  • Strong, sunlit and just enough information to tell the viewer what this is all about. Perfect.

  • Cheers Thea, Its part of a series of one hour paintings I'm trying. As a result I tend to get just enough information down without fussing. The only trouble is getting myself to stop without adding just that little bit more :-)

  • Nice, cheery watercolour sketch, Steve. Your oil paintings are my favourites, but I find it useful to change medium sometimes, otherwise painting techniques can get very repetitive.

  • Super. Love the colours on the pot and in the shadow, and the way you have treated the leaves. Giving yourself a limited time to complete a composition is so liberating, and often produces the most spontaneous and successful works.

  • Love the mix of colours you've got on the pot Steve. The lights, darks and subtle palette gives us all the information we need.

  • Cheers Fiona, I've been looking at Singer Sargent and Charles Reid trying to get the economy of brush stroke for these one hour studies. Its amazing what those guys do with the paint with so little interference from the brush.
