My weekend studio

For the last two weekends I have managed to get away and stay with my friend, Melanie in Cambridge. She has a little studio flat above her garage where her daughter stays sometimes. I have been able to use it this weekend to paint in and it feels so good to be able to just lock myself away and get on with some work without interruption.


Return to some serious work!

Water 10 x 12 oil/panel

I am back! My friends left last week and although I miss them, I am happy to be able to get back to some serious work. I have so much to do. I did do a little work when they were here, but there is nothing like being able to work without interruption for hours and hours, which is what I am doing now.

I am finding it hard to know when a painting is finished?! Anyone else have this problem? I have a tendency to overwork a piece and not leave all the lovely underpainting nuances… I have tried to leave more in this one.
