I’ve completed my Horse With No Name painting and have now completed another of a big fat penguin. I don’t have photos ready to show you yet unfortunately. Soon I promise!
Also I’ve decided that varnishing the paintings is a good idea to give extra protection to the paint and it makes them easy to take care of too (as you can wipe them with a damp cloth without fear of chipping any paint off!).
I haven’t quite perfected my varnish finish. I’m trying to get the right balance of a lovely satin sheen to show off the colours without being too glossy and giving a nasty glare in the light.
So as I am away at my dad’s this week and as the paintings will need time to dry properly before they can be packaged up it looks as though it will be October before I am in a positon to start selling work. But it’s important to get it right and not make myself ill trying to do too much in too short a time.
So watch this space for more news and photos of a cheeky horse and fat penguin will follow.
