Back From the Framers

Portrait of Alison is ready for giving away. Here is a pic of the framed picture, with colours more true to the painting. Pick up is tomorrow.

  1. Hi David, I’m sure she’ll be thrilled with this, it’s brilliant! The colours are really fresh, and you’ve managed to inject a lot of character into the painting. Do you ever get you’re oil paintings framed with glass?

  2. Thanks Sonnie, glad you like it. I enjoyed pushing the colours in this one. I’ll try and keep that idea going.
    Re: glass or no glass – I used to put glass in some of my smaller oil paintings but I rarely put it on any at all now. It’s good to see the surface without the barrier, I think.

  3. yes, davy, these colours vastly improve things…… you say the subject is “Alison” ; she looks incredibly close in features to our mutual friend ” CC”, don’t you think ?
