New Studio

It’s been a labour of love making my new shed / studio. It’ll remind me of how I managed to do something positive during lockdown as well as giving me a push towards getting back on track with my painting ambitions. I love being a teacher, but I love making art more!

Here are my basic plans. I’m no woodworker but it wanted to make sure that I stuck to a plan.

All that hard work means that I now have an area of my own to paint in, although my wife seems to like it too!

Here’s to many happy hours painting, creating and watching the birds 🙂

More drawings…

I’ve really enjoyed drawing this past week. It’s given me the opportunity to think about new subjects and styles for paintings.

Drawings

I bought some new pencils and watercolours this week. Felt like Christmas coming early! The school break has allowed me to do plenty of drawing rather than teach it, so here are some of the fruits of my labour…
