CAC Autumn Exhibition 2017

Autumn 2017

What a great exhibition, I had three paintings for sale, Fade to Grey, Napoleon, and Macavity and I’m delighted to say they all sold.  

Early in 2017, I had begun experimenting on painting with a plain black background, I really liked how the subjects jumped from the canvas. I painted these three subjects, all the same size around the same time and that’s when my style started to immerge. 

I continue to paint a range of animals and birds based on simply what takes my fancy at the time.

WIP – Fade to Grey

The first in a series of Work in Progress (WIP) blogs.

It’s really beneficial for me to take progress shots while painting a picture, it gives me the opportunity to see where I can make adjustments, correct mistakes, add or take away things I’m not overly fussed about

When the painting is complete I’m left with a series of photographs that I can put together in on of my WIP posts on Facebook, people love to see how a painting comes together, there are so many ugly stages that sometimes even I am surprised how well it eventually turns out.
