‘08.41 London Bridge’, oil on primed postcard
Today I’ve been covering a new blank canvas, well, postcard, with another in my series of commuter rain paintings. I’ve been working on the series on and off for a year now – the first piece was submitted to the Twitter Art Exhibition in 2015 in Norway, and one of the latest ones has been submitted to the the same show in New York, with exhibition coming up at the end of March.
I love to listen to podcasts while I’m painting, especially the Savvy Painter podcasts. Antrese has introduced me to so many new artists and ideas while I’ve been putting paint to paper or canvas. One such artist was Carol Marine, over at Daily Paint Works. Carol is part of the daily painting movement and has a fab book on just that subject which I’m really enjoying reading. Now, I can’t paint every day, I commute 3 days and have two little girls, so I paint when I can, which is at least once a week, if not more.
This latest painting, whilst part of my existing London rainy day commute series, has been painted today, especially for the Daily Paint Work’s weekly challenge, which I was delighted to discover was ‘the rainy day challenge’. I couldn’t resist.
The collection is building. Drop me a line if you’re interested in having your own little raincloud in your very own home!
