|Pebbles Pastel (44cm x 50cm)|
There's nothing like the looming deadline of an exhibition to clear the head and inspire me to create some new pieces of work. I've always liked painting rocks, they're passive, they don't move much and unlike portrait painters I don't need to build a relationship with them. Rock dosen't react to me and I can get on with the job in hand. The hazards are few, apart from curious holidaymakers, sniffing dogs and an incoming tide!
