Dramatic Derbsyhire auction painting nearly ready for valuation
My large landscape painting of Derbyshire moorland is nearly finished. Its 3 foot by 2 foot (90cm by 60cm) which is the largest painting I've attempted so far. The canvas seemed like a vast monstrous unpaintable lump of canvas when I started but now is seems quite small. I have decided that painiting on this scale is not so scary after all.
The painting will be valued by a famous UK TV antiques expert so I'm quite nervous already! Later in the year it will go to auction at quite a prestigous event where hopefully some rich and generous person will pay alot of money for it. Its not the best photo in the world and when I have a better one I will upload it.
