Visit to Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny

By , 09/28/2011 10:13 am

Visiting, Impressionist artist, Monet’s garden in Giverny was like a pilgrimage to me. To see one of my favorite artist’s legacy – where he painted some of his most important works. Paintings, such as his water lilly series, that opened to the way to abstraction.

I must admit I did not expect the gardens or the house to live up to all the hype but I am delighted to to say they did! In fact, the gardens were one of our holiday highlights – my wife and my children loved it as much as me.

Anyway here a just a few of the pics I took:

Michelangelo, Raphael and Bernini

By , 03/22/2011 12:35 pm

I have just returned from a fantastic short holiday in Rome where I was humbled and in total awe of the sculptures and paintings by Michelangelo, Raphael and Bernini. Everywhere you look there is unbelievable works of art from the Stanze of Raphael to the Trevi Fountain and of course the Sistine Chapel. After years of admiring Michelangelo’s Pietà from books it was great to see it in real life and even though it is now incased protective glass it still took my breadth away. My only complaint is there is just too much to take in!

Abstract Painting: Explorations of the Mind 2

By , 12/09/2009 10:17 am

This painting is experimental in both technique and subject matter. I have used both acrylic in the early stages building up layers and dribbling paint from a stick at different angles. I then used glazes of oil paint to build up depth, colour and tonal changes. As for the subject – well judge for your self.

Self-portrait

By , 09/23/2009 6:52 am

The private view for the Cambridge Arts Movement self-portrait exhibition at Williams Gallery was great fun and very well received. The range of work from all the different artists is very exciting and many of the visitors were interested in how each artist approached the subject.

And I was very pleased with the very positive feedback I got from fellow artists and visitors. It has given a real drive to do more experimental work.

Have finally completed the first of a new series of paintings titled them ‘Explorations of the Mind’. I have struggled with the title and toyed with Mindscape, Dreamscape and Mind Exploration but they just did not seem right.
