Autumn Shades

I haven't taken that many photos this Autumn, the weather has been pretty dreadful, rain, rain and more rain it's been a bit of a grey year.

Night Paintings Series

A small series of watercolours inspired by my night paintings sketchbook. I am not entirely happy with them, I probably need to go back to doing some in the sketchbook to get the feel of painting in a more automatic and free thinking way.

They are still quite small, each painting measures 16x16cm and the colour representation is not great either it's been so dull here, it's really difficult to photograph anything.
Also, trying to tweak the blog a little so you might see it changing over the next few days, probably ending up with me putting back to how it was originally!!

A few things that have been happening recently, excitingly I have a few paintings in a small exhibition at the Waterside Arts Centre in Sale. The exhibition is in the gallery bar and is on until early December, all work is for sale. I have also finished three large paintings, started a series of watercolours based on my night paintings sketchbook and another series inspired by the seasons, and at last I have been on a printing course at Hot Bed Press in Manchester called Painterly Screenprinting, photos to follow in subsequent posts, but for know here is a little sneak peak.

Black and White

I went for a short walk today with the intention of photographing some Autumn colour, but came back with these black and white images instead.
