First painting from a new model....

Yes, this is the first painting from a new model. This figure promises a series of interesting paintings.... In that the model is quite sumptious, full of interesting shapes. To be honest, with this one I'm playing safe and not attempting to experiment, as in the previous painting. I still find it difficult to break out of my way of working, but come back to my natural and instinctive way of working. Yet I often feel I want to break away from it. Once I've done several more working from this model, then I will feel confident to take it to a new challenging direction! So watch this space. Again this painting is for sale: size 20x16 inches, oil on canvas, price £120 sterling. Will post to most countries. To find out more, please visit: www.nudepaintingsnude.co.uk

A recent nude study, completed in the last few days. I was experimenting a little, wanting to move away from depicting the model in a too literal way. Wanted to use colour and heighten it. Capturing the features of the model wasn't what interested me on this occasion. In my next paintings I want to explore the use of texture of the paint, thick and thin. Sounds easy! In fact working outside of a well established norm does take a leap of both faith and courage! As I often tell my students, painting isn't at all easy. It's a constant battle. This painting, measuring 20x16 inches is for sale, please visit: www.nudepaintingsnude.co.uk

new website goes live

Since starting my fine art degree back in 2001 I have always worked from the model, both male and female nudes. I have now decided to devote my new site exclusively to this subject, also figurative work. I am busy working in my studio producing new work, based on the nude figure, and I will be posting it as the days go by. All the work is for sale. The painting here is 32x36 inches (80x90cm). Is oil on canvas, priced at £560, sterling. I will ship to most countries, please contact me if interested in this painting.
