It’s always fun to pick up the palette knife and start a new theme. There are several I am currently working on, from recent trips to gather material to paint. Sometimes I’m instantly drawn to a picture and other times it can take several days of pouring over my pictures to find inspiration. Autumn in New Zealand has had my concentration captured for a while, but now it’s on to the UK and Paris from my Christmas trip. It was a very cold time to travel, but hopefully you will enjoy the next series of winter views.
