Wintry conditions

Glad that the snow has gone and to get back into the studio. Have finished lecturing commitments for this year, so hopefully I can get a few more sessions in before 2018. Re the painting, I’m happier with the modelling, once this layer is dry I’ll reestablish some of the highlights.

Work in progress

Completed work on the painting today- helped by an early start and the fantastic weather. Titled ‘Daylight’. Will need a couple of weeks to dry now.

More work available via Artfinder soon. Please note any commission orders for Christmas(!) need to be in before the end of October, to allow for drying. Drawings and existing paintings need to be ordered before the 15 November to allow plenty of time for posting.


Getting very autumnal in the studio today. There was a fantastic sunset- photo credit to my daughter! Some progress on the painting too.

Thinking about a nice comment I had about my work… someone thanked me for sharing the stages of the paintings, rather than just showing the ‘final’ piece. It made me think of another question that I found hard to answer: How do you know when a painting is ‘complete’? I enjoy getting feedback about the stages, but they also help with my own decision making. I think that the ‘sketches’ I make on computer are like a map: it shows me where I want to go, but the route and the destination might end up not as expected! Here’s the change from the first to the second layer:


Changing phases of my paintings are the subject of Loop, a collaboration that I hope to screen soon on a larger scale.


Exhibition news: Original 200 continues at Cupola Gallery and Artwalk Wakefield is coming up on Wednesday 27 September: 5 – 9pm as usual.
