Royal Motel

Well, here is the last painting of 2012, "Royal Motel". I took a photograph of it in San Francisco some years ago and decided to try a more colourful way of painting it influenced by the work of William Wray, Stephen Magsig and other artists that I admire. I think that this approach may suit my ongoing series of paintings set in my home town, Brighton UK. Oil on board 12" x 12".

Merry Christmas everybody! I finished this painting on Christmas Eve so I though that I would post it today. It is of a superball vending machine on Brighton seafront and actually took three days to paint as the balls took some time to get right. 12" x 12" oil on board.

High Over Madurai

High Over Madurai
At last I have finally started painting after a two month gap due to ill health. This was just something to get me back into the swing of things again and is very unlikely to sell due to the subject matter having such limited appeal but at least I am back painting again! This is a view from the rooftop restaurant of the Madurai Residency Hotel of Madurai in Tamil Nadu, South India. It had a large reddish neon sign that lit all the buildings nearest to the hotel with a nearby mosque lit by strong green lights so I based the painting around red and green. 12" x 12" oil on board.

Normal Service To Be Renewed

Grovelling apologies to anybody that follows my blog as they would have noticed that I have not posted anything for a couple of months. I had to curtail my trip to India in October and rush back to the UK and went straight from Gatwick to the Brighton A & E with a difficult bladder condition. There has then followed five weeks of pain and discomfort before having a minor operation last Friday that hopefully will sort things out. I hope to start a small London painting tomorrow which of course I will post when it is finished.
