New beginnings...

It's that time! I am FINALLY getting around to building my website!
It's long overdue and it means I'll be absent for a while, but I think it will be time well spent, since my blog is more of an interactive playground for a mixture of all sorts rather than an area for people to see or buy my more refined artwork.

I will also be giving my blog a huge revamp.  
At the moment it seems to reflect my personality more than it does my work and I'd like it to tie in nicely with my website. So, over the coming weeks you will notice some gradual changes here, until it looks quite different than it does now :0)

But the BEST news of all, is that this coming winter I will be in a position where I can increase my painting time significantly and indefinitely. This will make a huge difference to my productivity.
I am so exited about this because I have another bear series in mind along with so many other ideas! 

Anyway - for now I will leave you with one of what will be a series of three paintings, collectively titled 'Fruit Cocktail', which is a rather more obvious title than their individual ones.
 This particular one is titled... 'Not an Apple' ;0) 

And it's what I call a 'distance' painting, where the detail is quite minimal, 
but it appears realistic when viewed from a distance...

See what I mean?

Anyway, I am part way through 'Not a Banana' as we speak 
and I imagine that once all three completed paintings are framed and in a row, they will look rather appetising :0)

See you soon!

A Little Ray of Sunshine...

With not a single ray of sunshine to be seen
 I decided to draw one...


Sometimes when we can't see beyond the clouds
 we just have to trust that the sun is still shining as it always has :0)

Warming up...

I thought I would spare you any more bear talk today, whilst I warm up for a new year of paintings! 

As I often do early on in the year, when the days are short and I've had a break, I tend to do a lot of  sketching, it helps to scratch that creative itch!

Here is one subject I particularly enjoy drawing... 

The Nose!

Or Honk...                                                                   Or Conk..


The Hooter... 

      The Snout...                                                                     And the cute little button...


These rather odd projections which protrude from our faces make the perfect subjects to draw. They are all so different!

And I think it's a good idea to concentrate on one subject for a while. 
It's a really good way to get to know it well :0)

Did you know that noses never stop growing? Now there's a scary thought - Ooer!!

Anyway, enough nosey nonsense! I will be sharing a new glass sketch in my next post and then it's back to some painting - So watch this space :0)
