I've been painting with watercolour lately, thanks to Inktober so, I decided to jazz up this little pumpkin harvest.

$90 - 6x6" original oil painting on 1/8" panel.
The lemon is telling a story to his little grape friends... obviously. ; ) There is actually a lot of transparent green in purple grapes. So, I added a green paper to the set up to match. Cheers.

I love this long and thin format. I've used it many times in the past and just rediscovered, (or rather reminded myself) how much I like it #doh. The photo reference, which is square, is from the gracious and talented Sarah Sedwick. It was quite a challenge to figure out how to crop the pic, but I enjoy that part of the process. I think it's important to zoom in, cutting parts of objects off, so the still life doesn't just sit in the centre with a bunch of boring space around it.

SOLD $90 - 5x7" original oil painting on 1/8"panel.
Well, the bird painting series continues! I think I'm on number 12 and 8 of them have flown off to new homes. I'm especially happy with this little yellow-breasted blue titmouse. He's got his own little branch and he seems quite content. You can check out the time-lapse painting of him over on my Instagram account here - https://www.instagram.com/noramacphailart/ . Cheers. : )

$90 - 6x6" original oil painting on 1/8" panel
This little garlic clove is casting a cute curvy shadow. 😉 I tried to get overhead and close up for an interesting composition for this piece. Also, I love it when the shadows fall onto two different coloured surfaces. So fun to paint and 'match up'. I really wanted to paint from life today because it's a good colour reminder and it really helps when I go back to photos for reference.
