Here's the new painting... I have no idea why it has taken so long to get this uploaded!
I really like the colours and the composition... It's a bit dark in places and I'm wondering if my paints are good quality enough to get the effect I want. Even so I'm pretty happy with it.


Here's the collage I did for the new painting. A trick I picked up when I was teaching on the Young @ Art programme (.. .a long time ago!)

...so there's a 20 year art college reunion coming up and I saw these peeking out of an old box of treasures. Thought I'd share! 


Collage circa 1992

I think it was from a chocolate project! I'm actually feeling quite nostalgic about it! Not sure if I'll make it to the reunion, but we did have some fun.

Went for an autumnal walk in the woods yesterday. Isn't nature great?! Lots of inspiration for colours and compositions.

A couple of photos today. New painting started yesterday...watch this space. Quite excited!


Found some inspiration from this artist Sally King Benedict. Her work is great, love her use of colour. And this artist too...Emma Coulter looking forward to her blog.

Here are some out and about sketches from 2000 in New York done whilst visiting my fabulous friend Michelle. We had some amazing times!

A couple more watercolours. I think these will be the last for a while... we had fun but now it's time for something different... it's not you it's me.

We went down to the port to draw outside, here
I made a little book last weekend, there are a few pages left so will have to get back down to the same location to finish off. I really got into drawing again. I could have stayed all day!
