Winter (oil on board 32cm x 25cm)

It really is winter, but this painting is based on a still photograph that I took from a documentary film called "La Vie Modern".  I like to feel free to take images from anywhere - it's what you do with it that counts.  I found this one to have a slightly melancholic feel to it that says something about being in the middle of winter, and working in monochrome (more or less) always appeals to me.  We are past that point now, so Happy New Year!


  1. Your painting certainly has a very bleak atmosphere , it makes me feel quite cold.

  2. I agree, it is quite a bleak image. The sun doen't shine every day! It might get boring if it did...
