Commissions

I am working on a large commission at the moment. It is 120x120cm, a beach scene with a huge sky. I enjoy commissions a lot, they often push me slightly out of my comfort zone which is very healthy thing. This painting has had a lot of discussion and thought put into it by my client and me, so I have clear idea of what she is looking for. Now I just need to achieve it!! I will publish a picture when it is a lot more finished, there is even going to be a little homage to her lurcher Poppy.


   Meet Poppy!

Cornish walk


 This is a work in progress, after a gorgeous weekend in Cornwall, in the midst of mad, windy weather. 90x90cm. Can you spot the rain in the colours......

Third sketch


 This is the the third sketch I have made before embarking on some larger pieces. It's all about colour in this picture, the inspiration for subject comes from my local forest, which is full of pathways as well as trees. The other two paintings I will use for  reference in larger paintings are below. All these small pieces are 40x50cm, acrylic on linen.

Getting my work photographed!

I will be selling prints of some of my artwork via HG Arts, an American company. Take a look at their work here. I am really looking foward to this collaboration.

I am having nine or ten of my paintings photographed this morning...very exciting!! I hope that his and others will look better under the care of an expert. Can't wait to see the results........

New painting on a spring day

Unbelievable! Spring seems to have tentatively arrived in my corner of Kent. I'm so cheerful!! This piece is 100x100cm, more work needed.

Another layer


Rain flowers

More work in progress, I have few paintings in my studio at the moment. I am working on a lot of very watercolour type layers before adding thicker paint - very unexepected results sometimes. Is it the rain outside that is inspiring my watery layers of paint?...(this is rhetorical, don't feel the need to reply).

Spring Feeling part two



I couldn't resist adding more to this painting...see here for the last rendition. Definitely finished now! I must hide it away so I am not tempted to work on it more!
