Matisse - for my Wife

My wife did not have a few millions £s to buy a Matisse collage so she asked me to create one for her at a much lower cost - nothing!! This is a simple cut card collage trying to capture the feel of Matisse - she seems to like it!!



Set behind glass in a heavy grained real wood frame which is lightly lime washed.

Scott Grey Still Life

I have been quite distracted by other work and sadly the artwork has had to take second place which it may have to for a short while to come.

In the meantime I have had time to finish off a large canvas which carries on the William Scott still life theme.




Set in a natural wood surround frame measuring 43" x 33" x 3"

Still Life with charcoal


This was more an exercise in learning how to use charcoal pencils rather than creating a still life!! Having now learnt how messy it can be it has not deterred me from exploring the use of pencils in the future once I have more time to spend on my art and I have cleared up the current mess I made with this one [thank you Ben Nicholson once again!!].



 

The backboard was undercoated in texture medium then dry brush painted before the shapes were created with medium and hard charcoal pencils.

Set behind glass in a shallow wood box frame finished in white - 29" x 21" x 2"

Lyme Regis revisted

With time for my art at a premium I have been turning back the clock and working on a piece which was a style that I created almost at the beginning of my new career. The style and pieces I created back in 2009 were well received and I was fortunate to sell each piece which left me with very little to refer to. I had always thought that I had abandoned the style a little too soon and look forward to developing it further with what I hope to be a little more ability acquired since 2009!!!

A funny but satisfying experience in trying to remember just how I did them and I am pleased with this 2018 version.

Lyme Regis 2018



Various paints on board and set behind glass in my trademark shallow box frame and the framed piece measures 29" x 23" x 2"
