Colour Contrast June 2018

Here are a series of six colour studies painted in watercolour. Essentially they are a compacted representation of what can be achieved using a very primitive set of colour mixes revolving around the basic six  primary and tertiary colours. Although there are 6 paintings, in theory each square could be interpreted as a separate painting […]

Aerosol Paintings

Here are 12 of my very latest paintings. They are all painted with black aerosol paint on watercolour paper. There are a number of techniques I’m experimenting with to mask certain areas out. It’s all about being patient and accurate. What I’m looking to highlight is simple contrast. Making (as with watercolour) the white of […]

Squares And Spheres

Here is a story in pictures about how may latest work has developed. They vary in size from 50 x 70 cm to 35 x 50. It’s all based on using directly opposing colours in a slightly less structured way than my cube work from 2017. I’ve not included every painting on the journey just […]

New “Floating” Abstracts February 2017

This is an idea I revisit every so often since conception in 2006. I call them floating as the sections of the original watercolour image seem to literally float above the paper,. it’s remarkably three dimensional. The paintings are painted in two phases. The first image is an original watercolour. On some occasions a recognisable […]

Highlands November 2017

I’ve just decided to publish this set of work from earlier this year. It’s based on a scene from Northern Scotland. I did a great deal of paintings to achieve what I think are the right colours. All sizes are the actual image size. If you have any questions regarding pricing contact me either back […]

All Hallows Eve

I very recently completed another illustration for a book cover. It’s a gothic horror story written by an author from the USA. With Halloween coming up I thought I might release the studies that went towards the final work. It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals particularly the […]

Uber Autumn

I don’t know about you but autumn is certainly my favorite season. The lower light coupled with the changing colours make particularly woodlands an inspirational subject. I’ve a love of foraging not just fruits and berries but mushrooms as well. I painted a series of work on autumn in my Uberpainting style. Have a look […]
