I am fond of puns and Jeux des mots.

This is a small oil is only about A5 size

Here’s a cute young padawan.

I’ve always thought there was something more to this business of padawans calling their  teacher ‘master’.....

Irish Tower

I occasionally paint landscapes in watercolour and some elements often find their way into my constructed landscapes in other paintings.

This tower is near Waterford in southern Ireland. I painted on a short holiday there many years ago.

It has turned up in several paintings to date, including  Bodies in Motion and Metamorphosis

Until next time

Once I am certain that the painting is dry, I will begin to glaze in green over all the areas painted in Indian Red and will glaze the flesh tones over the parts of the figures painted in green.

Until next time
