Since Christmas my time has mostly been taken up with preparing for our daughters wedding which took place on Saturday 12th February, so life is now gradually getting back to normal for me. I have been secretly painting a picture for their wedding present. Attending Jamel Akib’s online painting classes regularly has given me not only the confidence to now take pet portrait commissions in oils as you have seen from previous posts, but also gives me the opportunity to challenge myself with some different subjects. Having enjoyed some of the landscape paintings I have produced so far, I have painted a favourite place of my daughter and new son-inlaw. A beautiful place to capture, Holy Island, Lindisfarne.
I think they seemed to like it.
