My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.

From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.

My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

Making a start…

Today’s pictures show the beginning of the bas-relief that I am now working on.  First, a sketch of my subject and then, the sketch enlarged and transferred to a 18" x 30" tablet of clay. 

The sketch turned up during last week’s sort out.  As a painting, in my eyes it failed, but as the subject for my bas-relief it may work well.  The next step is to differentiate the highs from the lows.  At first glance, this appears easy, whereas in fact it can be quite a challenge.
