Lune Year

Summer, River Lune

This oil painting is part of my series, Lune Year. I’m painting the river every month since the big floods last December. I’m planning to exhibit them as a series to coincide with the anniversary of the biggest flood, on December 5th. Which might be slightly tempting fate.

Lune Year: Sycamore and Flood Grass

A short lived spell of warm sunny weather in the past few days has finally brought a touch of green to the trees. This sketch is of the brand new sycamore leaves opening, the grass from last December’s floods still wrapped tightly around the branches. Its mixed media; acrylic and pastel, on a watercolour background.
