Finishing Monet's Painting

I'm very happy to release this month's new online workshop and demo video at http://www.livepaintinglessons.com/workshop41.php

This has taken quite some study and I found it exciting to follow Monet's footsteps through Venice (virtually), discovering the history there and to be…

Mural Painting

Painted this Mural on the climbing wall at Ruakaka Primary School earlier this year. The concept is adapted from Van Gogh's Starry Night. "Reach for the Stars Kids" is the inscription. My biggest painting yet. Painted in a day with large speed brushes. Good…

That's the second image you can see there - much better cow, no? The next day (yesterday) I showed the painting to my painting buddy John Crump and he…

When it's good it's amazing, when it's bad it's really bad, but at least it brings with it the hope of more snow which makes everything that much more paintable. Got a sore neck at the moment. I think it's from twisting around all the time to see the views here. There's quite literally a painting around every corner.

Painting Southern Light

Had a day to spend in town today so took my paints with me, set up early and painted this beautiful old concrete boat in the Whangarei Town Basin. Apparently it was used in the movie 'mutiny on the bounty' years ago. I loved the shape and the…
