Latest Paintings

These are some of my more recent efforts. Since moving painting has become more difficult in that I have had other things interfering, and so I've not been painting so often.

12" x 9" Fontenay not 140lb

The Secretary Bird for the `Paint Colorful Birds for Fun' community on Facebook. I decided to do a head shot rather than the whole bird so I took the easy route!

16" x 12 Waterford not 140lb

Beyonce - from a black and white cover photo in the Observer Weekend magazine. On the original photo both the hair and skin looked very bland so I jazzed this up a bit.

Tropical Beach Scene -18 x 12" Fabriano Artistico 140lb not.

This was done for an AVA session titled `On the Beach'.

A simple effective painting, Peter. I said at the time how much I liked you handling of the tree. It is lovely

Jan Weeks said...

I agree with Yvonne, the palm trees in the beach scene work really well. I also like the bird. I wouldn't like to get in the way of that beak, but it's a good loose painting.

Peter Ward said...

Thanks Yvonne & Jan. Actually I like the bird best!

Oscar Solis said...

Regarding the Secretary bird painting, I like how the greenish tint works with the red, which, by the way, is really bright and strong. Well done, sir.

Three good paintings Peter. Terrific colours and great trees in the third.

Peter Ward said...

Thanks Oscar. Complimentary colours.

Thanks Ray. Bit of a mixed bag but I quite like all of them,.
