Oil sketches

I have just added some oil sketches to the blog. Look out for the tab at the top of the blog.

Most of my oil sketches are painted in about an hour, sometimes less, so often look unfinished. They are just to get a feel for the place and, backed up by photos, are perfect to work from in the studio with a larger canvas.

As I learned from Ken Howard RA when I had the wonderful opportunity to paint with him in Essaouira, Morocco last year, you can't really spend more than an hour on the spot as the light changes too much to continue. You either move on or load up a blank canvas and start again.

I hope you enjoy looking at them. Here's one of them. Comments welcomed.
