SEAVIEW There are a few really good digital art programmes out for use with the iPad. Some take quite a bit of learning and lend themselves best to media and advertising projects, accuracy being a key requirement. For pure art, where the tools made available can mimic traditional techniques, I have only found one, and […] Continue reading
It can’t really be seen, but this painting was done on a slub cotton – cloth with little bumpy knobs all over it. Tried to make the flowers stand out and used dots of iridescent pearl paint to add effect. These sort of pieces are a lot of fun to do. The eye flits all […] Continue reading

The palette is very limited, but that need not be a problem as long as there are sufficient light and dark colours to […] Continue reading
There are millions of these little spring baskets around. Lovely gifts for friends or to brighten up a dull porch. The little bulbs look absolutely the best all by themselves, so if I want to paint them, I need to look for the decorative elements in the setting, the ‘real’ is beyond my abilities, even […] Continue reading
