The Creative Process!

Through a series of work in progress photos for each painting listed below, I describe step by step how I create my art, including tips and techniques for achieving a good result. I talk about which materials I use and why, as well as the benefits and disadvantages of these materials. I discuss various points where things have gone wrong in my paintings, and how I rectified these problems in the finished product. For more work in progress demonstrations - see my blog
