Two paintings today, both with underpainting in bright red and orange, but surface colours mostly blues
This one is my regular size, 80 cm sq
Title :’All manner of things I’ll never understand’
This is a big one, 160cm x 220 cm, unstretched canvas, stapled to the studio wall. ‘Is there anyone there?’

These 2 are each 60cm square and have undergone a change of heart, or a facelift or a renaissance! Formerly they were darker and mostly orange and quite ‘loud’ with a title to reflect that mood : ‘Tolerate chaos’- the title taken from the 10 well known painting rules of the Bay artist, Richard Diebenkorn.
Now they are calmer and paler, with a new title, ‘Formerly chaos’, perhaps with a nod to us being in control of our moods along with our palette if we so choose!
These 2 are a bit bigger, at 80cm square. They have had a similar transformation using a pale palette of pale ochres, yellows and some very pale blue. Their former title was ‘Oceans, a tipping point’ – part of a series of 5 canvases. They haven’t got new individual names yet
Thus one is ‘Musing’, also 80cm square plus frame, painted 2 years ago on my furst residency at Stiwdio Maelor in Corris in Wales and then exhibited at a group show at Terre Verte Gallery in Cornwall. Home now from her adventures
These 2, ‘Sunshine 1&2’ have also just returned from Cornwall and are also each 80cm square plus frame

having some fun with photo editor after a (very bracing) walk on the beach
colour is such a tonic 🙂
quite surreal this morning watching the huge tubular tree structure being dismantled in Tavira
starting to cover the first layer of red with a pale creamy green
The strong red is proving to be very tenacious, adding marble dust and yellow powder pigment in with the green
first two layers nearly ready, coffee break before third layer!
