New Piece


This is a new piece - quite large 40"x60", a figure in an abstracted setting. I took the photo in my studio and the top of the painting was not properly lit - those squares are really much paler.

Current paintings




I have worked more on layering some colour on this piece. It isn't so obvious in the image.

Further development

Worked further on this piece - it needs to dry a few days, then will get some ochre glazing.

Glazed layers

Today I worked on some glazed layers to mute the colours of the two pieces that are almost finished. Here is how they look now. The image with the pole is a bit too dark on top on the computer screen, in real life it isn't as dark.

Tiled floor

I'm now trying to make the decision whether I should leave this piece sepia toned or introduce flesh tones, and full colour.

Progress on Self Portrait

I have been working further on the Self Portrait. Hopefully the more difficult parts of the body are now done. Surprisingly I found the elbow more of a challange to do than the hand.

Self portrait - beginnings

This is a new 36"x36" Self Portrait. I plan to keep it monochromatic so am taking a lot of care with this initial stage.
