Sunday Yarn

Oil on canvas, 30×40″ I look at this painting with great fondness. I like that it has captured a moment’s rest and a joke about the weather or something. It was a complicated piece and I was correcting my drawing throughout it.

Revealing The Potatoes

Oil on canvas 30×40″ A lot of work went into this piece, in future I may decide not to paint every brick and flint! as after the third day of doing so it was getting it a bit tedious! But I like the overall effect of the glancing winter light.

Still in the Shadow

Oil on board, 8×8″ This was a lovely frosty morning and a typical on location exercise. Dad wasn’t with me for most of it, as he stood out in the sunshine taking photo’s while I froze to death in the frosty shadows!!

No Riddling Today

Oil on board, 6.5×10″ I painted this during the week leading up to Christmas. It was a beautiful morning and a perfect subject, I like the abstract shapes on the right.

Caught My Eye

Oil on board, 7×10″ The attraction to this view was the bright yellow tarpaulin. Though abstract in shape and purpose, the painting wouldn’t work without it.

Gleaners in the Rickyard

Oil on board, 7×10″ I painted this on a perfect summer’s morning. I think the most rewarding paintings are often the simple understated ones. I can’t wait for this summer, to be able to paint similar scenes.

Golden Hour

Oil on board, 7×10″ I painted this just after Christmas with Jethro Tull’s song in my head ‘Ring Out Those Solstice Bells’! So fond memories are attached to this painting!

Shut That Door!

Oil on board, 7×10″ It was a challenge to work with the changing light to capture the rich warm tones of the barn roof, I wanted to get blocks of colour down to finish off in the studio.
