So due to obvious reasons, art evening classes have been postponed. Now that I’m allowed to have some (well spaced) friends about, we’ve got together to paint and draw in my top floor studio. All very pleasant, with records played … Continue reading

The first look through a book you’ve designed is a special time. A mixture of trepidation ‘is there any mistakes in the printing, design or copy?’ and the joy of having a physical example of your work. Here’s a film … Continue reading

All these sketches were made last Sunday, in a dry, bright, poppy strewn garden. Poppies are so vibrant, the simple shapes and intensity of colour please me. Perspective and flower drawings are interesting, how you can suggest depth with the … Continue reading
Painting after the event. The lack of model. Things get more plastic, colours stronger, design more obvious. The driving ideas in this work are sunlight on form, interiors and what is real in the world of the painting. Again, Matisse … Continue reading

How quickly things can build. Since last week I have had two sessions at different times of the day. The best light is at 5pm but I’m almost always cooking for the family then. Due to a haircut (I was … Continue reading
This canvas I paint over every few years with a self portrait. Good practice, plus, with photography being what it is, there is still a record of the last version. Self portraits usually look a bit odd, an intense stare, … Continue reading
