Art Galleries

Hi there, long time no see/talk. I’ve been working hard on my new art shop, I’ve decided to leave the US-based gallery DailyPaintWorks.com and join ArtGallery.co.uk. It’s been great, I made a few sales, but the costs involved are better used towards my own website. So, here you go, if you’re interested in any of […]

Self-portrait

Self-portrait

Update: ‘Self-portrait’ is one of DPW Facebook picks of the day! I have always been reluctant about painting self-portraits. I don’t know, it feels too personal and being shy does not help.

Ridgeway

Ridgeway

The scene was inspired by a family walk along the Ridgeway in the Chiltern Hills. At first glance, this oil on board shows a couple of people walking on a grass path. The image projects a feel of everyday life, of a journey together in a safe place surrounded by the sanctuary of nature, a […]

Cumbrian Forest

Cumbrian Forest

Update: ‘Cumbrian Forest’ is one of DPW Facebook picks of the day! This is a little study of a tree and how it connects with its surroundings. I took this photo a few years back in the North of England in the Lake District (Cumbria). I love how the light filters through the canopies and […]

Weather Front

Weather Front

An early morning walk near Weston Turville inspired this little painting. The foggy weather front is replaced by the blue sky. This is a reworked painting I wasn’t satisfied with, the contrast between the lower-key values at the bottom of the painting and the sky seems to work better now.

Cloud Study

Cloud Study

My favourite subject, clouds. I really enjoyed working on this little painting! Inspired by a photo taken a few months ago, I applied a first tonal layer over a board stained with some burnt sienna followed by some quick free brush marks for the highlights and “details” using a filbert. Enjoy!

College Lake I

College Lake I

Another painting inspired by College Lake near Pitstone in the Aylesbury Vale district of Buckinghamshire, a nearby nature reserve set in an old chalk quarry. The site is a sanctuary for more than a thousand species of wildlife on the lake, marshland and grassland. Here rare species of birds nest on the islands in the […]

The illusion of volume using tonality. This was a very challenging exercise in how to handle paint, shape, halftones etc.
