A few more layers on this Barn Owl commission, still focussing on getting the colours and lighting right (and the correct level of ‘cosy’ for the tree nook home I’m making for them ☺️) before I start in on the tiny highlights and spotty feather pattern, so excited about these last touches, they really being the bird to life! #barnowl#originalart#oilpainting#artistsoninstagram#owl#birdart

Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it.

Time to post a few more paintings to break up the heartbroken poetry. I've moved away from trees in recent weeks, I've needed a break from thinking about things that I have become, slow but sure, far more comfortable leaving in the past. For now anyway.
I've taken to painting flowers, orchids in particular at the moment, which I used to enjoy, growing myself. This is a second stage of catharsis and closure for me, as I mourn and come to terms with the guilt of what I did to the other woman who left my life some months ago now.
I once had quite the greenthumb, although I have not been able to indulge that urge for some time now, busy as I am still picking up the pieces of a life I ruined through my own actions. Once settled, though, I hope to return to this hobby again.
I feel I ought apologize again for the less than perfect lighting available to me. I don't have the time, patience, or living conditions for much better than this just now.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I did painting them. Xoxoxo
I find these colours so soothing. I’ve been wanting to paint with a lot more freedom and expression and just paint what comes to mind... which was this! So much fun to paint 🥰 #wip#oilpainting#art#allaprima
White Cheeked Honeyeaters in the Heathland.
Had a bit if fun with this one. I love to pull leaves and flowers out of a dark background. The Heathland is so busy and jam packed full of plant species. The only thing missing in this painting are some peaflowers and wattle! Is there room? 😀
1906г. Холст, масло. Размер: 55 x 50,5 см. Городская галерея в доме Ленбаха, Мюнхен.
Картина напоминает старинную мозаику, в ней есть фольклорные и сказочные мотивы. Была написана в то время, когда Кандинский еще не пришел к абстрактному искусству. «Двое на лошади» - воплощение романтичности и нежности. Художник говорил, что воплотил в картине "многие свои мечты" и во время работы чувствовал сердечный трепет, как настоящий поэт. Темная цветовая гамма картины разбавлена более яркими красками. Преобладает синий цвет, который, по мнению Кандинского - "типично небесный цвет, и при сильном его углублении развивается элемент покоя".
