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.

Tearing my hair out…

Today’s picture is of me tearing my hair out at a recent National Trail team meeting.  As these days I can only tear my hair out figuratively, my facial expression suggests that, in order to get my point across, I’ve taken up weeping and wailing instead.

Regardless of an artist’s failing to capture a likeness, the painted or sculpted portrait is kinder to the subject than the flick of the camera shutter.  Take for example my wife and model Denise.  She hates being photographed, but has no qualms about modelling.
