Autumn sky, autumn leaves



A sketch on canvas, which I will work into. This is 92x92cm, acrylic and charcoal on linen. The leaves are turning and falling here!

One painting leads to another

Painting is certainly addictive, sometimes one idea leads to another. This large painting is going back into storage for a while while I think about it, in the meantime it has spawned lots of ideas about colour and using marks in a really free way. BTW, it is too large to hang so I have propped it up in my sitting room.....

Painting taking shape



I feel that this painting is starting to take shape, it is so much larger than work I have done before. This make scale an issue, and keeping the marks simple and proportionate. I also have this smallish green painting just about finished.

Petals, a sketch



A small (40x50cm) sketch to support my large painting. My garden is full of scattered petals and flowerheads at the moment, the gusts of wind and September sun are an evocative combination

Sunny work afternoon

Work continues apace on my huge painting. I am loving this process so much.....the wide open spaces!!
