Here’s a new video for my Youtube channel. A remake of my 2014 landscape painting ‘The Harbour, Cornwall’ that was recently commissioned.
Here’s a look at some recent work I’ve been doing on an abstract oil painting, a few stills and a quick time lapse video. It’s the latest from the ‘Metropolis’ collection. I’m going to do another small oil similar to this one then we will take the same palette and style and start work on some large abstract canvases. Really enjoying filming these paintings and I’m excited to see where we’ll be heading with them in the future. I need to start thinking beyond time lapses though…
I actually thought this abstract painting was destined for the scrap heap. You’ll see from the video that it was going ok, but at the end I just thought that it wasn’t up to scratch. The values were all wrong and it basically was just bugging me…So I spent another session on it and think I just about turned it around in the end. Abstract painting saved…just!

I thought I’d share a recent oil painting commission of Bath City with you that I finished recently. Had a real challenge getting in all the detail but still keeping it ‘loose’, got there in the end. I find these commissions force me to try new ideas and techniques that perhaps I wouldn’t normally take on. I know quite a few artists that aren’t too keen on doing commissions, but I have to say that although they aren’t always exactly in my style and can be downright daunting sometimes, I usually come away feeling like a little bit more of an accomplished artist purely because they’ve forced me from my comfort zone, well at least until the next one comes along!
I had planned to do some step-by-step images to accompany this post but as usual, I got so engrossed in the painting that photography goes straight out of the window. Maybe next time…
If you’d like any further information about commissions then don’t hesitate to contact me
I’ll be exhibiting these paintings and quite a few more at TheOxfordArtFair this weekend, don’t say it too loudly but the weather is looking good so should be a lot of fun! Hopefully see you there.
