In the studio today in Trindade.

 I mainly work plein air so this is  somewhat posed.

I can`t think of much that is more agreeable on a hot day than to sit shaded in this little grove and paint.

A view from a grove, Santo Antonio; little pictures

A view from a grove, Santo Antonio, oil on card, 17.3 x 14.7 cm




On a smaller scale again- the intimacy of a smaller scale is  confessional, like whispering.

My satisfaction with this little picture is such that I feel minded to return to a smaller scale and work with that closeness again for a while.

Some framed pochades

 St Mary le Strand, 2014, oil on card, 12.5 x 15 cm  






 Horseguards Parade, the lonely civil servant goes home, oil on card, 2014, 11 x 15 cm  





Flowers, oil on card, 18 x 15 cm, 2014





Aswan- evening from the Nile Hotel, oil on card, 2013, 14.5 x 13 cm





Luxor- feluccas, oil on card, 2013, 12 x 15 cm




I do feel that framing the pictures with a passepartout is generally better. With tight frames such as these they  can feel somewhat crampted, although the gap between from and picture edge in these certainly helps.

Thanks to E.L.D for these photos.
