OIL PAINTING

Starting in May 2016 my paintings began with a number of tasks; could I paint a cloud, the sea, a beach, plants etc.

I’ve tried to vary the subjects just to see what suits me.  Landscapes, seascapes, people, animals.  I seem to be leaning towards famous people.  These really have to be right.  

The paintings that are dry have now received their first varnishing and they really ‘pop’ with the gloss finish.  You can’t see it on this website but mounted on a wall they are really lifted by the process. Happy with the results so far.

                 When I moved to       Spain in 2015 I bought a   small apartment which would allow me time to see if Spain was for me.


Now, with my place established in the area of Algorfa I’ve moved to a 3-bedroom house with front and side gardens in Castillo de Montemar, opposite La Finca Golf Resort.


My new home has space to move around in, a room I can use as my studio/office and a terrace garden.


The place was a little ‘tired’, but structurally sound.  The house needed decorating throughout; kitchen and bathroom re-vamps and finally a big clean-up!


After two months I finally moved in and I’m feeling the difference already.   Time to relax and hit the pool!
