Thats it for today. I can`t wait to start this in the morning.
I was driving home from Morrisons and caught a glimpse of Penzance I had not noticed and thought ah ah! There is a painting. Keeping it neutral

It does feel like I am spending an awfully long time on something I am not sure about. Although it is to replace something lost. I miss the muted tones as I can see where I am going.But the flip of that is it is a nice change.
Sometimes I wonder if the previous version was better. You make decisions and you have to stick with them.. Day 2

Just looked at the clock and it`s 4 o clock. Cant believe the time has gone so fast. I was up at 7 this morning. OK need a swim now so here is end of day Marrakech
Starting a new Marrakech painting today to replace the one I sold and wish I hadn`t. Needed the money and there is a gaping hole in my wall that looks empty.

One o clock.  People coming soon................ Max 3

This is The Clock Tower or the Lloyd's building that has a statue of Humphrey Davy at the front and dominates top of the town. Its a very impressive building  . St Michael's Mount can be seen in the distant with a bit of artistic licence. Its all very grey but this is how it is in Cornwall.
Something a little lighter in tone. Day 2

I imagine a lot of you are getting fed up with these darker ones or even left all together. But I can see something and persisting. This is my 3rd day on this. I like painting local scenes. There is something right about it at the moment and in these times.

I am doing another Penzance dark picture./ Its not right yet I know but I keep in going.

Monday, 9 July 2012

Can I introduce you to Market House Gallery in Marazion. They really are great. The work they have is top class. This is my main gallery in Cornwall and I always concentrate on giving them the best of my work except for Thompson Gallery in Alderburgh.
I sent them the Penzance Lloyds building picture to see if they liked it . I was worried that it was to grim. I liked it. That's why I painted it and I cant explain that.I just do and they liked it too except for the clock which in real life is positioned centre instead of right as I have it. I did this because when I sketched this I was standing to the left and that's were the clock was but when I came to paint it I changed the angle.

So I have re positioned it Also the picture is slightly skew wiff. . It isn`t in real life .

For those of you who follow this blog and think I have slipped into some kind of depression with all these grim paintings something a little more colourful. Well a little more.....I started this last week and am still working on it.

Have a studio full of darker paintings. These are all of local scenes and for a local market. I`m am sure it won`t last long before some colour comes back. Oh and thers Tommy the cat shuffling out the door.

Hello! Ive been away in London and the Isle of White. Had a lovely break.
Went to London with my daughter Alana to see the RA and to Desiguil our favourite Brand in Regent street to buy stuff.

Firstly what a joy to go with my 13ry old bright articulate daughter. And how wonderful that I made it in one piece.
I really enjoyed going to see the Art and it made me feel that I am on the right track.

We love London. More later........................
