This is a stencil I created for Subversive Art course. It was to be a pattern for air brushing on a Tshirt.
This painting was inspired by a video still called Bulbs. It's approximately 2'x2.5' on board. It has one layer of cadmium red glaze and I'd like to add 2 or 3 more layers of glaze.

2009 painting

Here are a few paintings I did in May/June 2009. Unfortunately the flash distorts them and I didn't get a straight on shot. I'll try again later and get a better image. The darker shot is closer to the real colour.
I used Ross Bleckner as a style for the first 3 paintings. The first 2 are canvas, 16"x20"
Little did I know it was going to take a very long time for the glaze to dry. Each painting still needs more layers of glaze so it's not the finished product.

This painting is on canvas, 11"x14"
The image is from a photo I took at Derby Reach. it was done as a macro shot.

sky over France

This is Skyscape on canvas 3'x4'. The image is from a photo I took flying over farms outside of Paris. I manipulated it in photoshop to reduce colour (the darker area). It looks very surreal. Again it isn't straight on and the flash distorts the colour.
