sorry i haven't been around simonsuch lovely new stuff (my loss)i like your dark works but those water colors are a joy to watch...beautiful job on the portrait...anything you can't paint?
Thanks Rob, well portraits actually, dont look too closely, the crazy brushwork is a veneer that covers a raft of basic inadequacies, give me a building any day, nice simple planes, simple colours, people are unbelievably complex, and vary in colour all over their faces.
Great portrait Simon! Really beautiful work here!
Thanks a lot Robin, love your work too.
Simon, this portrait is really beautifully done and captures that light that young skin absorbs. She is a lovely girl but it is your rendition that makes it an absolutely wonderful painting.
Hi Sheilathanks, I can sort of manage frothy pretty, I am after gravitas, well.. to burrow under the surface of reality, and get across those timeless moments like Hopper, de chirico and that Sheila Vaughn does.
Beautiful work, great site.
So much is said by her expression. I love the muted tones, very wonderful painting.
beautiful work simon, such gentle brush strokes
Beautiful portrait - she is lovely. I enjoyed your watercolours as well. Really nice blog - I'll keep following.
Hi Stephen and Tina, really appreciate the support, its about 10 years since I did my last portrait, I was bored with painting so my wife "commissioned" this portrait, still haven’t been paid though
Hi Rahina Well the brushstrokes, most of what you can see is an overpainting of a straightforward painting with a brush loaded with colour, the reasoning being to paint over everything that looks awkward with a slightly brighter colour.
you make it sound so easy! thanks for that. r.
Lovely portrait Simon. The love you have for her clearly shows through.
I love it :)thanks dad xx
Thanks Carys now tidy your room.
