You might have noticed I seem to have lapsed at sharing my portrait paintings with you
I haven’t forgotten the supporters and followers of my artwork, there has been a reason for this ‘quiet’ period.
Firstly I want to say I love painting portraits, from meeting my lovely subjects, getting to know them, having a laugh (a definite pre-requisite) and being able to create a unique and individual piece of artwork. I love capturing someone in a moment and preserving it for a family’s future generations. Before you begin to wonder I am still painting portrait commissions, but quietly and only by request.
By painting portraits by request this allows me more time to develop and expand my painting techniques and subject matters. This means that all your requests for more of my artwork that you can see and access, will become available to you.
I know you can’t please all of the people all of the time, but I’m trying to find ways to make my artwork more accessible to my lovely supporters (you). With your wonderful supportive comments, I keep striving to challenge myself further and I want to share more than just a commissioned artwork with you (steady!)
So where am I leading you to. Well this year I have been concentrating on landscapes and assessing what I want to communicate in these artworks with you, basically how can I connect my artwork, painting technique and the way I see the world, with you.
Therefore I’ve organised myself, so that as my artworks build I’ll be discussing them in more detail and sharing my drawings, sketches and quick watercolour washes with you as I develop the paintings. Of course I’ll want your input as I go along, you might not think it, but it’s invaluable to me.
So I hope you’re looking forward to and enjoy sharing the next phase of my painting journey.
Just to give you a taster, I’m sharing one my completed landscapes, which should put you in the Autumn mood. Let me know what you think.
