This is a recent original oil painting , i did a few preparatory sketches first which i don't normally do , i think it did help, a while ago i completed a similar painting to this but though i would try again , i wanted a little more dry brush , a little more warmth and very loose brush strokes so had to be confident and quick , "looks simple" but effective i hope , i am pleased with it , never totally happy though , i think that's what keeps most "Artists / Painters" going . It is for sale and available direct : please firstname.lastname@example.org details .
My paintings are completed using oil on board, linen or cotton canvas,i have been painting for a living for 30 years. I paint simple observations of people and city street scenes, my intension is simply to paint on and enjoy, I have exhibited throughout the UK and in the USA . This blog will be updated with new work and Exhibition information every now and again. Thanks for stopping by.
