A new little picture.

The road from Joaquina, oil on card, 14 x 9 cm



In the small scale -the pictures are just a little bigger than a cigarette box- the effect of brush strokes and textures are exaggerated.

I paint these plein air- it's so hot now that working for more than an hour becomes quite tiring.

I love the little back roads of Brazil- the way they are swallowed up by the incredible profusion of nature, the amazing abundance here, and of the country as unexplored. I prefer the back roads of the interior to the beaches which are a public space, too open for my tastes: I prefer the sense of privacy one gets sheltered by the trees.
