I’m currently working hard in my home studio during the lockdown. Unfortunately, I can’t access the studio in Barnet that I use as this is locked. I’m currently painting some seascapes and coastal subjects in oils, but while waiting for the paint to dry, I’m working on some subjects using designers gouache.
Inspired by vector skylines I’ve created a number of fantasy abstracted skylines, surrounded by Levantine, Turkish and Asian derived patterns.
