A painting of the Cutty Sark I did as a demo for the film I made with APV films. It is all about simplification, tone and a two layered process.

Just some people walking around. Very simple, but very much relies on the white bits.

Although not religious, I do like going into churches to enjoy the quiet and the light....and sometimes I even end up doing a painting of it.

The light inside churches is often beautiful. They are often designed well. Part of a bigger painting of church interior. A lot of at into wet work in this one.

Section of a large watercolour on canvas I titled "The rebirth of Venus". Contains a lot of symbolism and even some chemistry and mathematics πŸ˜€

Close up of the hand of a large watercolour on canvas. I even made the blood and put it on the model.

This is still only a section of the full large painting. A commission capturing the melancholy mood of battleships left to rust at scapa flow.

A small section of a very large painting. A lot of time was spent planning the full painting.

I have crossed this bridge so many times and also painted it a couple of times.... well did a painting of it, not actually painted the bridge.You know what I mean😁

Detail of watercolour on canvas of Tower bridge. Certain things work well on canvas.

A little more of the figure painting. Was quite happy with the edges and curves in this. I should paint the figure more often.

I like curves, but I like straight lines too :)

Sometimes a tonal study in one colour is all you need.
