Rocky Start


Rocks (work in progress)

I was tempted to make a quick run into town last Friday to stick up a copy of The Crack page on the Art Club notice board, but checking with a phone call, I discovered the heating wasn't on and the members were on the point of giving up. As I don't have a key for the door at the moment, there wasn't much point in going.

But on the assumption that I will get there soon, I started this small oil, to be continued at the Club. It's on a rather violently green background, which may or may not be a good thing. It's also on a rather unstable stretcher, which is definitely not a good thing.

A beautiful palette and use of hard and soft edges - look forward to seeing it develop more but if it doesn't its about perfect as it is.

The problem with photography is that it can make paintings look better than they are. This one doesn't look finished when seen close to. But it'll have to wait to be finished. It's at the Club now.
