Cottages and Garden, small paintings

, 12:35

I have taken a brief break from my usual pastels and returned to some very small paintings, basically to produce a few entries for a local event. It is some while since I painted this small, but I found it relatively easy to return to it. The cottages above are 4x4 inches (10x10cm), painted on a heavily-gessoed canvas panel, using acrylics. The next painting further below is a large court-garden folly, probably used for shelter from sun and rain. It is painted on a 4x3 inch gessoed mdf panel, again in acrylics.

Some years ago I used to produce 3.5 x 2.5-inch ACEO paintings (art card editions and originals) and put them through Ebay; these days it just isn't a viable exercise, by the time one has paid listing fees, sellers' fees, and what have you. Each of these paintings took me around 4 hours to complete; maybe a bit more. When such works only fetch on average £5 to £10 on Ebay, it really isn't worth the effort to list them there. I do occasionally do them, but only for myself or maybe a local event/exhibition.
