This week in art class...

... we were painting things inspired by the work of Joaquín Sorolla, 'Spanish Master of Light'.

I painted this based mostly on a photo I took when we were canoeing on the Helford estuary, but I added a seal and a swimmer for no particular reason.  This is quite a large painting by my usual standard, A2 size. I'm pleased with the light and colours, though as usual it doesn't look quite as vibrant in the painting as in real life..



And here is... well, I had intended him to be an orc, but Pp, who is versed in these matters, thinks he is an ogre.  With a kitten friend.  (Pp says: "You said you were going to paint a monster, but you have painted the world's SOFTEST ogre!"  Which is, I suppose, true.


(I didn't paint the ogre in art class, he just came to me as an idea one evening.)
