This week i started a new painting. I am really into dramatic skies at the moment! The dark hues against the bright vivid colours are really exciting! I scumbled in the sky with a glaze and then put the horizon and trees in with a brush. Interestingly i painted the trees in roughly as i will then be painting in the negative space around them later. This will allow me to achieve more refined, finer branches rather than trying to paint them in with a tiny brush! So i will have to think backwards for that one, i can't wait! Unfortunately i will have to wait though as it was the final week of my creative oil painting course this week but i have enjoyed it that much, i have signed up for next term!

It's week 10 of my oil painting course and my second painting "Northern Lights" is finished! I just had to brighten the moon once more, add a bit more light to the lights themselves and the fun part - spattering in the stars!! It was brilliant fun getting my toothbrush out and spattering white paint onto my painting, the sky just came alive! I am so pleased with my painting, it is going to take pride and place by the Christmas tree over the festive period.
|The finished piece! As you can see this pic is hot off the press as it is still wet in parts!|
|The spattering technique is really effective for creating stars!|

Here are my entries for the Tigerprint Christmas Competition. The brief is to think about the things that give you that Christmas moment. So here's mine!
|Santa, wrapping presents, hanging stockings, playing in the snow and kissing under the mistletoe. That sums up Christmas for me!|
