'SISTERS' 6"x6" oil/acrylic on canvas


Yes, surrounded by water, a whole ocean, but unable to fill my brush cleaning pot!
Here I am painting plein air on the beach a few minutes walk from my house.
I set up my easel and then over the time I was painting had to move back and back as the billows raged against me. Great fun. I will maybe finish this one indoors.

Listen to Wisdom

Mt first time back into still life after a long time. For Christmas I was able to get Carol Marines book 'Daily Painting' and have enjoyed taking in some of her suggestions. As a landscape painter I have a tendency to add white to make things recede which is OK for massive distances or weather conditions. But still life has very little distance evolved therefore the colours can remain much more focused and saturated in strength.
The old cup is addressing the young fruits from a point of superiority.

We live in a great place - the sun comes up at the front, and sets at the back of the house. It is like a continual adventure.

ABERYSTWYTH 8"x6" oil on board

This is a classic view of Aberystwyth promenade.
It was a great struggle to create this little painting. There is no telling when a painting will just come together or when it will be a struggle.

NEW QUAY - Ceredigion

First small painting for a long time.
This was a good distraction as I battle with a nasty cold.

HURRICANE GONZALO arrives in West Wales

 Hurricane Gonzalo had worked hard and had now arrived at the bottom of our garden in Llanon - West Wales. There was still plenty of power left.
