Plein Air Painting Day at Cromford, Derbyshire

I went out painting en plein air at Cromford, Derbyshire yesterday.  It was quite a challenge as it is not something I normally do.  I really enjoyed it though and plan to go out more often to paint in the landscape, especially now the weather is improving.  Here are the paintings - both of the same scene with different coloured grounds.

Exhibition News

So sorry I haven't written a post for ages - I will try and post more regularly and I am thinking of creating and posting a painting a day for the next month.  I don't know how realistic this will be but I can give it a try.  In the meantime, here are a few pictures from my exhibition at The Erewash Museum, Ilkeston, Derbyshire which runs from 7-28 May 2015.

Altering Paintings

Sometimes you can think that a painting is finished and then the next time you see it you just have to adjust it.  This was one of those paintings.  It was the subject of a recent post (see below) and has now morphed into this painting after many more layers and glazes of paint.

Feeling Floral

Here is a detail photo of an abstract floral work in progress - it feels a little cold at the moment so I think I shall be warming it up a bit next time I am in the studio.

Latest Painting

This painting has been hanging around for ages as it needed something but I just couldn't decide what to do to it.  Anyway, it called to me yesterday from behind some other paintings and here is the result after yesterday's painting session.  I think it could be finally finished.  I'm a little stuck for a title though so if you have any ideas ....

Abstract Landscape Paintings

I have been working on a few more abstract landscape paintings over the last couple of weeks.  I think my palette is changing and becoming more pastel in nature.  I rather like mixing and using these lighter colours.  Here is one that I have been working on.

Prints Available Via Fine Art America

I have been busy adding prints to Fine Art America so if you fancy a look just click on the link to the right of the page.  I will be adding more as time goes on. 

Here is an image of one of them - it is of a painting I did which I wasn't sure what to do with at the time and I ended up painting over it!  I should have given it a little more time as I like it now.   I decided I would use the image to create a print.

More experimentation on paper

I've been doing quite a lot of experimentation with abstracts on paper but I am itching to go larger again.  Here are some of the experiments.  I am thinking about turning some of them into prints but not sure yet which ones to use.  Anyway, here are today's mini paintings.
