Plein Air

Here is a plein air oil painting I did on a recent holiday... It was fun! I think I paint a bit thin though, but time will improve it all. Such a peaceful place.

Some studies

I have been painting like a nutter at work, so here are some of my morning warmups to get into the good-painting-zone. I have found these studies really reduce the amount of 'erase, start again' that always happen when you try paint without being in the right mindset.

This is a study of a Zhaoming Wu Painting... so inspiring!

A quick still life... honing those painting skillz. I am amazed by how much you can learn by trying to paint a tissue.

And whilst showin a workmate some painting techniques... and being asked to put eyes on it, this happened....

Bad Hotel...

This is the by-product of a study I did for something at work. I imagined arriving at this place bag in hand expecting a nice hotel... lets hope it never happens!
