More horses


Not sure if this is finished yet, it’s acrylic on paper and as you can see I have tried to use a watercolour technique on the background. I would be interested to hear opinions on this.

The cold weather has finally caught up with us in East Cork, although we have not had snow like they have in other parts of Ireland and England. I’m sitting in my studio with three heaters going, trying to find inspiration to paint. I really should try to finish some of the 14/15 pictures I have started and am yet to complete.

Watercolour attempt


Another attempt at watercolour, I used an exercise from a watercolour book, which I now can’t find in my incredibly tidy studio. NOT, so I can’t thank the author, when I find the book I will repost with her name.

I added a few touches of my own and I am reasonably happy with it, but I can see where I can make plenty of improvements.

Happy New Year

A small bit after the event, but a Happy New Year to everyone and I hope all your dreams come true, or at least some of them!




“SAM” Acrylic on paper.

This is not the first painting of 2013 but nearly…I finished it over Christmas. This is Sam, a really friendly horse belonging to a friend of mine, unfortunately he is getting old and has problems with one of his back legs, so he has been retired to West Cork.
