After Cezanne. 9x12 oils on board.

I`m doing a course at the moment, and this is part of it, a copy of a painting by Paul Cezanne. I did lose my way with the colouring, and I lost my patience in the end. But it did tell me that Paul Cezanne was a better painter than I had realised. There is seven lessons in this course and this is the second exercise. The next one will be a Landscape, more my cup of tea.

Old fashioned Watering can.

I haven`t posted this Watering can for any artistic reasons, I`ve posted it because there is a short story to it. My Wife and I went to a place called Rye, where there are lots of second hand and Antique Shops. There was this lovely Watering can in one of them, and we fell for it. Can`t remember the price we payed for it but we bought it. And at the time Rosemary said that it would look nice with some Poppies painted on it, so I agreed. Now that was 25yrs ago. But on Thursday of last week, I finally painted them. Of course I had`to sand it down and paint it mat black. We found a home for it straight away. So I say it is never too late to do something that you want to do. End of story.
