New York Shadows

I took these photos on the street of New York recently, sort of by accident, had camera in my hand being the tourist and snapped three of them unbeknownst to myself. Have to say I really like them!


I was recently looking at some older pieces from 2014 and kept getting drawn back to these two.... CLick on them for a larger image

I'm often asked how I paint. An answer to which is a very expansive!!So in keeping it brief I thought I'd show you an image of various stages of a painting. These are not all the stages, but they should give you an idea of the process in which I add layers of paint. Just click on the image for a bigger version.
