A view west, Antônio Carlos

A view west, Antônio Carlos, oil on card, 14 x 18 cm




This is the first time I have been painting on the continent since my return from New York. Petrol prices have risen appreciably, discouraging me from travelling too far.

The picture is perhaps a little cramped. I have been pinching ideas about spacial organisation from William Gillies, an artist of extremely variable quality.

Extremely hot.

View from my window, Trindade

View from my window, Trindade, oil on card, 11 x 13 cm





As the view from here is fascinating, I shall do a run of these, It's too hot to go out painting, anyway.

I am finding working again on a little postcard size very pleasing again. It is to do with the way the small size makes every brushstroke important.

Praia Mole, December 4, 2015, oil on card, 18.5 x 24.5 cm







The first painting since my return from New York. 


The weather has been difficult, and I've been in the process of moving flat.

 Hopefully now I am more settled into my new place,  I shall be able to get back into the rhythm.
