Water reflections obsession

I have been completely obsessed with water reflections for my last sets of paintings. The constant changes of pattern, light and colour keep me absorbed. I will share here some of the images I have taken in relation to this. I hope you enjoy them also.

Many stages and battles to finish a painting...

As I was looking at some past photos I realised that I had taken some that show the progress of one of my recently sold paintings. I thought you might find it interesting to see the changes. This painting I battled with for a year and a half... but won in the end! It was inspired by water reflections.


 note here....total frustration so a big load of paint into the middle!
 ...then finally to this outcome...phew!
never give up, never give up, never give up!

Making Art does you good!

I have been running some small select art classes in my studio and am constantly amazed at how creative and clever people can be when given the right environment. Then I found this article which I have suspected to be true for a while but here it is in print.
So if any of you brave souls are interested in coming for my art classes email/contact me. My philosophy is to take you out of your comfort zone, have fun and create. I teach absolute beginners through to art students. So if you have a creative interest, enjoy looking at art, making stuff and fancy having ago...let me know.  i run the classes in my studio at home, in village Oxfordshire.
