Blue and Green Marbles

4x4 inches, acrylic on canvas board. $25. Place a Bid

Here's a study of marbles with light shining through them. I love the colourful shadows they cast.

I've been working in oils for the most part recently and while I love the way my paintings are coming out, I hate waiting for them to dry so I can scan and post them! I really have to take a photo of my fancy new 'drying shelves' and post it to my Facebook page one of these days- but it's been so rainy I've not even wanted to brave the ten-second run across the patio to the art shed! In the meantime, I'm posting my backlog of acrylics.

In The Bowl

29 November 2015- and we're up to date now.

6x8 inches, acrylic on stretched canvas.


I like painting reflections, and one of my favourite subjects, cherry tomatoes, make another appearance. I love how the bold background colour looks in this painting.

White House Among Fields

23 November 2015.

5x7 inches, oil on canvas board. SOLD.

A little landscape with a stormy sky. I love painting grey skies, maybe it's because I'm English and we have a lot of overcast, rainy days here. I think they have a beauty to them.

Apple and Radishes

21 November 2015.

6x6 inches, acrylic on canvas board. $40. Place a Bid

I love painting radishes. Their squat, round shape and the bold pink colour against their bright green leaves makes for a wonderful subject. And I love eating green apples, so this was a fun still life to paint. I was eating the other half of the apple as I painted!

A New Blog

I've been using Tumblr as my Daily Painting blog, because it's quicker to update for me, but in the long run I think Blogger is better for networking with other artists.

So, about me. I'm 21, I live in Hertfordshire, England, and am studying for a Degree in Painting with the OCA. I use Winsor & Newton water-mixable oils and Daler Rowney acrylics, and mostly paint still life and landscapes. When not painting, I'm drawing, taking photographs or watching football. When the weather allows I try to get out and sketch buildings and people in town- I'm hoping that in the coming year I'll be able to do some plein air painting as well.

You can find me on the following sites:

My Website (which will soon be redesigned)
My Daily Paintworks Gallery
My Redbubble Shop
My Facebook Page
My Tumblr Blog

If you're in Hertfordshire, you can find original paintings by me for sale in Framework Photographic, Letchworth GC.

I'll start this blog off by posting a few of my recent paintings and try to keep it updated from now on!
