Love's Sinking in the Sand

 Finished university for the year, back to the seaside and warm beaches. I'm loving the tunes from Little Dragon and being home once again.

My encyclopedia of paint

A gathering of my creations from the latter half of this year. Most of these are small works on canvas paper. I find the best way to work through ideas is to just paint and experiment and not get to tied up on any one thing. 

Into everything

Oil on plywood.

Alla prima

These are my life model paintings from this semester. I'm an impatient painter, so wet on wet suits me best. I love the impulsive nature of alla prima. Sometimes the organic, involuntary brush stroke is more complex and intuitive than a thought out plan.
