Stourhead Stable

Well, what did you expect?  No one offered a better name for this painting so I was left to my own devices.  Does it look like a stable?  No, actually it looks more like a garage for elegant early automobiles, but the word "garage" doesn't actually trip lightly off one's tongue.  So "stable" it is - for now.

Day 3's work:

At this point - well, some things I like and some I don't - as always.  It's already overworked, but it isn't finished.  The copper beech that hangs over the building (whatever you want to call it), the bushes and the burn barrel need more work, and heaven help me I wanted to be able to do something about the bush on the left talk about overworked!) and the driveway.

Today's work is, I hope, the end even though I know Sharon will have suggestions to make it better.  

For example, the copper beech, and that's just for starters. 


  1. I entered a lengthy paragraph stating everything I love about this painting, and forgot to post it. How annoying. Let me sum it up by saying I think your perspective is dead on, the composition inviting, the vegetation lush and beautiful. It has got to be one of my favorite paintings. Well done.

  2. I really like it and I don't understand what you mean by "over worked."
