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.

From 1538 to the day before yesterday

The first painting is Titian’s “Venus of Urbino” and the second, my painting from the day before yesterday.  There have been many changes in the course of five hundred years but the beauty of the nude remains.

Out of all the possible ways of depicting the female nude, the reclining nude is my favorite.  And the same goes for my models, for what better way is there for day-dreaming through a sultry afternoon.
