Works on Panel

In preparation for some upcoming exhibitions I've been creating paintings that will be offered for sale. The following three works were painted on birch panel. Painting on wood is a very different experience from canvas... the paint glides over the panel surface rather than hugging it, as it does on the canvas. I'm really enjoying the effect and where appropriate I allow the grain of the wood to be integrated into the composition.

After all, wood tends to be very important to dogs...
