Back in the studio and I am continuing my experiments converting drawing to sculpture. The first attempt taught me a lot about what not to do, and what might work! and more drawings. I very much enjoy this aspect of my studio practice. Below is a full scale section of a possible sculpture, still adjusting as it is still … Read More

I arrived back in Bangkok on 2nd Dec. in my studio was a large canvas 110×240 cm with a drawing on it ready to be painted.   Little did I know at the time that this painting would take four months to finish.    I certainly learnt a lot about the chameleon-like nature of turquoise and its complex relationship with … Read More

A section of the painting, still a work in progress, the background is a kind of Phthalo turquoise however the blue lines need a second coat.  It’s going to take a few more weeks!

The search goes on, trying to make a painting with blue lines and green background became an obsession. Lots of small paintings that kept getting painted over!

Contemporary in their lively … Read More

I am continuing with my experimental drawings with a view to a 3 dimensional sculptural piece made up of two dimensional planes. The red and green colour squares are to show how each two dimensional plane might interact with the other. You can see, in the first image, how the two planes could overlap. The individual drawings are … Read More

On this trip back to oz, I spent a lot of time looking at trees, and this will feed into my work when I return to my Bankok studio. The last image … Read More
