I am one of the little people

The large series of work of 'Little People' paintings started back at the end of 2015. It started as a question. How to mix my illustrative style of painting in oils with my new coastal location on the Isle of Wight?

The early seascapes were more reminiscent of traditional paintings. With their soft tones and recognizable compositions. I felt it had already been done and done well by some of the Isle of Wight's very talented artists. I needed to find my own voice.

My aim was to strip the idea down to its bare essentials. To recognize what interested me and to capture it in a modern and unique way.

Stuck on what to paint? Practice painting your breakfast!

 

My continuing journey to improve my techniques as an artist is fundamentally down to my studies of still life. What better way to study colour, form and tones than to look at the fleshy skin of a vibrant, red tomato. To look at its relation to it's surroundings and to focus on how to adapt it to your chosen medium.

Look around and just simply paint what you see

 

These pieces are studies from the what inspires me, mainly from locations on the Isle of Wight UK, where I now live. 

Since 2015 I switched from painting in acrylics to oils due the restrictive drying time. Once I treated myself that Christmas to a set of Georgian oils by Daler and Rowney... I never looked back.
