marbleous' (snort, snort) assistant Geoffrey was getting a little frustrated with all the waiting around...! 

...But now Marble no. 4 sits in it's place and I'll be posting that soon. It's another small one, but I'll be doing another biggie soon too! I wonder how long it'll be before I'm sick of marbles? I'm not even close yet!!

Happy painting all!

WIP Complete!!

Finally I have completed my large Marble painting!

'Marble Medley'...

18" x 24" Oil on Stretched Canvas

I have to say, painting them almost made me lose my marbles altogether! There was a lot of concentration involved and my eyes are a little googly right now as a result!

This one was very much inspired by the tin that the marbles came in...

And here is my fabulous assistant, Geoffrey, giving the 18" x 24" painting some scale...

It's one of those paintings that looks really effective when you stand right back and as you move closer, the abstract shapes and brush-marks that make the painting, become more visible.

On to a new one now - another small one. Then another biggie I think!

Hope you're enjoying the my marble series so far!

Happy painting all :0)

Work in Progress...

I have nothing actually finished this week, but I do have something in progress to share, which is currently propped up in the corner of my studio awaiting my return...

This is the result of a burst of inspiration, following this marble painting I did shown on my last post...

I enjoyed painting them so much, I feel a series coming on!

Anyway, the new one in progress is somewhat bigger than my last, at 18" x 22". But as well as some biggies, I think I'll do some more smallies too :0)
Watch this space!!

And for those of you following the 'Naked Challenge', just a reminder that April's list of words will be up on the 1st, just in case you want to join in!

Happy painting all!
