Thank you for your friendship Ngaire. I see you are a Kiwi too so wonder which part of NZ you come from. I live 30 kilometers east of Taihape overlooking the Rangitikei River.
look forward to seeing more of your work and hope you have some success finding small bottles of walnut oil which you should be able to buy at either a health shop or food store.
About Workshop45, for some reason, I could not leave a comment below your painting. So I came here. Beautiful, Your value to me is very good. The drawing is very well done. It is not easy, the car is beautiful. You must take a lot of time to make the value and tone works. It is a cooler version but the colours are harmonized and very peaceful. Any suggestions? If I were you I would make the upper left conner a bit different colours, now that place looks flat. The frame work of the shelter could have different colour according to their location as Richard did. It would make the shelter more 3 dimention. Your cat is a baby and so cute, Your awning is Superb!!!
