20th Painting

Finally getting back to the blog paintings after about a week and a half of interruptions. Brilliant family wedding, deadlines for writing modules and interview for the MFA course at Newcastle Uni. Good result from the interview so looking forward to another 2 years studying....

19th Painting

Really enjoyed doing this painting of the Queen, hope you recognise her. However, got interrupted in the middle of it by a tutor, so I have no idea how long it took, possibly about 15 minutes. She was featured in the Guardian making Gordon Brown,...

18th Painting

Painting shows a model at the John Galliano show in Paris. Fluffy ruffle dresses echoed the hairstyles and in the image I used, the hair looked see-through and delicate. Very different image to yesterday's and Monday's. Feel the need to analyse what it is I'm...

13th Painting

Looking for images has made me question what impact I'm looking for in the work. It seems a bit of a waste to be be putting so much disciplined energy into this blog without giving more thought to what might be added by choosing a...

12th painting

In an attempt to cover the paper with paint and create a 'finished' painting, areas of the work feel frustratingly rough. The original image offered a face which would have been good to spend some time discovering. Maybe I need to stop 'blanketing' the paper...

11th Painting

Third week of uploading a daily image and it's been quite a start to the week. As I'm in my fourth and final year at university there's lots of deadlines to meet and even a 10 minute painting feels like an added achievement. This one...
