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.

Nothing to lose

During the last three weeks and with the help of three models, I have been desperately trying to re-invent my passion as a painter and to break new ground. 

After a lifetime of painting, fertile new ground isn’t easy to find.  I keep telling myself to be more daring, to take more chances, to break down more barriers.  After all, I’ve nothing to lose.

Yesterday, with the help of my model Naomi and working on my largest sheet of water color paper, I took courage and threw down washes regardless.  

Today’s picture shows that, at last, I am getting there!
