Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

From the Pear Journal, “Two of a Kind” was posted in my first year on RB and has been hidden since then…
I have now retaken the photo and republished as the earlier one was too dark…again I used media that would normally not mix, including watercolour, acrylic, melted wax, and oil sticks…as always the exploration was not only in the combination of media, but in the shapes of the pears and their relationship to the background..
The paper was Proximage, in one of their really large journals…
I protect each page with wax paper punched into the rings and it has worked really well

  • Fruit paintings including more Pears can be viewed HERE

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
