Mel Stabins Figure

I decided to have a go at painting figures and found a book by a guy called Mel Stabin who 'for me' was easily identifiable as an American artist due to the style and colours he employs. This was a copy of one of his examples

I quite liked this scene so I completed three versions of it.

Variation On Friars Crag

This is a scene painted with Friars Crag in mind yet the distant hills are not accurate reproductions of the scene. I guess thats why it's an impression.

Pin Mill Monochrome

Hi there

I have just returned from a painting holiday with a fellow artist who thought this ink monochrome sketch of mine drawn at Pin Mill Suffolk was quite good. I certainly think it was better than some other attempts at plein air painting I tried ;-)

This is a painting of the River Douglas recently sold at the Spring Exhibition of the Pendle Artists which was held at the ACE centre Nelson Lancashire.

It was produced from sketches drawn some time ago and brought to life as a loose watercolour only a few months ago. It is always a huge compliment and encouragement when someone buys your painting.
