July 2017

It's been a busy year for me as a film scenic artist so my own work has been somewhat neglected as there simply hasn't been time. I have managed some as yet incomplete pieces so I thought I would post them here.Looking forward to getting back to easel painting in earnest very soon.

started or finished ?

I have posted some photos of recent work here partly in the hope of some feedback. As far as I am concerned these paintings are in the very early stages, the lay in , the sketch, getting the feel of a new composition. My partner thinks otherwise and has told me not to do any more to them.She likes the immediacy and fresh feel. I really don't know what to think although perhaps a style could develop instead of the usual realistic conclusion that I usually strive for.

This is a more accurate photo in terms of tone.

Summer 2017

I have noticed that many visitors to my site do look at the blog.Sadly they only find a very old post and I feel a little ashamed about that. I do find it difficult, as a one(or2) finger typist, to find the time but I hope I can change that.

Last year my concentration was on painting pictures and the Lanscape Artist competition. This year has so far been mainly taken up with scenic art on films being produced in Budapest so my own painting has been somewhat sidelined.

In August there will be a visit to Transylvania. This is a favorite Plein Air location of mine an I am looking forward to that very much. Hopefully some new paintings will be up on the site later in the month.

If you have been, thanks for reading.
