Keith Proctor original oil paintings

Bear Hug 40"x 30" 

Missing you 40"x 30" 

Don't get me started 20"x 20"
Its been a while , shown above are two recent oil paintings and one from last year ( Dont get me started ) , the title "Don't get me started" was suggested by a chap i met at a show after i described the painting to him , i really like it , its good to add a little humour so thanks to him .
I have quite few shows coming up and will put the details up soon , thanks to the those who have "Liked" me on Facebook , I'm probably the only person on the planet who doesn't use it so i thought i had better get with it ! , i suppose it will grow on me in time .
I haven't been painting as much recently , "not intentionally" ive just slowed to a crawl for some reason , i suppose its good to slow down or leave it for a while every now and again  , ill come back refreshed and all that . Click a image to enlarge

DOWN HILL RACER : Original oil 20" x 20" available direct , keithproctor@live.co.uk
There is a lot of paint on this one , i recently started using super heavy gesso which is basically a thick white primer used to prepare the canvas before painting , i apply it with a pallet knife , let it dry and then coloured the surface blue and green before painting .
 To paint the snow i used Titanium white mixed with Turquoise and a large flat brush , snow changes colour throughout the day reflecting the colour of the sky and it looked Turquoise, the red sledge is the opposite of green and the blue of his wellies is the opposite to the orange of his hands , happy with this :)

Close Encounter / Original oil  24" x 24"
This is a recent original oil painting , i did a few preparatory sketches first which i don't normally do , i think it did help, a while ago i completed a similar painting to this but though i would try again , i wanted a little more dry brush , a little more warmth and very loose brush strokes so had to be confident and quick , "looks simple" but effective i hope ,  i am pleased with it , never totally happy though , i think that's what keeps most "Artists / Painters" going . 
It is for sale and available direct :  please email keithproctor@live.co.uk for details .
