This acrylic painting was created during December 2016 just before Christmas. It is painted on paper sized at 16” x 12”. Shown is a scene on a cold, winters day at Lepe, an area of coastline on the South of England in the county of Hampshire. A mother and daughter can be seen on the seashore, a 'castle' shaped bucket to the side. On the sea can be seen a man on a water-ski being propelled by a kite. In the far distance past the active, wavy sea, can be seen the Isle of Wight. 
The painting can be seen in close up here.

Sea Water and Rocks - oil painting

Sea Water and Rocks - oil painting

This sea based painting was done during late December 2016. It features a number of rocks on the coast with the sea water hitting them and settling around on the wet sand. The rocks are of quite a light coloured stone and some have algae growing on them.
It is based on a scene observed at Mudeford, Christchurch in Dorset, on the south coast of the UK.
The painting is done in oils on an acrylic base. The support is thick paper sized at 16” x 20”.
The finished painting can be seen in more detail here.

Sea Water and Rocks - oil painting stages WIP

Sea Water and Rocks - oil painting stages WIP

This composite photograph shows three stages of a painting featuring rocks on a sandy beach and where they meet the sea water.
The first panel shows a rough sketch drawn in brown acrylic paint on an orange ground wash. In the second panel basic under-painting, using acrylics, has been added which acts as a guide to the following layer. These colours are usually a bit darker than the intended final colours and there is a lack of detail at this stage. The final panel shows the finish painting. At this stage the painting is done in oil paint with all of the details added. The painting is 20" x 16" and is done on paper.

Horses in Countryside Snow - digital painting

This countryside themed painting was created during early January 2017. Depicted in the painting is a countryside scene in the midst of winter on a crisp snowy day with bright sunshine and blue skies.Two horses are about taking in the changes to their normally grassy landscape. 
This is a subject I would normally painting in oils or acrylic paint but here it is painted digitally on a computer, the scene itself is just made up. The software used is ' Auto Sketchbook pro', with a small amount of texture details added in photoshop, plus some regrading colour wise to finish off the painting.
