Oliver’s View

This is a variation of an earlier watercolour of a close in Rothesay on beautiful Bute . This time though , a feline intruder , Oliver , has entered the scene . The painting was done as a moving in present for the person Oliver allows to live with him and feed him .

Hannah’s Back

I’ve tried to push my technique a little with this painting . It’s quite a large watercolour piece ( 69×43 cm ), painted from life . I started with a reddish wash and lifted some of the colour to produce the highlights before working into it with darker paint and watercolour pencils before adding gouache . I’m planning to develop the technique a little with subsequent work . Apologies to Hannah if I gave her a bit of a stiff neck ….. but then , I’ve always been a pain in the neck I suppose .

Reds & Greens

This is the close of a friend . Because of security doors most of the tenements I can get access to seem to be those of people I know , these days . Anyhow , this lovely , spiral stairway is on the outskirts of Rothesay on beautiful Bute . As is often the case , I struggled for a title so fell back on a description of the colours .

Sorcha with a head-scarf

I’ve not been producing any new original prints for over 3 years but I’ve started on a few new ones over the last month or so . This is one of the first to be finished . It’s a mezzotint , which is a very time-consuming engraving technique (more details at the top of my ‘original print ‘ page )

A stripey Jordan again

Another examination of stripes and the human body . This is another study of the ever patient Jordan . In this drawing I was interested in the way the black dress material appears to make the model’s body disappear into the background . The drawing involved two , two hour sittings from life , followed by a little tweaking later .

White Stripes

Another in my series of figure/portrait studies of the human body , defined by stripes . This time it’s my regular ( and very patient sitter ) , Jordan ,wearing a black dress with white stripes . I like the way that , without the stripes , she would appear to disappear into the background .
