"Play it again Sam"

My initial reference did not have figure or piano .
A little artistic license has turned a plain interior into intrigue with a narrative.
I hope you like this composition.

" Sunlight at Pantheon " Rome

The composition may be familiar as I have painted this scene before but in a larger size. 
This exercise was painted on 11" x 15" Arches 140lb paper. Sometimes painting down size can assist in a more fluid appearance, but fiddling can be a temptation. I hope you like this one.

If you would like to see a selection of my paintings please do visit my website.

Something different

It is some while since posting on my blog. Facebook seems to take up more of my social networking time these days. Perhaps I have caught the dreaded bug.

On occasion I like to paint life studies which I find good discipline. I hope to include a small selection in my next postings. In the mean time I hope you find these burlesque ladies interesting.

A trip to Rome

This week I took a trip to Rome to obtain references for my next exhibition in November, taking in as many sights as possible and collecting almost 250 photographs. Whilst there I managed to paint four plein air watercolours. The trip exceeded all my expectations and as given me much inspiration, which I desperately need.
What a wonderful place to visit.
