I Hope you all liked them, and there will be more to come. I prefer keeping each series short like this. Small manageable goals makes the world go round 😂 ..I made that up. Happy painting 🙂👍
This marks the 5th and last sketch of this series. I will be doing more in future, but In the meantime It will be back to painting for a while. Hope you enjoyed the first lot of Drawings. And if you have any ideas for future ones and would like to share them. Leave me a comment 🙂
Say hello to my lovely mountain friend!..Painted for mother last Christmas, she wasn’t expecting this. She cried 😂 …My work was done.
Say hello to my lovely mountain friend!! 🙂 This was a gift for mother for Christmas last year. Painted on a 8 x 10 inch canvas board…She cried. And so…my work was done.
This one was a piece that I was commissioned to paint as a present for somebodys loved one at Christmas. Reference was used for the Robin itself and the background was left to artistic licence. I kept this painting fairly loose in order for it to have a more natural effect and for the bird fit in well with its surroundings. Thought was given as to whether to add falling snow, and as much as this may have added more to the scene, I also knew that leaving this detail out would of taken nothing away from the overall effect.
A beautiful day, out walking and watching the ducks on the water. I found stillness, and peace of mind whilst painting this scene. The more time I spent on it, the more uplifted I felt. For me the two represent a partnership. This is where balance and harmony live in peaceful union.
I take a step into the world of realism to produce one of my most photogenic pieces of work . A picturesque setting of a farm in the Cotswold. Sheep graze in a field, whilst the Sunlight breaks through the trees casting shadows here and there adding contrast and depth. Perfect place if you are looking to go out walking in nature.
I paint from memory and set the sky on fire with warm colours of pinks, oranges and yellows. The sun sets on this tranquil beach and I stand barefoot upon the sand watching the last of the sunlight glistening over the waves. The end of a another clear summer day on the beaches of Normandy.
We all walk through the woodland of our lives. And even through the darkest of times, The light can be found anywhere if one seeks for it.
I stand on a balcony gazing upon the last light of day. It’s mid September here in Normandy, and I am at the beach resort of Hauteville. With the tide out as far as the eye can see, It is here I witness a rare and magical moment.
I paint a scene reflecting the beauty of winter and snow. This always takes me back to my childhood. And in the memory of those days, I think of Christmas. A crackling fire place and a nice hot chocolate!
Dawn breaks and a hazy sunlit woodland emerges. Dreams of colour and a mystical journey into the unknown keeps my interest… I wish to know more, and so paint and watch the story continue to unfold before my eyes.
I laboured long hours over where this painting would go. It travelled through many seasons and took on many different forms, Hence I called it Out of the Woods. I finally found a way out of what was a long journey. The marks of the under paintings tells the story of its journey and mine.
Feeling lost without a reference, I paint not knowing where this journey will take me. With my eyes closed I begin to see light and trees, I see the distance and a path leading me over a hill. Finally Heavens Cloud opened and I found my way.
I take reference from a Photograph I took one morning whilst walking through Alexandra park Hastings. I capture low cloud on a misty day which gave this scene added interest and layers of depth. The eye is immediately drawn to the large tree to the left and then to the middle where a white building is situated. Home to Alexandra Park senior bowls club.
Inspired by a photo taken in the Ashdown Forest. Whilst I was out walking with a friend.
