  1. This is an oil sketch 10x8 done quickly, and looser than my normal type of painting, this approach gives me far more satisfaction than the realistic approach, because it is (for me) much harder to achieve a reasonable looking picture. I hope I have got somewhere near how I want to paint all the time.

    The picture is not taken from a photograph it is taken from memory of the spot near where the first painting was done.

  2. Good morning to all the avid fans of this site. was getting ready to go to the class tomorrow for the first time for a long time(as a class member), and then realised that it is a bank holiday, so will have to wait until next monday.

    There will be some major changes to the layout and content of the site as I get back into things, but don't worry nothing will be lost(I hope) just put into different places and hopefully will be a bit more professional looking, and easier to find what you are looking for.

  3. Yes!!... the blog has been created, fingers crossed everything goes OK.

    Here goes again with my latest painting 20x16 oils: This is a view of the now defunct railway bridge at Willow tree fen wildlife sanctuary two miles from pode hole on the Baston road, the picture was painted from a photograph taken by me. This area is going to be a large wetland area all built by volunteers. More info on this when I have spoken to some of the team involved.
