First daubs 2018

I am not a great believer in New Year resolutions but I do feel the need to start the year as I mean to go on so here are a couple of small oils in development one of which was started on the first of January 2018. As actually starting painting is one of the biggest  hurdles for me (along with finishing of course) I do find it necessary to simply 'do something' , anything almost, good bad or indifferent, simply to get going. I find now that even sketching out with a brush in some dirty old paint from the bottom of the turps jar is enough to set me off .

As ever there are many other paintings at various stages of progress so I hope to continue to post in the near future
