Shown here is work from the last 4 or 5 years, after I resumed painting after a long break. I had stored various ideas in my head over the years, which perhaps accounts for the diversity of  these works. Some are sketches, and not what I would regard as paintings. Unfortunately I am not in a position to paint full time, to try to extend or finalise all these ideas.

               Above are three of a series of thirteen 'mood' paintings? based on the barcode image . An exercise in balance, harmony, rhythm and subtleness?

All paintings shown here, unlike those on the Archive page, are not shown in chronological order of execution.

An idea of sizes of the individual works will be added at a later date.

Another 'barcode' painting, with a difference, using colour.

                                     

 

                                                                                                          

 

                                                                A one-off idea or sketch.                                    A little exercise to produce something that could be  hung in any way   

                                                                                                                                                                                and still be balanced. White paint on un-primed board.

 

 

                                                           

                                                             'Triple Vision' No.1                                                                                                                                   'Live's journeys' No. 2

 

 

                                                                                       

                                                   'Triple Vision' No.2 or 'Lino Tiles'

I many cases the colour reproduction, density, saturation and contrast is very poor. Some paintings are very subtle and of light tone. I must find time to take most of the photographs again, and trim them.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As mentioned somewhere on the site, I chose to use black and white for many paintings.

For another series of paintings, as another exercise, I limited myself to using the primary colours.

 

Below are two of these works, which are some of my most recent. Here I have returned to a more painterly and free style. I hope soon to include detailed close-ups of these on the appropriate page.

 

 

                                                                                                                       

                                                                                                                                              PVA and emulsion on paper, bonded to board.

 

                                                                                                                                                                         

                                                                                                                                                      PVA and emulsion on primed board.

 

                                                                                                                 

                                                                                                          Another painting on a similar theme, without colour restrictions, though keeping within a range.

 

                                                                                                                          

                                           The first work based on the primary colour resriction.                                                                                  Another red yellow and blue thing. (Collage on board)

 

                                                         

                                                                                       Work in progress, collage, still using only primary colours.

          Older work:

 

                                                     

                                          'Is there any way out ?''                                                                                                           'Hard-lined serenity'

 

 

There are many more recent paintings to show, but I have to find time to take better photographs of them.

 

 

 

 

 

                     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                               

 

                                                                                        

                                                                                                

                                                                                                                          

 

 

 

 

                                                        

                                                                                                                                                                                                

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                    

 

Better photos of these need to be displayed.
