Other gardens to inspire

I found this video which inspired me....and hope it does you also. I especially like the different types of foliage and greens. The fact that it is a bit of a wild garden also really appeals to me. More painting inspiration!I hope you enjoy it also.

Matisse studio at R.A.

This little video gives a nice introduction to the exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, on until 12 November 2017. Interesting to see the link between his objects and paintings.

Light and shadow... paintings inspiration!

At present I am really fascinated by shadows and patterns that I find in my surroundings.
I try to go for regular walks and so gather ideas and inspiration from all around me. I shall enclose some examples. Often it is not the large impressive things that inspire me but small moments, glimses that stay with me.

Derek Balmer interviewed

I found this video really enjoyable and interesting to see how he describes his method of working. His paintings are bright and full of colour.

Happy holidays

Here's hoping that the weather is kind to you.
This painting 'Pulling my socks off, running in'..  is one of my memories of being by the sea and being in such a rush to get into the water. I hope you enjoy my painting and that this time of year brings back good memories for you.
