Letter #41, on learning oil painting, starting a new collection, and going on "workation".
Thanks for sharing your oil paintings. Liking the loose and fluid style, and you've got the detail too. Love the fish and Raven! Enjoy your summer break. My wife and I, our children and grandchildren, have a 2 week family holiday in 3 weeks, in the south west of England. I'll be doing some plein air in oils. If I can produce to your standard I'll be well pleased!
I definitely will go and check your blog ❤️ your oils feel so bold, I can clearly see how determined you were doing them, isn’t it hilarious (and preposterous at times) that these swings of inspiration leave no room for “forever stable strategy”? Only change, only cycles.
