Work In Progress

This is just a detail section of a painting currently in progress where I’ve incorporated actual pieces of the natural surroundings I draw from onto the surface. Colours are that bit brighter in this piece and from a personal level, that is very significant.

Last Of The Blue Moon

This is a recent painting where I brought some bits I’ve gathered from the forest floors while out walking. I wanted to bring the outside surroundings back to my studio for some recent paintings that I am working on. The gathering of such things like pine needles, bits of twigs, broken up pine cones and dried dead leaves were placed on the surface of the canvas before I painted over it. I used the bits I’ve gathered as a way of sketching out the composition on the canvas which changed the structure in places as the painting progressed.

Friction Of Thought 

Hiking through Djouce woods today and ended up here. Not a sole to be seen as on a normal day this place has lots of people around. It was a great experience to get the space to myself and really take it in..
