I have really enjoyed creating this group of paintings. I’m trying not to think too hard and allow my work to develop in a variety of directions, there is a loose theme that has emerged, women & girls, sisters & friends – at work, rest and play. I’m still working with gouache, these works are all A4.
I have also started working on some portraits that will be available in my shop from today. I will post updates on new work and shop updates here.
‘the summer we ran away’ This painting and others are now available to buy in my shop
The teddy bears’ picnic
She had fallen in love with his yellow eyes.
Two more small paintings in gouache on paper. Trying to capture late summer colours, I always feel a little sad as summer draws to an end but it holds the promise of Autumn, my favourite season.
I have been working with gouache on paper for a couple of weeks now, it’s not a paint I have used much in the past. The idea is to just keep painting, anything and everything that appeals to me from day to day, moment to moment. I’m not trying to achieve anything in particular, I’m exploring, trying different techniques, making up for lost time I suppose. If it was possible to always paint I would.
I walked from Montpelier to Kingsdown, nothing spectacular, ordinary streets on a sunny day. My life is upside down and back to front at the moment, this short journey takes me to my parents house and the streets I played on as a child, I was interested in documenting this possibly to do some paintings.
Back to basics with some still life observational painting. Having lots of problems with WordPress, can barely type a sentence and have double images so will quickly post before the entire thing crashes.
