Lola and tete-a-tete's
(First though, I had to clean the whole kitchen because the sunlight was highlighting the dust everywhere! Think Miss Havisham's mansion, but with less cobwebs...)
It was as though the painting was channelled through me. Sorry if that sounds New Age ... it felt like that to me, and I like to explain things to you ;)
I stood back at the end, drew a breath and thought 'whew'. Who did that? It didn't seem as though I had.
Oils on canvas board. 30 x 24cms.
Lola didn't hang around on the table too long. In fact she was using it as a temporary look-out post to see if Maisie was around below. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology - I know, you don't often hear ME saying those words - I snapped a few photos quickly on my new iphone 4, emailed them to my (no longer new!) iPad and this was my painting set up...
Et voila! Looks even more gorgeous in real life! On this photo you can't see the places where the paint is applied more thickly, and some of the shadows look a bit washed out here)
For a special treat to celebrate my 100th blog post here's another Lola and flowers painting you may like ;)
I would like to sincerely thank you all for following along with me, and all your lovely comments which come by text, email, comments on the blog and in person - which boost me up more than you could ever know! :)
