Another Still Life today... Fruit Bowl.

Sunlight was streaming through the window a bit and thus the light was constantly changing but such are the challenges of painting in natural light..

and with a 'digital' frame..

Another go at a vase of 'orange' roses....I have a frame to fit this one...

A view of the embankment at Chelsea.. I think it's the Albert Bridge on the left which was being renovated at the time.

The Michelin Building in South west London.

When I was growing up in London, pretty sure you could get your tyres changed on the forecourt there. Last time I went it was used as an Oyster Bar, Flower Seller and as the offices for Hamlyn  Publishers. I visited trying to interest them in some Book Illustrations.

I try to avoid painting on Sunday but, today, some orange roses cried out to be painted...

Two today... Still Life and a painting of Trafalgar Square (from a photograph alas but I think it works OK).. I'm pretty sure Vincent would have used photographs if they had been more readily available (I think there are one or two examples of his paintings from photographic images)..

Not really into this 'Blogger' scene... perhaps I should publish daily but, I'm trying to produce a painting a day and this seems a good place to publish the works.

Here are a couple from Wednesday (two days ago)..
