Out of the Shadows, 46 x 35.5cm (18 x 14″), mixed media on board
I used inks, gouache, watercolour and gesso on this painting, letting the colours run and just seeing what will happen. It will be part of my exhibition at
Smithy Gallery from the 4th Feb.
Winter Lochan, mixed media on board
I’m busy working on a series of paintings, ready for exhibition at
Smithy Gallery. This is one of the finished ones.
Pink Waves, £40, 18 x 13cm (7 x 5″), watercolour and gouache on watercolour paper
I have added a new wee one to my shops. It is available through
Etsy, Artfinder, ArtGallery and nuMonday.
Through Purple Meadows, 41 x 36cm (16 x 14″), mixed media on watercolour paper
I have been experimenting again and ended up using gesso, indian ink, watercolour, gouache and pastel on this painting. It originally started out as wisteria. I don’t think there is a single remnant of that painting left. I’m much happier with this version.
Through Purple Meadows is for sale through all my shops
Etsy, Artfinder, ArtGallery and now nuMonday.
Sometimes I love a scene so much, I have to paint it more than once. Here is my latest offering, Winter Field. Below it is an earlier version; and below that is the original photograph.
Winter Fields with is available for sale on all my shops –
Etsy, Artfinder, artgallery, nuMonday, Art2Arts and Saatchi.
This painting is from the same source photo and is currently in
And here is the original photograph that was used with permission from
Lawrence Cornell Photography.
Blue Woods, 18 x 13cm (7 x 5″), gouache on watercolour paper
I’m into blue at the moment. Ultramarine blue, phthalo blue and lots of blues in between. So I couldn’t resist painting a woodland scene in Prussian blue, my favourite of them all.
This wee painting is now available on
Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.
I have been working on a series of paintings for exhibiting in the
Smithy Gallery Christmas Exhibition which has its Private View on the 19th November.
This one is framed and ready to go.
Field Grasses, 23 x 18cm, mixed media on watercolour paper
The source image was supplied by
Lawrence James Cornell.
Sometimes I just go out for walks and wander about with my camera specifically looking for source material. I do like working out doors, but I can’t use mixed media while out there as the weather can be too unpredictable; so source photos are important to me.
Yesterday, I took quite a few photos, but one of the images works so well as a photograph that I don’t know how to begin to paint it.
I know the composition is a bit meh, but I love the colours, and the way the light hits all the leaves. It will take me a while to paint it I think, but I’ll let you know how I get on.
Old Man of Storr, Skye, gouache on watercolour, 13 x 18cm (5 x 7″)
Old Man of Storr, Skye is for sale on
