Two Apostles

This is the first painting based on our travels at the end of last year. The Great Ocean Road was one of the early highlights. This painting measures 16" by 12" and was painted with Atelier Interactive acrylics on Winsor and Newton Galleria Acrylic Paper. Crucially a limited palette of Cobalt Blue, Crimson, Arylamide Yellow Light and Titanium White was used.

Barn Surgery Ferring


The residents of Ferring will have some new art to look at this month while waiting in the Surgery.

Very pleased that "Arundel Wetlands" is included.

Light from Window

Good to be back to painting again. The brief for this one at Arun Art Society was to paint an interior with light streaming in through a window. It measures 12" by 15" and was painted with Conte hard and soft pastels on Sennelier pastel card. The rather moody atmosphere is quite fun.

Abstracted hairy cow

The task at the Arun society today was to take the picture painted last week and produce a semi-abstract picture from it. Quite a fun exercise and it is interesting to look at the two paintings side by side.

This one measures approximately 16" by 12", painted in water mixable oils on oil paper, both from Winsor and Newton.


This was finally finished off  at the Club evening on Tuesday.

It measures 12" by 16" approximately and was painted in Winsor and Newton water mixable oils on Winsor and Newton oil paper.

Pretty pleased with the way this turned out.

Hairy cow

Today at my new art club, the theme was dogs, cats, horses and cows painted with one big brush and one small one. This measures approx 12" by 8" and was painted with Winsor and Newton water-mixable oils on Daler and Rowney Georgian Oil Painting Paper.
Just might be another keeper I think.

A winner at last

After many years of trying, finally  a winner.

It means a great deal, as only my fellow artists are eligible to vote. Thanks to all that did.
