Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and my new life in South Africa: See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels in this exciting country.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

WIP 1 - Cape Town Painting

Hi everyone, Did some work in my studio today.   First I outlined a grid on my sketch first. I wasn't sure  I thought about adding in another boat (a sailboat in the forefront along the dock) Added one in roughly in red and for a visual test work.  After seeing this example, I don't think this will be a good addition to my painting.  It will crowd the front and and take away from my boats/and buildings in back. I will not be adding this other sailboat.

Then I prepared my grid on my Canvas for the layout of the drawing. Now Finished my charcoal drawing on my canvas. The worse is done! lol. I will now outline and fix some areas. Then start to block in colour hopefully today or it will be tomorrow. Have a great day.
