Painting frenzy!!

I am really enjoying painting again at the moment! more so than when I was at university all those drunken years ago. I think the main thing, is that I am appreciating it more, I am basically picking up from where I left off which means I still have a lot to do. Not so much about painting as many pictures as possible, but more to do with my own development. There are still some unanswered questions in my work  and I have all the time in the world to explore it. I know that my passion lies with light and dark and with the next couple of pictures I have done just that. The first one is a painting of a window in Morocco at a place called Fes. The light was shining through the restaurant window in the Medina and created light that is so different to the light back home in England.

 The problem I have at the moment is that my painting needs to loosen up a lot more, I know deep down my confidence is steadily building again slow but sure.

The next painting I have completed only this evening is of my daughter Poppy. I had only just recently painted one of my other daughter Olivia, so Poppy was feeling a bit left out.

Again my main focus is on light and dark. I think this is going to be the current theme for the time being, as I am going to create a body of work mainly on figurative stuff. I am also planning on creating a self portrait that I want to enter into a competition from the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
