Sunset SII Leicester Mercury Feature!

Well, I was really pleased to see my painting in print in the Leicester Mercury on the 16th of Feb! The picture quality of my painting is not too good as the colours look a little muted, they are much more vibrant on the actual painting, obviously the photograph of the sunset has good clarity. Nevetheless, you can hopefully see the comparison of the skies in both pictures.

They are shown above - side by side

Sunset SII

Since re-posting Sunset II on the blog I have been contacted by the Leicester Mercury who are, I am excited to say, featuring my painting on their 'Mailbox' page (page 14) on February 16th! Although it's just for a bit of fun it is still going to be exciting to see one of my paintings in the local newspaper!! I hope to be able to post the featured item on the blog once it is published.....Can't wait!

I have not picked up my brushes for many months now but am feeling rather inspired to get back to my painting now! I hope to start a new project in the next week or so -
so watch this space!
