Below are a few of the daily paintings I have recently finished. I try and complete a painting everyday when time allows. They are painted in either oils or acrylics on canvas boards (30x30cm). All the daily paintings are available for sale so please contact me to see if they are available and for a price.

I have been very busy recently with a run of Garden Designs for clients. It is good to have this work again but it has taken me away from my daily paintings! I managed to do this one today and I have plans to do a series of seascapes from photographs I took in the summer in Brittany.
I have a commission for three large paintings to start soon. I am ordering the large canvases and looking into which paints to buy. So far it is a toss up between GOLDEN, Liquitex and Winsor and Newton Artist quality Acrylic. I shall just have to buy some of each and give them a test!
Alf's Gardening Shoes - Oil on canvas board 30 x30 cm FOR SALE £80
We were having lunch recently with some friends and this pair of shoes was outside the back door! Obviously well used and wonderfully battered and old, I thought they would make a fantastic oil study for a daily painting! I loved the way they are trodden down at the back from being slipped on without un-doing them!!
I am getting more adept at using oils now for fairly detailed work and am really enjoying it. I still like to use acrylics sometimes but seem to be using oils more now. Am off to Brittany soon and hoping to gather lots for potential daily painting material. More seascapes too, hopefully!
