  1. This is my friend Trevor's painting of his grandson Benoit, I really don't know of many (if any)artists with the skills in watercolour that Trevor has, this is obviously not finished, cant wait to see the finished article, I would also like to point out that Trev' has severe arthritis in his hands so this is an even more  laudable effort.

  2. Got to tell you about Richard Robinson, I have followed him for a number of years now and have seen his work get better and better, and he is not afraid to show you how he paint's, his video tutorials are the best around he leaves nothing out. See his site here A really nice person and becoming a great painter, who am I to say that? well although my painting skills leave a lot to be desired my knowledge of art in general is good and my visual appreciation is second to none(my opinion)

  3. "Kinife painting? "you say! Yep it sure is, Harley Crossley is the artists name, every speck of paint was put on this canvas with a knife.....'kin incredible I say.

    I have long been an admirer of knife painting and have known of Harley Crossley for about 8yrs now, unfortunately this uniquely talented man Has left us R.I.P. Harley.

     

     

    Yet another amazing knife painting, this time by Paul Rupert a Canadian artist, also sadly passed away. R.I.P.Paul.

    I am not sure I really want to take up knife painting now....

    But I am going to keep trying to improve not that I would expect to reach the skill level of the aforementioned artists.

     

     

     12x10 oils

    This is my latest attempt at a knife painting, I personally think it is a step in the right direction, certainly better than my previous attempts, got to be honest and say that this is maybe 80% knife the rest is brush and a little finger painting.

    This is not finished yet I have at least 3 lamp posts to put in. (Thank god for that said the dog looking at the pic)haha.

     

  4. Just trying something different, I really want to paint very loose but it is more dificult than painting realistically, so in the meantime I am going to go with realism, well I think so anyway!!

    This is the first stage of a nice composition I saw on the internet, it won't be an exact copy 'cause that wouldn't be fair on the original artist (Jerry Yarnell)

  5.  We had planned to go to the Clock chippy on Sat evening with our friend from Wisbech but due to unforeseen cicumstances they were closed. Oh well we'll take a walk into town and try the other recommended fish and chip restaurant  called Salty's, and we are pleased we did as it was as good as the Clock, to be fair if I was to choose a winner I couldn't because they are both very good. will put in a picture of Salty's when I take one.  

    AND HERE IT IS!
