Welcome to my Blog

I am pleased to welcome you to my blog and though I am a complete novice when it comes to blogging I am excited by the possibilities it presents and look forward to showing you my work, the work that some of my students produce and to answering any questions you may have about aspects of the work, techniques used or just discussing painting and drawing.

Godshill Church Painting Demonstration

'Godshill Church, Isle of Wight'

This was the point that I had reached at the end of approximately 90 minutes of demonstrating with Winsor and Newton's 'Artisan' water mixable oils at the very friendly and welcoming Isle of Wight Art Club at the Riverside Centre on Tuesday November 15th 2011.

As it turns out in terms of time this was about a third of the way to completion as I spent approaching a further three hours bringing this painting to a conclusion as you will see in the picture below. I did a little more modelling on the church,  distant trees and hedges, added more detail to the grass/hay in the field, and added the shrubbery in the right hand forground. I also added the tree coming in on the right and then finished the lower forground with tha addition of more grasses, weeds and  general highlighting including a little more in the clouds.

Many thanks to all at The Isle of Wight Art Club for their welcome and interest, I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
