A simple subject, but immaculately done, Lesley. The subtle shifts of hues and tones are excellent.

Simple perfect subject and well observed. Not an easy one with it's mild colours and tones but lovely.

These studies are great Lesley and with immaculate subtleties

Great studies Lesley, I really like them.

Lovely study!

You're doing a superb job Lesley!

Thanks for all the lovely comments :)

Another mushroom, 5 x 7 ins oil. I'm enjoying the challenge of the subtle changes of colour of the mushroom and the white base. I'm learning a lot from these oil sketches; subtle tonal values, mixing colour and dealing with changing light. I set my mini easel in front of a bay window so I can appreciate how the light changes on my subject. Pochade nearly ready!

I love to paint water, with boats, buildings or simply the water in oils. I'm a regular at life drawing sessions where I usually get covered in charcoal!
