It's been a very busy first month of the year. Painting has been sidelined up until now but life is calming down a little and creative space is appearing again.
I'm pleased to have had one picture accepted by the English Royal Watercolour Society's open exhibition in March. At the same time another picture has been accepted by the Royal Institute for Painters in Watercolour, I suppose it's like waiting for a bus, you wait for ages and two come at once. I will also have four pictures exhibited at Artquake Kyoto - Japan in March.
Painting a picture takes me considerably longer than it used to. As my technique develops I've had to slow down a lot and I feel like I spend a lot of time waiting for things to dry (especially in the winter!).
So in order to make up for my lack of posts, I've decided to start posting works in progress and will hopefully chronicle my particular creative path.
So this below is my latest attempt after some drawing, a few washes and quite a lot of masking fluid.... (it's not finished yet.. there's a long way to go).
