A Few Paintings

This post is not about photographs but about painting.
I've been a keen painter ever since I was a child, I studied Art at GCSE, A Level and at university too. 
For the past 5 years I have taken part in Severn Vale Art Trail (I also designed the logo and design the booklet each year). I've always exhibited photographs and nothing else. But this year I decided to show some of my paintings along side my fine art photos. They are all oils and with 2 exceptions I have used a palette knife. I'm a sucker for thick thick paint and splodges! I hope you like them.

  1. At the bottom of the post under the "Resources" heading
    I listed that the sofas were from Plush Sofas (an Australian chain store).
    Our living room is really tiny (it looks bigger in the photos!) so they are compact little two seaters.
    We got them as floor stock so they were a great price.
