She unplugged and instantly felt better — acrylic on canvas, 405 x 505 mm, 2019. Available.

She unplugged and instantly felt better — Drawing Room mock-up
Everything Centred Around a Single Day — acrylic on canvas (Drawing Room mock-up), 405 x 405 mm, 2018. Available.
I’ve been experimenting with my six-word stories again. Several months ago I created a couple of small mixed media versions by transferring printed words onto painted canvases.

Supermoon at Twilight — acrylic on canvas, 305 x 405 mm, 2018. Available.

The work-in-progress images (below) show i) work on the composition (mainly tweaking the city silhouette) and ii) changes to the underpainting colours prior to adding the final layers. Go, moon, go!
