    Finally, after weeks of thinking and painting, this pic shows the development of the idea. Eve followed in Adam’s footsteps.

    Finally finished. My two life size figures: Adam & Eve

    Part of the development of my painting usually involves several changes to the composition before I reach the final outcome.

    Life Size Adam and Eve

    Life Size Adam and Eve

    About a year ago, I decided to paint a life-size pair of nudes. They are both painted on two panels measuring 1 metre square. This is how I started painting Adam. I’m standing on a ladder.

    MY PIGEONNIER MURAL

    MY PIGEONNIER MURAL

    Right in the centre of our village is a small open space next door to our garden. I thought it would be nice to paint a pigeonnier on the wall that forms one side of our home. (Pigeonniers are wonderful old pigeon breeding buildings that abound in our area.) Permission to do something like this would normally take many years - and probably more than I've got left. So I decided to take the plunge and do it without one. Well, luckily no one ever said anything and it's often the backdrop to anyone taking a selfie.

    Not exactly me at work - rather resting after doing...well, not very much..

    PORTRAITS AND OTHER PAINTINGS

    This is an 80 page book printed in full colour. It contains a wide range of paintings I have done - and consider important and-or my best work - since 1960.

    GETTING STARTED

    GETTING STARTED

    It's early stages yet, but here I am blocking in the composition and trying to get to grips with the colours.

    THE FINISHED ARTICLE

    THE FINISHED ARTICLE

    A few days later - the subject with the finished painting. A large finished portrait like this can be done from a good quality photograph. Like this one, it can done on two panels - for ease of shipping. If you are interested in a portrait of yourself - or someone else - why not ask me for a quote? You can contact me by email via Art-Finder. As a rough guied, a 2 metre high by 1 metre wide portrait would cost in the region of 1,000 to 1,500 Euros, including postage, packing, insurance and tracking.

    RAY WITH A FINISHED PORTRAIT

    RAY WITH A FINISHED PORTRAIT

    Here I am in my studio in a small medieval village in SW France. It's a wonderful space on the top floor of a large, 800 year old house. (Yes, that's not a mistake, our house is eight hundred years old - but refurbished, of course).
