Walking Home

An imagined subject drawn in charcoal. The cut off elements add to the overall feeling of movement. There is a theme of echoes and a struggle to balance the elements in the picture. As often happens, a painting was done based on the drawing but it didn’t have the same satisfaction for me. Image size 15×11 inches.

Riberaccy

A charcoal drawing bringing together different scenes (with some liberty): a nice church with a bell ringing the Angelus but no services (and showing a fantastic art exhibition), a bent old lady feeding her chickens, neat crops and rolling fields. Image size 19×15 inches.

Waiting at St Sulpice

Charcoal drawing developed from a mini sketch done on site. There is our ‘leader’ Gordon a bit peeved everyone is late. There was no way to see the reportedly lovely garden and chateau behind the wall but the village had lots of delights and far-reaching views. Image size 17.5×12.5 inches.

Spring Flood

A painting I’m fond of and have on the screen of one of my ancient laptops. Various children have asked if I painted it and how I did it. Well, you just get some very absorbent paper, drop colours on it, wait for it to dry, drop more colour and repeat! Then, if you haven’t made a hole or got it a horrible colour, you think of a name. Image size 7.5 inches square approximately.

Samarkand

This abstract collage was made with papers decorated with monotype. It would be impossible to reproduce any of the patterned papers exactly. The lightweight papers take the colour in unpredictable ways. The scraps have been stuck to heavy watercolour paper with acid-free adhesive. The title reminds me of a book my father owned called The Golden Road to Samarkand by James Elroy Flecker – the name always fascinated me as a child. Image size approximately 10×9 inches.

This is one of the paintings in my print on demand shop.
