Lockdown life

Well no one could have foreseen this craziness!

luckily we managed to get the last flight out of Liberia airport for the foreseeable future…

Back at home on lockdown I feel even more grateful than usual to live in this beautiful part of the world and also guilty at the same time to have such space at my fingertips when some are experiencing the hardest of times.

As you can imagine, being an artist is quite suited to lockdown life, plenty of time to catch up on commissions and get started on some Costa Rica inspired work too…

I took a series of underwater photos while away to work from when back in the studio…here’s the first ‘swimmer I’

On the easel at the moment is a commission of Woolacombe and there is a Costa Rica aerial in the pipeline so stay tuned for those!!

Winter time

Winter time is my busy painting season!

Most of my commissions are undertaken during the winter months and this year has not been an exception! As well as ocean surface studies I have had many Woolacombe based paintings going out.

Woolacombe is a beautiful part of the coastline and I never tire of painting it. Different angles and views, wet sand reflecting the sky and every kind of weather and sea state affect them and so no two days are the same.

Latest commission piece

Here is my latest commissioned painting. It measures 5ft x 3ft and was an absolute joy to paint!

I love to use palette knife to create texture and layers in the foreground in conjunction with a smooth tranquil sky. Happily the family who wanted this view of Lundy Island are really pleased with it and couldn’t wait to get it on the wall!

All commissions are considered so please just get in touch 🙂
