Sketching in Ipswich

Went out today with the sketchbook.  Its been a while since I have really drawn out in public, was really good fun once I got going!  These are all drawn with a Fountain Pen

Have decided to return to the sketchbook for a while!......with an emphasis on regular drawing! - These were drawn yesterday evening at Christchurch park.

Oil on Board
10 x  8"

For Sale £75

A friend lent me this Fox Skull a while back and I have finally got round to making a painting of it.  Although it looks quite simple in terms of colour I was really interested in trying to capture the subtle temprature changes from warm to cool.

Apple and Lime

Oil On Board
For Sale - £75

Day 2! - I have always been amazed by some daily painters who managed to keep posting year after year.  I think two days in a row is good going for the moment! - Anyway, pleased with this one.  I really enjoy working with the light and shadows to create a dramatic effect.

Bowl Of Limes

Oil on Board
10 x 8"

I have decided to start another series of still life paintings.  I have been really busy with teaching over the last year or so and although I have had bursts of productivity I want to see if I can start being a bit more consistent. So I am going to try out the Daily Painting formula and see how it goes. This will mean putting a bit more time into the blog and website as well.

This is the first of the new series.  Testing out my new shadow box and lighting set up.  Unfortunately no studio at the moment so will have to make do with a corner of my room!
