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.
Wow, what a week I'm having, it's brilliant. I went back to painting live at Gallery 150 yesterday, after a week's holiday, and found out that both of my paintings had sold. I was also lucky enough to meet both of the buyers which made my day, week, fortnight, year!! I was so excited yesterday that I forgot to take a photo of the work that I had done, so ended up missing a day.
I think I have almost finished this painting now, I have just got to mess it up a bit as it looks a bit to pristine. So expect some blobs of fat and bits of tomatoe and juice around it. I am also struggling a bit with the bacon so have returned it to the start (it looks a bit raw at the moment). I think this is about it's 5th layer now. It is also quite a lot bigger than I normally do and that might be why it's taking me longer.
This is a painting that I have been working on at Gallery 150, Regent Court Shopping Centre, Leamington Spa. I started off with painting the mange tout and I am now trying to make it look like a plastic bag full of mange tout. It was quite worrying starting off because the vegtables looked ok and I had to put white paint all over them. If it didn't work it would have had to end up in the bin. That would not be good when working in the public eye. Colours used are raw umber, titanium white and sap green. There is also 3 layers of sap green on the mange tout.
