Morning (Part 1)

This was painted in 1989. I've always found acrylic so much easier than oil, by using it quite dry I like to get the almost pop art feel that keeps the brush strokes less visible. Looking back I can see now why the digitial format appeals to me so much as the result is very 'graphic'. By the way, I don't know what happened to part two... maybe that is still to come!

COCA-COLA

Another acrylic in an almost graphic style. Just the sort of subject that I would love to do in digital if I was to draw it now....

Colt

This painting is tiny, a total contrast to my other horse painting, Thoroughbred. The acrylic was applied quite thickly, more like oil and even when scanned you can still get a feeling of fluid brush strokes. This painting was done quickly without any over-working and this produces a really nice spontaneous feel.
Painted in 1988.

Fruit Mix

One of the most frustrating things about painting is that you get all your brushes and paints out and then you can't think of anything to paint. Which is why I somehow ended up drawing a sweet wrapper! I can't remember the sweet, Soft Fruit or Fruitees or something. Anyhow I like the result!

Still Life

This is the other painting I bothered to get framed. It is a large painting however I'm disappointed on the digital reproduction as being so large and behind glass means it had to be photographed and this has effected the colours badly. Given time I will hopefully either revisit the capture or try and recreate the original colours in Photoshop.
