    my sea view

    I'm so lucky to live by the sea in Sussex UK. This is the view greeting me each day, I never tire of it, in all weather. I have a gentle stroll of about ten minutes to reach the beach, an endless source of inspiration.

    watch the video close-ups of my oil painting Early Summer Concerto

    I explore the effect of music and mark making. It was so exciting, took about a year to complete this large oil painting. It's been a joy to work on.

    INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY 8th March

    INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY 8th March

    It's INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY on 8th March Lets celebrate female artists! We haven't always had the freedom to paint. I've been inspired by many, and would like to give a mention to Hilma af Klint (b1862) she was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were among the first abstract art. A considerable body of her abstract work predates the first purely abstract compositions by Kandinsky. Thank you to all those female artists in History, who have helped us have the freedom of expression most of us enjoy today.

    PREPARING A LARGE CANVAS

    PREPARING A LARGE CANVAS

    Four stages of preparation, ready to start work on a very large canvas. 1. I stretch the heavy grade cotton canvas over a large old temporary stretcher. 2. The canvas is pulled fairly tight, but allowing some slack. 3. The canvas is prepared with two coats of Acrylic size, then three of Primer Gesso, this protects, seals and pulls the last bit of slack out of the canvas. 4. The gesso is dry, and I can make the first few marks, and so it begins. On completion, the canvas will be removed from the stretchers and rolled for shipping. Having the canvas re-stretched at your framers is relatively inexpensive and much cheaper that shipping on the stretcher. I then re-use the stretcher bars for the next large piece of work. Why go to all this trouble? Keep shipping cost low or free Shipping extra large paintings, rolled in a tube, offers much greater protection in transit Heavy, professional quality canvas is used I'm a perfectionist!
