  1. Abundant emptiness

    Do you like the title? Well some pretentious morons might like it!! Or i could have called it "Crowded Isolation" both titles totally meaninless, but if that's what it takes to create meaningful art then that is the way it's got to be, forget the content and just give it an enigmatic/meaningless title and all of a sudden it becomes a work of art.

  2. Here are some  watercolours I have painted in the last few days..The mounts used have been cut by me on my Logan mount cutter using Daler Rowney Studland cream core Mountboard.The watercolours used were Schmincke pan and tube and also White Nights pans.Willow Tree Fen

    A quick sketch of Willow tree Fen from memory. This is painted on to Saunders Waterford 140lbs rough. The image is 11.5" x 8.5" in a 14"x10" frame. Painted in about 7 minutes

    somewhere nice

    "Somewhere Nice". Painted from imagination. This is painted on to Saunders Waterford 140lbs rough. The image is 12.5" x9.5", the frame is 15"x12".

    peaceful lake

    "Peaceful Lake".  Once again from the imagination. This one is painted on to Bockingford 250lbs NOT.  Image is 12.5" x 9.5" frame is 15" x 12". It looks like I have posted this pic twice "Ah Well" I do like this one so I will leave it.

    Just a little pic to show off white nights full pan paints, they may not be the very best, but they are a very good quality for a third to a quarter of the price of other artists quality paints. Have just discovered Schmincke whole pans and they are absolutely brilliant.

    Just seen a totally rubbish piece of artwork with paint slopped onto a surface of some sort, and the artist said amongst other things,"juxtaposition,paradoxical, interactive laterally, unconscious sublimal reaction", and so on and so on, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. the synopsis with the picture should have been I can't paint so i'll rabbit on with total bullshit and I will call it "What a load of fucking crap" by ####### And all you pretentious twats out there who think it is good go and get rogered by a ragged rivet......

    I have decided that I am going to do watercolours mainly, I am not getting any satisfaction from digital art(however good I think it is).

    This is a watercolour from imagination, inspired by Steven Cronin, image size is 10"x7" using mainly White Night watercolour large pans.

    This is a smaller painting 7"x5" I've even given this one a title "Indigo Sky"

    I will be uploading the same pictures again but each one will have a proper mount inserted.(as opposed to roughly cut out pieces of watercolour paper)

    This is a digital painting taken from a photograph taken at the Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary. The Donkey sanctuary is run by a private couple and their family and friends, financed by public donations if you want to donate or see what they do then click HERE 

    Some of the stories are horrendous, like keeping a donkey going, giving rides on the beach, when it is too old and it's back is bent way beyond it's proper position. whilst this is not necessarily deliberate cruelty it is certainly cruel when that loyal animal has given way beyond the call of duty... worse are stories of traveller's ill treating animals for entertainment, doing a bit of research I have come to the conclusion that people who are cruel to animals for fun and entertainment (ie foxhunting, dogfighting etc etc) are usually of a lower intelligence (they might be higher in the hierachy ie wealthier, but certainly less enriched in the brain department) than normal people who find these activities abhorrent, cowardly scumbags all!!
