2014 was the year of paint, colour and canvas. Hard work, but bloody good fun. I’m mostly pleased with just about everything from this year. Which is high praise indeed from me.

The tentative plan for next year is to play. I want to stick to paint (or colour at least) but try out lots of different surfaces, sizes and techniques to see what happens. I fancy some big chinese Sumi-e ink work which will be a real challenge, and its not colour, but I should be able to work with tone. Maybe dabble in watercolours, but most of all I want to try acrylics on a bunch of different media – wood, home stretched canvas, metal even… who knows. Will be fun finding out.
Last session of the term tonight. I didn’t have a chance to prep any coloured canvasses this time so I tried to get as much proper BG in there as possible.
I won the coveted “Life model takes photograph of painting” award tonight for the very first time! (its taken nigh on 20 years for that to happen…) – Thanks Nina, and good luck with the travelling next year :D

Here are my arts. Please inspect them with your face.
One of those rare sessions tonight where I actually enjoyed painting AND am happy with the results. Clem likes the second one (apparently is a better composition and less fussy) and I am keen on the first.
