La Spiaggia a Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre.

This is one of the beaches in Riomaggiore as you turn left by the harbour.  its only access is a narrow pathway carved out of rock which brings you to a very hot and stony beach! Both an uncomfortable painting and sunbathing spot, I suppose you have to suffer if you need a suntan or a painting. Painted out of season in November there were less tourists but still the sun was quite hot.

I painted this oil on canvas a couple of years ago when my daughter was 18 months old. It was based on sketches and observation as she played around me in the studio, her hair and skin tones were important to me.

Still Life Paintings from 2008 – 2013

Below are a series of still life paintings that I did in the studio during 2008-2013. Those were the days when I could leave things untouched on a table to paint because now I share my ‘studio’ with a hurricane called Two Small Monsters! Although the mess on the ground does make for some inspiring compositions its a matter of time to capture it, you have to be quick.
