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.

Work(s) In Progress…

I have a few paintings on the go, dotted around the room, I try and keep them moving along in between commissioned bits and pieces. Here’s how these are shaping up so far…

And here’s a sketch I made earlier, I like these 1 hour doodles as I’m able to try out new things without feeling like I have to create a masterpiece…

This one was a very quick, end of the day doodle, very much enjoyed the loose quality of this one…
