Brussels and Leeks

Brussels and Leeks (25cm x 30cm oil on board)

Green.  Yellow-green, Blue-green, Viridian…..

Rather ambitiously I decided to challenge myself to create a painting comprised almost entirely of green and to mix those greens rather than use greens out of the tube.  This did turn out to be quite tricky – both to paint and to photograph for this blog.  Let’s say it was a learning experience, which I guess is what it’s all about!

They say, incidentally, that frost is good for leeks and sprouts as it makes them sweeter.  They should be delicious this Winter then as we’ve had heavy frost (and some snow) here for what seems like ages.

Studio Sale and Giclee Prints

Christmas is proving to be a very busy time this year.  Starting today (5 December) I am having a Studio Sale – 12 framed original paintings at significantly reduced prices – my own 12 Days of Christmas if you like.   You can find the link to my website here If you are local to Stamford come and take a look at the paintings in person (message me first to ensure I am in!).  The kettle will be on and there may be a mince pie too…

I have also had some high quality giclee prints done of 5 paintings.  I am really pleased with how these have turned out.  These are available to order through the website too – see

Still trying to find time to paint – and more about that soon!
