Botswana Herd Boy and Cattle Finished

I have finally finished this painting (Botswana Herd Boy and Cattle).This painting made me realize that the way I am using oil paints is changing , I am starting to apply the paint a little more thickly than before. In the past I would dilute the paint with Turpentine and linseed oil and and use the paint thinly and sparingly.

I Think this change has been prompted  by the things I have learnt from other Artists on blogspot , and I feel that I have grown as an artist during the past year.Here is just a sample of the many artists ,that through their blogs have had a positive influenced on my art, Karin Jurick , Arto Isotalo  ,  Adebanji Alade ,and Antti Rautiola  go  see some of their work and feel inspired!

This is terrific. You certainly capture the feel of our beautiful land. And yes, I agree, the lions certainly look really good now with their new hairstyles and shady trees!
