Saturday 26 April - now getting into the blog again after technical difficulties This is one of my new sea paintings.   Last December we spent a few days at Whitsand Bay in Cornwall and stayed in a cottage right on the beach.

New paintings I have put this painting on the website, it is part of a little series called Ramblings.  I never know how to title paintings, but as I do all my thinking whilst walking and swimming and so on, the title makes sense in some way.    I am not totally sure about it, but it has some interesting characteristics, the other two are on the website also.  I rather like the other two.

Getting used to the blog There is an awful lot of stuff I don't understand about using the blog, but hoping to get more clever with it, so that people can respond if they want to, and link it to twitter and facebook.     But for now, just putting on another photo of a recently completed painting of the Essex Fields series.

25 July A photo of another work in progress - Nearby Places series.   This one looks promising.  The one posted the other day has undergone changes and has now become a complete disaster, that's what happens sometimes.   However, I think the series as a whole has potential - very important to get a very good basic drawing, a structure to fall back on.    Nearby Places series
