For those you who have seen my work before, you'll know that my palette has generally been very colourful. For that reason I decided to paint using a limited palette - in this case black, white and lemon which has been pretty interesting as I've had to think a lot more about light and shadow. Enjoy.
Had a studio tidy up - much needed and overdue anyway I came across these lurking behind some of the bigger canvases
Hi and a Happy 2014 to you all. For those of you who have visited before - thanks and welcome back and for those who are here for the first time - welcome.
This is the first one of the year, I'm planning on doing a lot more this year so watch this space. It's 100 by 50 cms and is available for sale, as are most of the works in the gallery. If you have any queries I'd love to hear from you
This is the next in the current series using the same palette and technique. This is the most abstract of them all so far. As usual with these there are many many glazes, and with the drying time between each glaze taking longer now that the rainy season is upon us. they take a while to complete. I've found that this technique is contemplative for me, with some cool music on the Walkman I'm happily away for hours
The rain has been lashing down today, great storm clouds have hovered and dumped their loads, cleaning the air and rushing down the streets in torrents.It's also started to run in under the window in my studio, before I noticed it. it ruined a canvas board painting and an entire sketchbook. Hey ho - so this is an ode to my small ruins. Charcoal on paper.
