The Longest Night
Managed to grab a couple of hours this evening to finish this little painting, which I have been working on for the last couple of days. It's really small, about 6 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches but I'm really pleased with it. I might use the image for my christmas cards. I've gone back in and brought out the colour a little with coloured pencils, and there are gold highlights. What I'd really like to do now is have a go at doing this as a linocut - something I haven't tried since I was at college, but I just love linocuts, and think a simplified version of this would work really well. Anyway, I might have to add that to my ever growing 'to do' list! In the meantime I have listed the painting on ebay, here.
My thanks to all who have purchased from me during my Etsy sale - I really appreciate it, and hope you love your prints when they arrive!
