Constructivism February 2019

After my 2018 explorations into the De Stjil school I decided to further explore my interests in the division of space through what could loosely be described as an initial foray into constructivism. This forms an extensive and very influencial part of 20th century modern art. Essentially it’s name is gives it away, an image […]

Aerosols January 2019

I’ve started 2019 revisiting my aerosol explorations. It’s a perfect medium for me to expand my interests in colour, contrast and geometry. I’ve included a varied set of six here for you as well as some photographs and explanations of the process and thoughts behind the work. Excuse the slightly off centre photographs, I need […]

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 […]
