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.

In the frenzied heat of the moment, I misquoted my extract from Sheila Hyndman’s poem Daughter of Time.  The second line should read, Hardened by hurricane winds.  The mistake dawned upon me in the middle of the night.  At first light this morning, before the wrath of Sheila rained down upon me, I made the correction.   

Incidentally, the secondary figure in “Version 1” shown yesterday, was based on the above watercolour sketch.  Perhaps the pose is too subtle to be picked up easily in clay.
