Isle of Coll

Thrilled to have sold this painting. Framing it well has really made it special. Thanks to Sheila for letting me keep it for a few more weeks so I can display it at the Perthshire Open Studios. It’s in the house and I am going to have to do another one! It’s not the best [...]

Abstract

2021-08-05T10:59:48+00:00

Working with a new style of large abstract. Starting with a layer of gold metallic paint and then rubbing in acrylic colours, building up the texture. This is half way to what I want but I do like the randomness of the result and I am excited to see where it will go next. It [...]

Clear out begun

2021-08-05T10:53:47+00:00

I have started a big clear out of the studio/shed in preparation for the Perthshire Open Studios in September. A while to go but lots to do: organising, painting, framing, ... I have a list (of course) of work I want to finish before then but it keeps growing with new ideas. PRIORITISE. Not getting [...]

Gorse in full bloom

2021-08-05T11:00:36+00:00

My newest picture 'Gorse in Full Bloom' is finished. Originally, it was going to be a view based on a more misty mountain landscape.  Then the colours of the gorse bushes around here were so dramatic this year I had to grab the yellow pastels as soon as I got to the studio/shed. Is too [...]

Perthshire Open Studios

2021-08-05T10:54:01+00:00

Really excited to have signed up for the Perthshire Open Studios from 4th-12th September, 2021. It’s giving me great motivation to get working on new pictures. Loads of ideas just not enough time! Hopefully, the sun will shine as it’s a VERY small ‘studio’ but lots of good outdoor space. Note it in your diary [...]

Elephants

2021-07-09T09:04:55+00:00

Very pleased with the series of 3 elephant Mother and Child paintings I have done recently. I think they make a nice set although the style of each is slightly different. I have also just completed this green jungle Elephant abstract piece. It’s smaller than usual and I am probably going to make it a [...]

The artists birthday

2021-05-03T13:42:54+00:00

The best birthday presents are those which you know you will use for a long time (apart from gin obviously). This year, I got this big artists portfolio case to keep things clean and safe – really useful when you are working in a confined space. I remember having one of these in 1980 and [...]

2021-05-03T13:44:11+00:00

The plan (which can change obviously) is to update most weeks. Posts will be a mix of finished work, things I am working on and any other images that have inspired me. Please comment on what you see, I need feedback if I am going to make a million! So, to start it all off [...]

Really excited to have signed up for the Perthshire Open Studios.

It’s giving me great motivation to get working on new pictures. Loads of ideas just not enough time!

Hopefully, the sun will shine as it’s a VERY small ‘studio’ but lots of good outdoor space.
