A suitable picture for Easter and spring. Hope we see the sun… Image 5.5×7.25 inches. This is a mixed media painting which I completed while following an online course with Diane Culhane. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the painting I want to – all such fun.
It’s available as a print, greeting card or phone case.
A layered monotype where a drawing has been printed onto a prepared monotype background using waterbased printing ink. Could have been called vamp ’til ready! Image size 5.5 x 5.5 inches.
A monotype worked in several layers of gouache on Arches paper. The design is loosely based on a picture of an old turf cutting which is said to represent deities. It is from the Gog Magog Hills – an area steeped in tales of mysterious appearances, buried giants and ghosts. (The name ‘hills’ is slightly misleading as they are not very high: just definitely above the flat plain and therefore giving a commanding view.)
Artwork is 7.5×5.5 inches (19×14 cm).
A cheerful abstract pattern made of my decorated papers with additional paintwork. This painting was sold at an exhibition but it is available as a print, greetings card or phone case here.
Size of artwork 7.5×7.5 inches (19×19 cm).
A collaged pattern of pieces cut from prepared papers and stuck on a monotype background. The theme was suggested by a couple of the shapes but the pattern is abstract really and is one of an experimental set using simplified 3-tone versions of photographs as a starting point. 7×5 inches (18×13 cm).
I had this framed and Adam the framer said it was foxes so I renamed it Vulpes vulpes! But it’s still listed under the old title here.
Most of my current collages are made with decorated papers I prepare myself but this one I ‘made earlier’ has always been one of my favourites. The shape of the house is more-or-less as it should be but it was actually black and white. The collaged additions are not Caribbean!
Reproduction and iPhone case available here.
An energetic scribble over a base colour-field painting. Great fun!
6×6 inches (15×15 cm) on heavyweight watercolour paper.
A tiny mixed media picture with an unusual form of cross. The design was taken from a very old pew-end carving seen in a Cornish church. The image is 4×4 inches (10×10 cm).
Well, no – it’s not really an elephant, I agree! But at a quick glance it might be! A mixed media piece including some collaged prepared papers on heavyweight watercolour paper. Size 6.5 inches square (16.5 cm square).
A tiny picture only 4×4 inches but I found it pleasing when the abstract pieces seemed to make a nice whole. Prepared papers collaged onto heavyweight watercolour paper.
