Here are a couple of typical 'workouts' for a commission I will be doing soon. I do these in soluble pen first to sketch the composition and experiment with formats ie portrait, landscape, squeare etc, then dissolve the line with w/colours and play around with exaggerated and imaginative colourschemes. It's a low risk factor - it's only a sketch so more room to be creative, take chances and 'what if's'! Then select the best ( in this case the client will choose thorugh I already know which one I like best!) and do the painting in the agreed size, medium etc....watch this space for the decision and the finished article...

Well my fingers are twitchy for pastels as I am just back from our Tuscan Dream alias daughter's wedding, and feel so desperate to paint some Tuscan scenes now instead of Glencoe and Skye! So spent the day carefully going through my sketchbook and sorting out a few new painting subjects for new work...watch this space....I LOVE Tuscany!!!
