One other reason I've been quiet is that I've been fairly productive, over the last couple of months I've been focussing more on my non Doctor Who artwork. I went through a period of throwing ideas together and looking at a variety artists work. I joined Pinterest and I've been using it as a quick way of creating a wall of images, a virtual one, this helped stick artists together whose work I might not always have compared to each other. This helped churn up some thoughts and I began experimenting with things. Some of which are on going. Now you might think being productive would be good for blogging but I'm very much a final piece person. I prefer to show things when they are finished. I'm quite the solitary figure and there is something to be said about a constant one to one dialogue with something you have created. Feedback can be great, but sometimes its not. Sometimes feedback is better once you've finished and can be applied to the melting pot of the next painting. So a daily update of how I've changed the tiniest bit of a drawing or glazed a bit of colour doesnt really go hand in hand with my working practice.
However I've managed to complete a few things recently. You'll have to forgive some of the images, my studio can be a terrible place to take a photo of my work. On a gloomy day (which seem to be almost endless) the light is terrible. Most of the following is either finished or close to being finished. With the sunflower painting being the newest piece and thusly the furthest from completion.
