|Across the Avon at Stratford. oil. 6 x 8 inches. £99|
I hope you had a lovely Festive time and are looking forward to a good 2015. My workshops started again today and this is the demo I made, my approach is to demo in stages, after each the painters go and work that far and then I do the next and so on until the final stage when I place all the fine details and highlights (the jewellery as some painters call it). It was a bit of a rush today I only spent about 15 minutes on this because I want everyone else to paint! But a bit of tightening up and tidying later at home and thats it.

Continuing with the snow theme, this is another wild and kind of bold painting of the orchard back in France. The passages I enjoy in this painting the most are those in the trees and foliage where brushmarks are free and expressive, I do realise though that a balance with the more quiet areas is essential to make it work.

It looks like we won't be seeing snow through our windows this Christmas - if you're disappointed with that news have a look at the following emails I'll send, I'll be painting some snow with an emphasis on bold loose brushwork, and this year I am determined to move more towards abstraction.

An alternative view of Robin Hood's Bay in North Yorkshire, it began as yesterday's workshop demo and I finished it last night. I plonked it in the heavy frame which I like as it emphasises the strong bold colours in the painting.
