Small Paintings…

This is how I make so much more progress in such a short space of time. These small paintings help to try out new things in a sort of ‘no pressure’ situation. Rather than working on huge masterpieces, I find it helps to have a few smaller works (these are approx. 7 x 9″ each) and try out new mediums, new subject matter and new techniques, the results are often surprising and really help your work in the long run.

A Sleeping Beauty…

I have three paintings, in various stages of completion, of this lovely lady on the go right now, it’s a joy to work on some figurative stuff…

Wildflowers- Some Progress…

I started work on this one months ago, have recently been tinkering with it, very happy to have the oils out on it now as I went as far as I could with acrylics, which is great for the underlayers, but the oils somehow make the painting come alive, as well as being beautiful to work with- Here’s how it’s looking so far…

Lots Of Little Stones…

REALLY enjoyed working on this, I found a zen sort of space in myself and took full advantage, I recommend trying these sorts of subjects, they’re not as tricky as they look but they do take a little applying of oneself…
