Work in progress: Moonlight

Here’s a sneaky peek at a work in progress, it’s called moonlight over Worms head.

I still have lots to do… Hope you like! 🙂



Painting Broadpool at twilight

Here’s my latest painting, its very much a work in progress. Its much bigger than the other canvases so has taken alot more work to get right. The location is Broad Pool, Gower Peninsula, South Wales – which is one of my favourite locations, Its based on a photo of mine which was taken at dawn, with the colours just starting to appear in the sky, reflection and low lying mist.


Painting Snowdon

This weekend I have been painting Snowdon, based on a photograph of mine taken at Llannau Mymbyr, Capel Curig, North Wales.

It was the hardest painting so far as the amount of detailed objects in it.

Really enjoying my rekindled love of painting.


Hmm, what’s next?!…

Don’t worry I haven’t given up photography, while the skies are a plain blue canvas and the shadows minimal I am painting.

Painting Rhossili

I enjoyed painting so much I did another one. I wanted to create the feeling of a hazy summers day, the summer bit came quite natural as the weather in Wales right now is beautiful, but I was missing the haziness, so I decided to watch jaws – not for the shark bit, but for the style, the sounds and the way they made me feel when painting the canvas.

I really like the effect, painting is really helping me to relax.

And the photo it’s based on:


Painting Limeslade

Recently I’ve had a real urge to get back into painting, it’s been so long since I really painted, so I decided to give it a go.
I really enjoyed it, it’s as if I never stopped. I’m very lucky as I have lots of landscapes to paint 🙂

And here’s the photo it’s based on:

It’s not as dark and moody as the original and I’ve added more movement to the water. With art I am able to omit items I don’t want and add items if I want 🙂

Day 51/365 – A Talented Artist

The other night I had the privilege of photographing the incredibly talented local artist and friend Sian Cartledge.

She needed some profile shots to use in an article about her, which is to be included in the programme for World Snooker Masters tournament 2013 in Alexandra Palace, London. Exciting!!


I used my wide angle lens to get everything in shot, as my standard lens wasn’t wide enough to include all the elements. I tried all types of angles, but in the end this was the best one.

She has a blog, take a look 🙂
