A small, simple painting that was painted over an unsuccessful abstract-ish painting of a sky...the underpainting adds some depth to the piece.

It's been a while since I did a substantial drawing, having been concerned recently more with painting. Here is a large-ish drawing I did today. Just trying to keep my skills up.

This was a painting I did a couple of months ago. I found the photo today on my hard drive & decided to upload it. The wood texture of the plywood shows through in places, which is an effect I like & gives the piece another kind of depth. The black background was added digitally.

This small acrylic painting for the Apocalyptic series was at least partly inspired by seeing some works of the German expressionist Ludwig Meidner years ago...his panoramic scenes of apocalyptic destruction were somewhat undercut by the small physical scale of the paintings...

Another apocalyptic painting in monochrome on cardboard...I like the sepia effect & also the way the corrugation shows through a little. This is a GF Watts-esque allegory of the fragility of the planet...break this one & I'm not buying you a new one...
Eternity and The World, 2012, acrylic on cardboard, 23.5" x 19" approx.

This was a painting from 2004 that I never had a decent photo of until today. Mountains figure quite often in my work, usually as a background element, but occasionally, as here, as the main subject. Mountains are massive and iconic. It's difficult to argue with a mountain.

This is a larger size image repost of a small work done in 2010. I've been doing some Pietà-related work recently with a view to doing a (or some) larger sized pieces.

A new acrylic painting of a woman's head. This one went through quite a number of changes, & I'm still not sure it's done, but here it is:
