The Farm Track

So I'm enjoying the challenge of the new semi-abstract landscapes! And having fun in the process.

Blue Sails in Whitby. (£475)

I've been getting used to my new studio on the farm over the past couple of weeks and enjoying daily activity though the window. The new space enables me to work on some semi-abstract paintings for an upcoming exhibition in May - a new approach and I'm loving the challenge!

This is a large oil from last year of the Whitby yacht club as they get organised for a mornings outing.

Red Apple in Still Life. £99

This is the demonstration from today's workshop, we've been working on colour and using a limited palette of just blue red and yellow, plus white, quite a challenge but everyone did a very fine job.

Old tin candle saucer, (£99)

Beginning to enjoy these still life's, just as well really as it's pretty cold outside!

Enamel Pot and Clementines. (£99)

I found this little blue enamel pot in a Vide-grenier in a small village back in France, I'm sure you'll be seeing it again in the weeks to come.

Clementine and Tin Pot. (£99)

Appologies for the long time away, I have finally sold my little house in France and am in the middle of readjustment and change, but desperate to get back into the 'zone' of painting regularly. This is a little still life with objects I brought back with me.

Across the Avon at Stratford. £99

Memories of a very warm summer in Stratford upon Avon. Should I have left the bus out of the picture or not?

A stroll through Swalcliffe. £99

I liked this busy little composition of buildings as the late afternoon sun drifted across them, another I think for a much larger work later in the studio.

Oatley Hill. £99

I spent almost all day on a small commission, but managed to complete this quick little sketch the image of which in days to come I hope, I'll be able to use for a much larger painting.

Late Light, Swalcliffe, £99

I hope you had a lovely Festive time and are looking forward to a good 2015. My workshops started again today and this is the demo I made, my approach is to demo in stages, after each the painters go and work that far and then I do the next and so on until the final stage when I place all the fine details and highlights (the jewellery as some painters call it). It was a bit of a rush today I only spent about 15 minutes on this because I want everyone else to paint! But a bit of tightening up and tidying later at home and thats it.
