Dimensions: 29.5cm x 21cm

Get some work done Chris!!!

Here's a work in progress. I've just started a little mini series of watercolours based on where I live, I think I'm going to call it Bingley secrets. The premise is I find interesting compositions in and around the town and then imagine what creatures or people could exist there secretly. I've got two paintings on the go at the moment and possibly planning another four later on.

This piece in terms of colour is unresolved but I think I can pull through if I stick to warm light and cold shadows but that's easier said than done!

Crikey it's been a while since I've blogged!! That's why I don't keep diaries. I'm glad to say I've been very busy this last couple of weeks. After visiting Jane Fielder and her brilliant Bingley Art Gallery (go and check it out if you live near), she's agreed to show one of my paintings 'Foundry Hill' (above). You can buy the original for £150 and if the painting sells hopefully I will be showing more work there.

More recently I've just finished a commission for Management Today magazine. That's my first ever editorial commission WOHOO! It seems practicing digital painting has really paid off and I will be putting the work up when the issue is released in April I believe.
