Untitled in Greens

Untitled in Greens

Oil on board  20x20"
Bridget Hunter 2012

A painting from a photo taken last year at Culzean.  I've changed it from landscape to square format because, being a bit "Scroogelike", I had a frame that size and shape from another painting and wanted to use it. No real artistic reason then -  more a case of needs must !!

I'm at a loss as to thoughts for a title. It's a view of a field at Culzean at a time when lush greens, due to our sometimes wet climate, were everywhere. 

There is no gold in the painting and I don't know why it appears as if there is. 

My photo used as a reference.

Sketchbook Blog

It's been a long while since I bothered with my other Blog  'Bridget Hunter's Sketchbooks' ,  about a year probably, since most of my sketches are really done as resources for paintings and full of scribbles and notes or studies. But I've been a bit inspired lately by some of the wonderful Sketching Blogs around and how the sketches are finished works in themselves.
So I've decided to have a go again at proper -grown- up- sketching for the pure pleasure of drawing, and posting these more often should the results be 'blogworthy' !

Hence, a new blog banner.
I'd like to have a new more interesting blog title but at the moment I just can't think of anything. Any ideas welcome !!!

Path to the Loch

Oil on board  24 x 20"
Bridget Hunter 2012

Another painting started from a pencil sketch then worked up at home. I seem to have been painting very dark skies but sometimes the sky does go dark and the land seems to glow beneath it. We've had a very warm and dry 2 weeks - unbelievable here at this time of year - and yet today there's a forecast of snow. Last week flip flops, this week boots again. "Only in Scotland" people are muttering!
