Armed Forces Art Society

I’m very happy to say that I was elected a full member of the Armed Forces Art Society late last year.  Ironically, my muse left me at about the same time, and as you can see from the website I haven’t painted for quite a while now.  I’m hoping that my inspiration will return one day, and I’ll pick up a paintbrush again.

Possibly finished; will sleep on it and decide tomorrow.  Need to think of a title as well…

No rain today so got this one done.  The owner thought I was ‘casing the joint’ for a burglary…

I’m wondering if I should be calling this ‘untitled work in VERY slow progress’…

A bit of progress from last night, most of the darkest darks roughly in place.  Enjoying this one so far, it’s nice to work big!

Had a go at another plein air piece today, but rain stopped play (this is Belgium after all).  So thought I would post the block-in I did the other evening.  This is of a marketplace in Pisa, from a photo taken there last year.  I found the perspective quite challenging, especially of those vaulted ceiling arches.  Still not sure if I’ve quite got it right.

A cloudy day but no rain, so managed to get this one painted.  I’ve passed this farm dozens of times on my way to work, about time I made a picture of it.

Painted from just off the road to Soignies on Monday.  It’s been raining non-stop since that evening, so no more plein air since then…
