Those of you following my Facebook page couldn’t help but notice that I HAVE A NEW STUDIO. This is the (tidy) studio just after I received my custom-made pinboard from Designer Pinboards.

The colour palette I have been using most is permanent rose/quinacrodine violet, naples yellow, yellow ochre, lemon yellow, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and titanium white. Occasionally with a bit of indian red, payne’s grey or pthalo blue thrown in.

I am currently working on a painting of my son which we started with live sittings. He lasted a total of 20 minutes. Keep an eye out for the finished work!
