This is where I am working at the moment, in full view of the public and other artists, yikes. It is in Regent Court Shopping Centre, Livery Street, Leamington Spa. Enjoying the environment, it is peaceful and open. Getting loads of stuff done too so, if you are around in Leamington Spa do pop in. Here is a little film of a walk around it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oZ7GUA7ETs
This one is called Coffee Pot and is a work in progress but all I have to do is finish the painting the browns on that cream bit that is there.
This one is called Pepsi Cans and is also a work in progress. This has now had 2 layers of paint added. Both of these paintings are being worked on in the new studio.
....and this is a commission that I started today. I have got the tongue slightly too high so I will be moving that down tomorrow. I thought the dog was amazing as it looked like it was laughing all of the time. It is called a Labradoodle.
I am working on all of these paintings at Gallery 150, Regent Court Shopping Centre, Livery Street, Leamington Spa so if you are in the area, do pop in and say hello.
Had to resort to doing another still life too and this one is being worked on at the moment. The blue thing is the start of a label. I was in the supermarket when a saw a woman sticking her nails into the pears to test whether they were ripe (I suppose). At first I was disgusted but then when I looked at the pear I thought I would buy it and use it in a painting. I liked the nail marks and the bruising that she had caused.
This one is still being worked on at the moment. I have added the strip of red down the side to attempt to balance the painting and add some contrast to the black and white.
I really dont know where this one came from, I have some very strange ideas sometimes. Still here he is, it is a Bulldog and he is supposed to be looking through a window on a rainy night. The white bit in the corner is not a flash bouncing off it, it is painted on.
Here is a portrait that I completed during October. It is of a lovely lady that I know. It is oil on canvas and 16"x12" so not huge.
I have added another two layers of red and one of green today. In the background you can see the peppar that I am using for the painting and, yes, it is orange. I decided that I preferred the red one so have just changed the colour. I will put on another 2 or 3 layers of colour until I get the depth that I need and will then start adding white for the highlights, which is my favourite part of any painting. I have now found an image that I would like to use in my next one so will be starting that later today. I have also got to add some more to that portrait that I started as most of that is now dry. If I do any to that I will update again later. Hope you all had a good day today.
