Well I havent done much painting at all this week..infact only a couple. I have had a good week though and found out that Ive had 3 pictures accepted for Royal Society of British Artists Show at Mall Galleries in March. I ve also found out that Im a finalist for BBC2 show called "Show me the Monet" which will be on TV in March.. so an exciting week...Thats about it hoping I might get out tomorrow to paint..One from today of  a statue outside Buckingham Palace. I think its the busiest place Ive ever painted. I went to London with Chris daynes to collect our RBA rejects and we walked around as much as we painted which was fun.Japanese tourists kept borrowing my brushes to have their photos taken at my was hilarious..hopefully I will be able to post a photo soon

This week

Well this week the weather was awful to say the least. I did get a few paintings done but not been painting well. Stayed in London on thursday and friday to paint with friends and to hand my work into RBA..wont find out if any of it has been accepted until thursday... I hope so, but who knows. Only posted one from the week, perhaps from that you can gauge how bad the rest were :-)

First efforts of 2011!

Well a New Year is here and lets hope its a good one! Havent managed to get alot of painting in since it started but have done 3 in the last few days. The first one was on New years day in Epsom with my ggod friend Tony who I have put in my painting. Im amazed at his progress . Hes only been painting 8 months in oils outside and is better tahn alot of people I know who have been painting years. I will post some of his work shortly and see what if any feed back he gets. The other two are from earlier in the week. The weather is so bad at the moment, wet and cold , it really doesnt make you feel like painting. I thought about going in my studio but thats freezing too..Cant wait for it to warm up. Next week I have a couple of days painting in London which Im looking forward to. Thats it for now.
