Hare painting update

A quick update on the progress of the smaller Hare painting i'm working on.ive completed the underpainting and am now working on the next coat of oil and adding details to the head and ears.These are almost complete and once ive worked up the body fur i'll add in all the whiskers which should tie it all together nicely.

framed lemur painting

Just collected my little lemur study from the framers and thought i would show you all the end result as i was absolutely delighted with how beautiful the hand finished frame looked and more importantly how much it complimented the painting.The original is now available.

Two new Hare paintings underway

At the moment i have several oil pantings in very early stages including these two hare paintings.the topmost painting is a bit of an experimental one,where i aim to play with light and shadows and colours.I'm uncertain as to whether this one will work or just turn out as a hideous mishmash of colours but sometimes the images that start off a bit warily end up being the best,only time will tell.My second hare painting is a little more of a conventional study and quite a small piece so well within my comfort zone.I seem to be progressing the paintings at quite a slow pace right now as i go through one of my 'fidgety' stages where i find my concentration wandering(or not making an appearance in the first place)and so i'm constantly back and forth to the easel and consequently not getting very far with any of my fledgling paintings.i have several projects on the go away from my painting and i think thats the root cause of my wandering mind but hopefully tings will improve shortly.

Black leopard that i completed a little while ago has now been properly scanned and this is a much truer image of the painting.
