One day at a time.......

This morning’s class was all about how quickly can you paint and what can you paint in a short amount of time. Based on my painting (image 2) we all did four timed exercises (starting top left, clockwise) 10 mins, 15mins, 3mins and 30mins to paint the boat. These are my examples - good to feel the pressure of a ticking clock to focus the mind! #artclass #artteacher #boats #watercolor #watercolour #aquarelle #painting

It’s always nice to have an art supplies delivery first thing in the morning, kind of sets the agenda for the whole day that I need to get cracking on with commissions. Today’s delivery was a couple of tubes of oil paint and this beautiful bespoke Italian extra fine linen stretched canvas from @jacksons_art. If you’ve never used their online service you’re missing out! I always order these for commissions as they are very high quality. Talking of commissions it seems that 2018 is the year of the commission. I only did a couple of them last year but this year I’ve already completed two, have a five-painting commission in progress and have three booked in for the next two months. And that’s before I hit the market/Cambridge Open Studio season in July when I normally pick up some extra work. So grateful for having this flow of work coming in, as always it’s perfectly timed 🙏 #grateful #camopenstudios #cambscreativetreasures #studiolife #commissions #artist #jacksonsart #commissionart #canvas #blessed

This is the ‘studio’ in our spare room (well, this is half of it. The other half has paintings stored on shelving racks and my guitars and amp). It’s where I create my work, work out what to teach and experiment with different media. It may be small but it’s mine, allll mine....mwah ha ha ha!!!! I’m sharing this as part of the @cambscreativetreasures challenge to share what, where and why we do what we do. #cambscreativetreasures #mystudio #studiolife #artiststudio #artist #cambridgeartist #thefens #artist #paintings

Dropped the others off 7km away with their bikes while I drive in to @wickenfennt to do a surprise spot of painting! Turned out nice again, cuckoo calling, a stout running around near my feet, so many birds singing, and lots of lovely people stopping to chat as I paint.

I’m in an experimental mood today; my Monday morning watercolour class wanted to try a wildlife subject next week, but my usual detailed technique wasn’t cutting it so I’ve tried something completely different. I think it works well to allow them to have a go without worrying about too much detail. What do you think?

So this is me, looking rather forlorn and tired, ready for a busy week in the ‘studio’....prompted by @cambscreativetreasures to share a pic of me and tell you all three random facts about me: 1. I won the Downham Market Festival children’s art competition in 1992 (I’m not as old as I look...) 2. I met wrestling legend Big Daddy for my birthday as a kid (easy, easy...) 3. I used to work as a Structural Technician creating construction drawings, and I bore my family when driving through Cambridge saying ‘did I ever mention I worked on that building?’..... #cambscreativetreasures #thetrove #cambridgeartist #allaboutme #whoareyou #bio #studiolife
