,ome of you may be aware I have a solo exhibition coming up in the Autumn and I am lacking a body of work that is diverse in subject matter and media so I have set myself a target of completing various sets of paintings in thus media and subject matter.
I have been painting a series of oils for commissions since Christmas and have gotten in to the flow and decided to carry it on. It started with a piece for my Dad who turned 50 in December. I had only a few days to produce the painting which is of a Mustang "Red Tails" WW2 fighter plane. One of my Dads favourite planes. I started on Christmas Eve evening and worked for the next few evening until the 28th to have it done in time. I am pleased with the results if not a little rushed. I painted a baby for my next commission in oils black and white, the cute smile on the baby's face was great to capture.
I then moved on to finishing a commission of 2 horses, mare and foal in oils I originally started in September, followed by a commission of a Dachshund dressed in a woolly hat and jumper. Once finishing my commissions I carried on with oil paintings of my own interests, a Jaguar E-Type car and currently I am painting a VW Beetle. See below for examples
