Weeping Angel 2

Another in the Weeping Angel series.  There are six in this group and the two posts so far are at the top of the arrangement.

Had this idea of an image behind an eroded mirror. So I picked up a cheap mirror in a charity shop and eroded and aged the back. Then I painted a small oil portrait and placed it behind. Everything was going well until I started to fit it together again. On tightening the holding screw I heard a crack and you can see the result. 
Still I quite like the idea so I may go further with this.

Opi in Dyl’s Hat

Long time no blog. Trouble is it’s quite difficult to blog on an iPad added with the decision to spend my time painting rather than keeping this blog up to date. But hey I’ve got a bit of time. This was exhibited at the RBSA Prize Exhibiton 2018.

Stripes 2

The second in the series, of two, and again I got obsessed with the top to the point that this portrait took far too long to paint with many, many corrections.

Oil on board

19.5 in * 19.5 in

Atonement 2

Having looked at the original for some time I decided to repaint the rose as I felt it was too dark.
