    Bit of Prussian blue and ivory black left over ,, mixed up add a touch of white for a bit of sea practice , very difficult to turn a one dimension into any effect with sea , but it’s all practice

    Starting a small autumnal scene today on an old bit of canvas for a change , it’s a treat to paint on a canvas surface with the tooth of the canvas pulling the paint off the brush


    Back later with a bit more work in progress

    "it will only go in the skip with the rest of em when we move soon ."

    I really hope you're joking Nigel. I'm sure there would be quite a few people who would like to buy your works, especially the paintings of specific locations which might have significance to them.

    For example, I have very fond memories of my times with family in Northumberland and really enjoyed seeing the paintings from your trip there. I would like to own one or two.

    And, a general comment on your work - I think your water and skies are terrific.

    Well glad to report after a very long barren spell I’m pleased to report the last two paintings have sold to different people also one of them has pre ordered 4 seasonal commissions for next year .

    Then something a bit odd happened some one else bought this little one below which is only about 8 by 6 inches then at the same time ordered two more much larger ones with slightly different configurations of the birds ,, oh well that will keep me busy when we come over Sunday for a month out in the issan sticks

    Some quality work you do there Nigel. It surprised me that you do not make more of an effort to monetise your skills. This would surely make more sense that binning your some of your hard work.

    I appreciate that EBay etc could be a waste of time, but have you considered speaking to some local cafes, solicitor’s (reception areas) GP practices etc offering to display your work with prices, giving 25% to business owner and 25% to charity.

    The business would have the advantage of free artwork displayed and be seen to be supporting a local artist.

    It would be good to see your talent get the recognition it deserves.

    Thanks kindly Iceman for suggestions and taking the time to reply .

    unfortunately been there done it many t shirts etc

    uk galleries are flooded with worthless digital crap as I’ve explained before but people will buy that for say 50 which has maybe taken an hour to produce as opposed to 70;for a piece I have worked 2 days on , then hand made a frame another half day etc ,, no mate thanks it’s just not worth the embarrassment of asking people for money ,, I only paint for the pleasure of it , plus I do give to local elderly people for their memories which the do appreciate

    70 sounds cheap as chips mate. I reckon you should double or triple your prices for a start and open your own gallery/cafe.

    Thanks for the encouraging words Wills ,, there is potentially a big change regarding relocation when we get home and hopefully once we are settled I have plans to go down another route via You Tube with a new channel of me in Northumberland , giving some nice little snippets of film , shots and info of many of the local areas of interest , but conveniently each one incorporating me doing a time lapse painting which of course will have some little tags in the description box enabling anyone to purchase them .
    I better mention dear old Marmite gave me a few pointers on Saturday when we had the pleasure of visiting him again
