Elizabeth McCrindle A Scottish Artist

"My heart is in my eyes"...

Updated: 2017-12-11T03:11:38.242+00:00


"Caravaggio" Acrylic 8" x 8" £270


Acrylic 8" x 8"
Available from the studio.

Wanted to paint this fella for a long time, so on Monday passed I decided that it was a case of no time like the present. First time I saw him he reminded me of Walter Farley's Black Stallion books, because although he's officially grey, as a two year old he was almost black. Handsome and super fast on his good days, (Aidan O'Brien says he is the only horse at Ballydoyle to hit a top speed of 45 miles per hour) he captured my heart. I've portrayed him as his coat is turning to grey. Many thanks go to Michael R Smithson once again for kindly letting me use his photos as reference. Painted on a linen panel with clear gesso, using Atelier Acrylics.

Work in progress...


Wasn't in the studio today but this is the progress I've been making on the moo I'm painting. I'm trying to work bigger while keeping a loose style, this one is 10" x 14" which admittedly isn't big in some circles, but considering I've been working on teeny weeny 6" x 6" for a few years it's big for me. The main thing is I'm starting to get that feeling of painting is the first thing on my mind when I wake and the last thing I think about before I go to bed...that's good :)

Cold morning walk...


Very cold walking the dogs this morning on the country path, not helped by forgetting my gloves. That said, the walk was most enjoyable with crunching leaves underfoot and a smell of autumn in the air. Good to get back in the house though and have a warm cup of tea and now ready to make in roads on this painting of moo. It has been sitting on the sidelines waiting patiently for it's!

Lilly's Portrait...

Just realised I hadn't shared Lilly's portrait on my Blog. I know there were a few follower's on here who had asked why I hadn't painted her when I did the painting of Buddy. It was really just a time issue I always had something else on the go. But finally got round to it and here she is in all her!

They will be taking part in the Christmas Exhibition at Orchar Fine Art Gallery This will be my first time exhibiting at the gallery and I'm thrilled to be taking part.Working on some larger pieces at the moment, which I'm not going to jinx other than to say one features a moo and the other some horses. I've learnt from passed experiences of sharing works in progress that it's best to wait a bit before![...]

British Summer Time Ends


Not quite sure where this year has gone but here we are at the last Saturday in October and the end of British Summer Time. Have to admit it hasn't been the nicest of days in fact it's been wet and windy for most of it. But then so has most of October, here's hoping it starts to get a bit more seasonal from now on, a wee touch of frost would be nice. One thing we do get to look forward to is an extra hour in bed, so don't forget to put the clock back an hour.

Visitor to the garden...

A day in the garden...


Not much sun today but it was warm so I decided to work a bit in the garden. BB one of last years baby blackbird's still visits the garden even though she's all grown up. The minute she saw me starting to dig in the garden she came down knowing I'd throw some snails her way. She really is a beautiful bird. I'm making a border along the fence, I've actually been going to do for the last couple of years but never ever found the time. Didn't get it finished but at least a start has been made. A pretty starling with it's love heart breast and a jackdaw with it's piercing blue eyes make up the other photos.
Now it's time for bed, hopefully tomorrow will be another good!

A Wee Charmer...


One way to get the birds to pose is to give them props to use. This darling young starling was showing off her adult plumage starting to come through her baby feathers...right pretty don't you think :)

"Summer Path" Acrylic 6" x 8"


"Summer Path" Acrylic 6" x 8" £225

I'm quite lucky where I live as there is plenty of roads and paths to paint. One thing I have noticed though is most of the farmer's seem to be ploughing up their fields and growing crops. There are still a few have cattle but not nearly as many as used to, makes me a little sad. I'll have to travel further afield to find my models.
Glorious day here so I think I'll now go and find me a spot in the!
