Paintings and studies…

I’ve been painting on some old 7″ vinyl records that I’ve found hanging around the studio. I’ve used them to work out some people who feature in the new paintings I’m working on.

They are all sitting on the casting couch for the time being. I’ll post the final work later under the Paintings section.

Ever wondered what happened to your one half of your Converse boots when you went into the pit when you were 14…or 28? So did I so I pulled this guy out off the panel in Acrylic.

Sketchbook work

Here are some recent sketchbook drawings.

This is for the girl at the party, I hope you find your ‘Ysbryd’. The domino I found in my pocket the next day and I don’t know how it got there. I do remember a few being thrown around. Hooligans.

Pontycymer – the land of angels. This is oil on paper.

At the end of a night I’ll use what paint is left and see what comes out in the sketch book. I have nothing to say about this except those are Mick Jaggers eyes.
