Oil on board, 60x45cm. Unfinished.
First time I`ve uploaded a photograph of a painting which is barely started ! However, I`m so excited about this painting`s prospects and besides, many people seemed to fascinated by the process of painting itself. Here`s a work in it`s very early stages (after about 1.5 hours work). The drawing composition and "tonal" layout of the picture have been established. Some viewers might prefer me to stop at this point (then I could label myself An Impressionist !) But for me this is just the beginning. I`ll update the photo here as the painting unfolds.
"Auchnacree" when you boil it back to the original Gaelic means Field of Treasure. There was indeed a "hoard" of ancient valuables discovered here some years back.
The image here is now phase 2 of the painting, after perhaps 5 hours work in total. Time to let it dry prior to commencing phase 3. Several other paintings on the go at the moment. See them here shortly.
