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.

Manarola WIP 7 contines

Hi Everyone, lots more work done to my painting since I last posted. Worked on foreground, nearly completed, added second coat of colour to the buildings, and the worse part that takes so long, blocking in the window spaces.   Next I will start outlining the buildings, then adding the window outlines for the window sills and shadowing to them (they will be all a tad smaller). Also will try ad complete foreground, and cement walls, boats, etc.   Still lots of work to be done

Hi Everyone, started work on my new Cinque Terre painting of Manarola.
Canvas Scaled and Prepped and Ready to go!
The worse part is done! my drawing on canvas. I will do a fast outline next and then start blocking in colour. Wont worry about the bldg. windows till next steps as I really like to mix those nice Italian colours right on my canvas I end up wiping out the windows anyways.
