En-route to the Canal du Midi
I passed this barn en-route to the Canal du Midi in the Aude region of France. It was a scorching hot day but I had the presence of mind to take a photograph of the view with the intention of painting it. Framed in a wide 7cm cushion moulding, giving an overall size of 31x25cm.
Fruit on a Green Cloth
Still life showing various fruits in a pottery bowl on a green cloth. Painted at my art class. I found the structure of the bowl quite difficult to render in my picture but ended up happy with the result. The work is in varnished oil on an unframed canvas.
Foxglove in my garden
During the summer of 2006, I was sitting in my garden and sketched this picture in watercolour pencil from a foxglove growing in a flowerbed. I left the picture for some time before deciding to paint it in oils. I think it's worked out ok. The work is on a deep edge box canvas and is varnished. No frame is required and the picture comes with a simple fixing, allowing normal picture hooks to be used. It currently hangs in my living room, as it complements the furnishings.
This is a portrait of my wife from a photo taken whilst on holiday in the South of France. We were sitting on our balcony in the evening sun and had had a very good day out. This picture is not for sale.
My first abstract! This picture is inspired by the Protea plant and its unusual flowers. I found painting this picture a liberating experience and plan to expand my work in this area.
This painting works for me because of the two views; inside and outside. There is a sense of looking out to a warm scene from a cool room. The sun streams in through the windows, lighting the interior. The work is varnished oil on a deep edge box canvas.
