"Watched" A Work in Progress...

A new painting. This one, in oils, is to be called, "Watched" and is a work in progress.

New Paintings

Some new paintings. Both watercolour, the perfect medium, I find, for this kind of image. I like working with glazes, swathes of transparent colour as well as utilising light and dark in dramatic ways. For me it's about drama, mood, atmosphere and story telling.
In future blogs I'm going to discuss what we do here at Les Jardins des Arts. I spend a lot of my time teaching watercolour, oil and acrylic painting as well as producing my own work. If you'd like any advice on your own work or ask questions about how I have produced a certain thing, please feel free to contact me.

"Eve", watercolour SOLD

The First Post

Welcome, thanks for dropping by. I will be adding more photos and information over the next week. Please pop back if you'd like to see more of my work and get some idea of what I do here in rural France. I have just installed the gallery to the right but unfortunately not had time to link the thumbs to larger images. Watch this space. Hope you like what you see!
