oil on board 18cmx12cm
oil on board 18cmx12cm

These small paintings are done very quickly on the spot, maybe 10 or 15 minutes, and then I don't mess with them in the studio.  I have taken to working on quite strongly coloured grounds.  It gives something for the other colours to bounce off, and sometimes generates interesting combinations that I wouldn't have thought of .   I can exploit those effects in other, larger, pieces.  Again, these are painted within a hundred meters of the house.  It saves time wondering around trying to find a subject - the subject is the painting.
