new work: monochrome portraits

I have painted monochrome portraits and figures for many years now..... using just black was my way into painting with gouache. It was a good way in because it taught me so much about the flexibility of the paint, how gouache can be both subtle and dense.

Here are two of a new series of monochrome portraits. Each measures 16cm x 14cm.

There will be at least three portraits in my shop tomorrow - when I update at the now usual time of 7pm (UK time).

And some colour for you: here is blue skies cottage. I painted this last weekend when the weather was just so splendid, fit for a fairy tale.....

This work will also be included in my shop tomorrow. There will also be tiny portraits and landscapes.
