WILD AT HEART STUDIO...

This is my workplace….a timber cabin set in a wild garden in rural Lincolnshire.

My oil paintings are made in here…

My studio has space for finished paintings to hang on the walls.  I like to have them around me when I work.  They can be a source of inspiration for a new piece especially if I am working in a series.

 

 

 

STUDIO WORK

New paintings ‘resting’ in my workspace...

I am preparing a group of pictures for exhibitions this year.  

 

A collage of new paintings this month.

May seems to be featuring red, orange and blue.

 

 

 

 

Three recently finished pieces as a group.

These are about the landscape around me...

I love working with oils to make colourful pictures.   The process of moving paint around is, for me, an exciting occupation.   

My technique is one of creation-destruction-creation as I gradually tease out a finished piece of work.   Often a painting will evolve into something far away from the beginning.

I use Artist Quality Oils.  Sometimes I mix them together with Cold Wax Medium.  I love the way the wax moves as I sculpt the oils with a brush or knife, squeegees and brayers.   Making many layers and scraping back reveals colour below rather like archeology.   The worn textured appearance is exciting.  

Cold Wax medium adds translucency and texture to the surface.  It dries with a matte finish.  

Paintings are mostly put aside to dry before continuing with the process.  They can take many weeks to make and are finished when I feel happy with composition and colour harmony. 

 

Another corner in my studio...

 

A painting in progress... Reminiscent of tracks and trails  with fields and ponds.

 

 

STUDIO GIFTS & CARDS

I use some of my designs as prints on small gifts and greetings cards.  Often a fragment of the painting can become a little picture.

 

Here are some examples taken from my recent paintings.
