Work In Progress

It's been quite a while since I posted what I have been doing.

I have 4 oil paintings in progress at the moment.


This is from a photo I took of a burro in Alamos, Sonora on our little trip there, after about 5 minutes of Roy scratching him behind his ears they were best friends.  He was so cute. It is oil on canvas covered MDF board.  12 x 16 inches.



This an old well pump and pail.  I don't like the shape of the pail so am going to change that.  Oil on canvas covered MDF board.  12 x 16 inches.



This rooster was hanging around in our street for a few weeks, he was following one of our resident street chickens around.  His feathers had the most gorgeous colours.
  I have already titled it, El Rey de la Calle, or in English, The King of the Street.  It is also oil on canvas covered MDF board.  12 x 16 inches.





















And last; but hopefully not least, is this Pelican.  I took his photo out at the marina in San Carlos, Nuevo Guaymas, Sonora.  It is again oil on a regular canvas.  16 x 20 inches.




















All 4 of these are only in the beginning stages and there is much, much more work to do on them.  I took the photos inside and our wall colour tends to give everything a yellowish tint so they are not the best pictures; but will have to do for now.
