Near Twilight

I do love a bit of melancholy!! Early evening is a favourite time of day, and during this autumn it has been very lovely in the late afternoons.

Camber sands

We are enjoying the most beautiful autumn, day after day of warmish sunshine, not really windy and so the leaves are bright and colourful. Here is a painting of the walkway down to one of my local beaches, Camber Sands.

Working on...

I started this painting a short while ago....see here. I am working on it in conjunction with my new piece. Having one one painting out to look at whilst working on another is something I do quite regularly.

Love this artist

I have been really enjoying looking at the artwork of Antony White on-line. He spans the world between abstraction and landscape in a way I find immensely appealing. The thick viscous paint and often patchwork piecing together of forms reminds me of Lars Dan too....

Work in progress

I have a 90x90cm stretcher, linien on canvas, and several drawings scattered around. I have just made a few marks on my brand new painting. I love this stage in a painting, there is so much freedom.

Last drawing, now to work

At 57x75cm, oil pastel, compressed charcoal (for a really black black line) and acrylic paint (not much, just some tints really) on watercolour paper, this is my largest drawing.
as well as working on all the drawings I have made in the last day or so I will use them in my larger paintings. the colours, skies and perspectives are all inspiring.

Rowley Gallery

You can see two of my paintings in the Rowley Gallery, Notting Hill Gate, London take a look here and here!

Apple country

I live in apple country, Kent is a big producer of apples and pears. We are surrounded by wonderful orchards. We have two apple trees in our garden...hardly an orchard, but they certainly produce a lot of apples. The crop is just coming to a close now.

A few more drawings in the rain

A days drawing

Up on a local hill looking over the farmland and fields on a blowy November day....All these drawings are compressed charcoal, oil pastel and acrylic paint on watercolour or cartridge paper.
