New Oil Paintings.

I have finished some new paintings.
First is from a picture taken on the Great Ocean Road.
Not taken by me but a close friend.
It is painted in Oil on board and is 26" x 20"

"The Cliffs."



















Second is just a tree!
I think it is a ghost gum and was painted using another photo taken by the same friend.
I'm not sure it's entirely completed yet. I may return to it.
It's Oil on board and is 24" x 17".

"The Tree"

These are amazing Shelly!! I have been wanting to tackle oils for a while, but find it a bit daunting.
I might email you for some pointers. The Ocean Road one is awesome. It's hard to get water right, but you've done it! :))

You have really caught the look of the water over sand on the ocean road one. They're both great but that is my favourite.
