On the easel…

The following works are currently on the easel and will be available to purchase soon (please contact me to express interest).


Iron River

I’m currently working on a large 1m square canvas based on studies of a moorland river. I love the warm palette of burnt sienna and raw umber, which undertones of rose pink, caused by the minerals in the water and rock, and the cool highlights of light on the flowing water.

Within

This is a figurative work about vulnerability and finding comfort within yourself. It’s based on studies from life, and is in charcoal and acrylic on heavy paper. It will be about A2 when framed.

It follows on from other life painting in this style that I did for an exhibition at Pyramid Gallery (now  sold).
