( Working Titles )
( Updated 11th July 2014: 'Plough Horses' next stage added )
Poughing Horses, 30'' by 20' - A large..ish painting of horses ploughing a field. I'm just laying in some paint and gradually working out the composition as I go.
Update - this painting is very nearly finished now, just some work to do in a few places, the ploughman, the manes, e.t.c.
New Quay Commission, 26'' by 24'' - Here I am starting a large painting of New Quay, which is a beautiful coastal village here in West Wales. This stage mainly involves blocking-in the large areas of the canvas with approximately the right colour.. in approximately the right place. This is great fun, and there isn't any pressure at this stage of a painting, as nearly everything you can see here will be re-painted/painted over at a later stage and as the painting progresses.
Painting completed - SOLD
3 Welsh Beaches, 10'' by 5'' Box Canvas - As you will have no doubt noticed... there are only 2 paintings started on my easel here, the 3rd painting is waiting to be started. This is a new project I'm embarking on, to paint a series of smaller paintings, which can be bought individually or as a set of three. The first trio are some of my favorite beaches here in west Wales: Mwnt, Poppit, and ? ( to be decided ).
These paintings will be priced at £98 each, or £260 for a set of three. So if you have 3 favorite scenes you'd like painted as these smaller original oil paintings, let me know what they are.. and I'll paint them for you!
The 3 paintings in the 'West Wales Collection' and now finished, deciding to paint beautiful 'Tresaith Beach' in Ceredigion, as the third painting. These paintings are available and ready to ship, find out more about these paintings and how you can purchase the West Wales Collection Here.
Hostel Commission 20'' by 16'' - This is a painting of one of the Elenydd Wilderness hostels, high up in the Cambrian mountains of Wales. In this first stage I've just blocked in the shapes very loosely, in something close to the right colour and tone. The next stage is to refine and adjust what's already here, leaving all the details and highlights until much later.
Welsh mountain scene 24'' by 18'' - In the studio at the moment I have a few different paintings in different stages of completion. This one, a scene high up in the Cambrian mountains, is coming along quite nicely so far. I've got most of the painting in there, but I'll let it sit out of sight a while now and come back to look at it with fresh eyes in a couple of days, to re-assess.
*This painting is finished and will be available soon.*
Milford Sound, New Zealand 10'' by 8'' - I've recently returned from a 6 week trip to New Zealand, and my head is full of ideas for a NZ series of paintings. This is my first one, a view of Milford Sound and the famous Mitre Peak, on the south island. This just a small painting, a warmer-upperer.. if you will, ..watch this space for more NZ paintings to come.
