The Creative Oil Painting Course Begins!

I attended the first of my 11 classes of creative oil painting courses yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed myself!  I am completely new to oils.  Having only be shown how to use watercolours, gouache and my favourite media acrylic I thought it was about time I picked up some tips on oil painting as a new challenge.  It was also good to be around some lovely like minded people and to say it was our first class we all got stuck in!  This is the beginning of my painting!  Watch this space to see how it develops each week!!!!..........

Hiding Butterfly

Hiding Butterfly is a new painting which has just been added to my vastly growing collection of artwork!  

I discovered this butterfly hiding from me in a butterfly house on one of my summer day trips out and couldn't resist taking it's photo ready for me to capture in paint!  

Painted in acrylic on canvas, this beautiful image seems to have something to hide!  The beauty of the butterfly tries to remain a secret behind the foliage.  A discovery waiting to be found!  

This painting is available to buy at my website
