This is the second part of this post (the first part is below). This is my the results of my work today. As you will see in this painting the expressionists were more evident. I like to think that this one causes the eyes to dance.

And so the battle continues. I start out in a Pablo state of mind, go into an artistic stupour, and come round a couple of hours later to find a tight finished painting. The battle between the expressionists and realists is being fought in my head and at the moment, the realists appear to be on top. What do you think?

I'm branching out in new directions ( yeah! about time) and want to bring something new to my work. I know at the moment I'm still stuck on trees and things but once I've sorted a looser style out, the subject matter will change too. Right or wrong, good or bad, I have to develop my art and get away from the safety of what I know people have liked and bought in the past. Your comments welcomed and appreciated. Thanks.

I seem to be doing two paintings each day. I'm sure that I could do three or four if I didn't have to spend so much time on Facebook, Google+ and getting side-tracked. I need to find an outlet for my artwork and I'm finding that marketing via social media has so many options that I could follow that it's quite overwhelming.

I'm really pleased with these two #watercolour paintings which I've completed today. I've made some subtle changes to my working process which seems to be working quite nicely. Nothing major, just simple changes like changing the position of my waterpots, changing the inclination of my drawing board and some changes in my brush selection. Still get a sense of panic halfway through but I think I'll always suffer from that.

I'm quite pleased with this painting it does seem to have some redeeming features which I think works well. I used fewer colours from my already reduced palette and just a single large squirrel mop and No 4 rigger. I've been painting for years but the struggle doesn't get any easier. I prefer to start and finish a painting in one session so it needs to be quite a speedy process.
