Fine times.

Between Showers   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper   11 x 7 inches  £ 105   $ 130

Nature's tapestry on the rolling hills. 
 Sun brings out the colours after the rain.   

Studio Musings...

I completely missed writing my blog yesterday as you might have noticed.
I was engrossed in household jobs and forgot.

To make up for that I will post two in one today.

Autumn Glow   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper  8 x 12 inches  £ 106  $ 130

Remembering autumn and a view up a green lane.

The track on the left leads my eye towards the warm horizon.
Light in the sky is echoed on the ground.

I have been making a group of studies on this watercolour paper.
The gessoed surface is really good for rough brush strokes giving the
impression of twiggy tree tops and clumps of grass
.  Dimples in the paper catch and hold the oils. 

Quickly painted I try not to tighten up and fiddle.  
It is very tempting to add just a few more marks and then regret it.

(Both paintings are available on
or an email to me for UK collectors).
