Been recently experimenting with layering with washes of different shades, adding lines (with carbon), some with collage of off-cuts of old watercolour paper – deciding on how to move along with the development of the work.

Untitled No. 3 | Acrylic & Carbon on Paper with Collage | 40cm x 57cm

The second of two experiments, layer upon layer over a collage of work (an old Matisse calendar!). The challenge was finding the image within the layers and developing and uncovering the motif as the process went on.



Collaged some old images from an expired calendar, over-painted, scratched, over-painted, drew, marked – the cycle continued for 10+ visits, ending with some marks that became the final landscape…

Made in the studio.  Acrylic with ‘Liquitex Gloss Medium’ and graphite on Arches watercolour paper.  15cm x 28cm.  A gift for my nephew.

A recent work from my studio |  Acrylic on Saunders Waterford Paper | Re-imagined Experiences Influencing the Abstract.


Acrylic on Watercolour Paper | 28cm x 38cm

Dungeness Inspired; following a visit in very bad weather and making work outdoors (see here) these were made in the studio, using acrylic and watercolour paper.  Painted as one on separate sheets 38cm x 28cm.  They work together more than as separate items – interesting experiment.

Set of 3 Acrylics and Graphite on Watercolour Paper.  Inspired by a recent visit to Dungeness – Painted as one work on separate sheets 24cm x 28cm.

Done during a very blustery visit (tail end of the US storm Henry) – 40mph winds.  Had to weigh down the book using stones and pebbles and paint through and around these… more work from the 2 day visit here
