Flower in a vase

I'm sure this has been on my blog sometime before but I have just put it on my Daily Paintworks site so thought I'd give it another run out here. 

It's an acrylic painting on canvas board and measures 14x10 inches

Pencil sketch of Andy Warhol

Needed a confidence boost and so went back to what I know with a simple pencil sketch. No idea why I chose Mr Warhol, I have a book called , 'icons' that I specifically bought to give me some good reference material and this photo simply jumped out at me tonight.
The photographer is believed to be Victor Bockris.

Finished and going onto my DPW site 

It is unfinished at the moment

Two seascapes

A couple of seascapes, the top one is like a Turner inspired one that I think I did from an Alwyn Crawshaw book, the bottom one is just one from my imagination. I did these about ten months ago but forgot to upload them or I decided not to !

Misty forest after Tim Gagnon

This is a painting inspired by Tim Gagnon, his work is brilliant especially his clouds. 
It's also one of the biggest paintings I've ever done at 24x18 inches in size. 

Acrylic on canvas board 
To give an idea of size, but its blurred.

Autumn fun

This time of year (in the UK I hasten to add) is the autumnal season and time to get wrapped up and give all those leaves a good old kicking preferably not immediately after someone has spent all afternoon sweeping them up though ! 

This little kid obviously agrees with me.

Sophia on the beach

This is a larger version of an earlier drawing that I did whilst on holiday in Rhodes recently. I gave the first drawing to Sophia's parents as a thank you for allowing me to draw her. This is on my daily Paintworks site for sale. 

This measures 14" x 11" and is a pure graphite 4b stick on Daler Rowney 65lb paper.

If you need me I'll be here !

This weekend is the Monk Fryston art club annual exhibition and here are the four paintings I'm submitting despite having a lot of stuff going on in my life I found time to take time out and paint. It helps and of course I love it.

Run to the sun

Shadow chaser

Retiring chap

This is a draft poster I'm doing for a chief inspector that is retiring soon. 
He spent some of his career on traffic hence the transition between the Morris Minor and the suped up version. 
I'm probably being a little unkind with the age of the Morris Minor I'm sure they didn't really have them when he joined.....well maybe not !
