Yes, I know it's been a while. What can I say? I have been busy (he says!).  I recently had an exhibition in Le Bono, France which took a lot of preparation and I am preparing for an exhibition in the UK in my home town of Sunderland.
I'd like to do some time-lapse youtube of some of my paintings. Does anyone reading this have experience with doing them? I think I have all the equipment...DSLR, intervalometer, Mac with iMovie. I just need to know the interval times for a day's painting and how many shots I should take...along with tips on where to get music.
So, if you can help, please drop me an email.
Happy painting!
Thanks, Sunny Avocado for the reply!

I painted this scene in 2012 entitled Impressions of Paris but it came out very dull. I've overpainted it with more colour and it now has a new title to match the new mood.There is a part of me that wants to run rampant with colour with no regard for detail. I'm going to have to give in at some point and see where it leads.

30 paintings in 30 days challenge.


I have two more to add which makes 25. It isn't quite 30, but I'm satisfied.

Number 24. Sunset over Trédrez-Locquémeau.


Sunset over Trédrez-Locquémeau.
6x6 inches. Oil on Board.

The rock formations are pretty impressive in this region of Brittany.

I didn't manage to do my 30 in 30, but 24 is an improvement on last time.

Number 23. Rollers.


Rollers.
6x6 inches. Oil on Board.

Give me large waves and I'm happy, but painting them in oils is a frustrating business. I guess practice makes perfect.

Number 22. Shallow Reflections


Shallow Reflections
6x6 inches. Oil on Board.

This is a stronger more detailed version of a painting I did a number of years ago. I just love reflections on water.
