MEN AT WORK

#343 - 5” x 7” ( 12.7cm x 17.8cm) - Oil - Currently there are a lot of footpath works being done at our local shopping strip. I just had to take advantage of painting their ‘Hi-Vis’ clothing that was glowing magnificently in the winter’s sun.

LES TOURISTES, MONTPELLIER, FRANCE

 Click here for purchasing details :  #336 - 6” x 6” - Oil - I painted this scene from a photo taken a few years ago during a day visit to Montpellier. I zoomed in and cropped this small composition from within the larger photo. I loved the light created by the ‘contre jour’ aspect. The aim was to keep the painting impressionistic and ephemeral.

BIG BINS

  #328 - 8” x 10” - Oil - This was one of those occasions when the subject chose me. Who knew that bins could be beautiful? They were looking very smart indeed in the full sun. The added bonus was the complementary coloured graffiti.

TOAD

#324 - 6" x 6" - Oil - Commission -  Normally when an artist chooses a subject to paint it's because something about the subject caught their eye and moved them in a particular way. However when it comes to a commission the artist subsequently paints to move someone else. For the artist this can certainly be an added pressure. Although when the client is happy, that pressure is most definitely worthwhile!

RACE

 
 
 #323 - 8" x 10" - Oil -  Had some fun with the palette knife on this one. I always like the challenge of trying to capture/suggest movement. Horse racing is definitely an ideal subject. Click here for purchasing details.

ROCK CLIMBING

#322 - 6" x 6" - Oil - Not being a fan of heights you will never see me doing this sport/activity. I just happened to like the composition of verticals, angles and the variations of negative shapes. ( the space around the subject ) A composition is usually more interesting if the negative shapes are not equal. Click here for purchasing details
