At last this one is finished. It was inspired by watching the legendary Ralph McTell in performance at the Cropredy Music Festival in August 2016.

Painted with Artisan water soluble oil paints on a box canvas, it measures 50 cms square.

It may be a touch conceited, but I am very pleased with the outcome.

Shoreham footbridge

It was our second trip out painting this year, yesterday. This is the "new" footbridge at Shoreham viewed from Shoreham beach. After I had almost finished it, the tide came in and changed the view completely. May need to go back and paint it again.

This one was painted with Royal Langnickel soft pastels on 11.75" by 8.25" Winsor and Newton pastel paper.

My Left Hand

This was the last exercise at Art Club before the summer break. "Paint your left hand three times" it said, so I did. Approx 16" by 12" and painted with Atelier Interactive acrylics on Winsor and Newton Galeria textured acrylic paper.

This was supposed to have been a monochrome study, but I just couldn't help myself. A little burnt sienna and alizaran crimson may have jumped in. It measures approx 60 cm by 30 cm  and was painted with Artisan water soluble oil paints on stretched canvas. One for the summer exhibition I think.

This one was finished off at Art Club last evening. It was painted in response to the theme of boats and sea.

Probably the best painting I have managed with the Artisan water soluble oil paints so far. It measures approx 16" by 12" and is on Winsor and Newton canvas board.

Mother of dragons

Finished at last. Acknowledging the influence of Marcus Finch, for the colour palette and Game of Thrones for the inspiration. It measures 50 cms square and was painted with Atelier Interactive Acrylics on a stretched canvas........ Winter is coming.
