New work: Acrylic florals

Sometimes I need a break from the usual, so I had some fun with acrylic paint.  I worked on 8 x 8 inch gessoed wood panels and used a structure gel with a palette knife to add texture.  These are all available and are priced at £250 each.  Click here to see individual images.

New work available at the John Noott Galleries!

Four new paintings have arrived at the  John Noott Galleries in the Cotswolds.

En plein air: Still life painting outside

I took advantage of the intermittent sunshine and took my still life set-up outside. Above is the first one of the day. I used a bigger palette because the available space in my pochade box is very limited.
After an hour of cloudiness, the sun came back out and I painted a second one. I particularly like this one.
Here are all my recent fig paintings. The one at the bottom was done yesterday in my studio.

I’m back on Twitter!

I’m back on twitter with a new profile. I was taking a hiatus from social media, but with fresh ideas and more energy I am back to sharing my work and upcoming events. Twitter and Instagram are both another great way to connect with me and get updates. I will still be doing blog posts as well. See you on Twitter!
