Experiments: expressive drawing

Following a recent visit to Cornwall, these art works focus on expressive drawing and are abstract landscapes inspired by the remote beaches, coves and cliffs on the north coast. The three mixed media art works are on paper (29.7cm x 42cm).

Towards the mainland: oil painting

I’m now a student at Morley College taking the Advanced Painting Practice course in 2015-16.  “Towards the mainland” is one of my first paintings on the course and is inspired by the view from medieval Korcula Town across the Mediterranean Sea towards Croatia.
