Hanging on another wall…

Yellow Iris, acrylics

On this dismally grey August day I am missing the brightness of this painting. It was sold at the HADCAF art exhibition and now hangs on someone else’s wall. Better unpack the acrylic inks and get cracking!

Beneath our feet

Portland Bill 3
Portland Bill 3, acrylic inks, coloured pencils, watercolour

A commissioned painting for someone who also has a love of rocks and pebbles. It was inspired by a visit to Portland Bill some time ago and this is one of a series on the same theme. The first was purely a study, a drawing exercise using graphite and coloured pencil. This version is more detailed yet also more spontaneous in its treatment, using both wet and dry media (plus a little bit of chemistry) to get where I wanted it to be.

The lie of the land

Lancashire Patchwork I, acrylic ink and pastels, 2017 (SOLD)

Such a good feeling – when something in a scene makes you want to paint, and then someone else gets it enough to want to buy it.

This was the first iteration of a view in Lancashire that I have since painted in acrylics –  Lancashire Patchwork II. That version is currently on show at Sandham Memorial Chapel with Open Studios. This one has gone to a new home.
