My show in London may be continuing for another ten days, but work in the studio goes on.
Here's a sneak peak of some work which I was doing today. They're little studies of calendula and honesty, which I grew from seed over the summer in my garden.
I've been experimenting with some new colours for the grounds on my canvasses - cobalt blue and deep violet - and was really please with the way that the paintings turned out.
I find that it's good to work with the same subject in different sizes - you bounce ideas from one canvas to the next, applying what you have learned from one to the next. A different size of canvas means that you have to make different decisions about the types of mark that you make, so makes you reappraise how you are approaching your subject.
