Back to Caricatures

Just back from Northumberland, where I was working as a caricaturist at a wedding reception.  A break from the watercolours.  At least with the caricatures I have no pressure.  I can do them standing on my head! 
I have now joined 'The Painting Loft', a fine site!  Looking forward to learning loads!

I called this one 'Memories of Key West Florida', because that's what it is really.  Good times!

Not quite spring yet, but I have been working away at a sunny watercolour painting of Bridget & Niamh from a photograph taken at Key West Florida.  The picture was so full of light, reflected light and atmosphere.  I hope I can do it justice.
I am doing as many paintings as I can at the moment.  My main influences are Marilyn Allis and Jean Haines.  My classical influences are Monet and Renoir.  As soon as the painting is completed I will post its image on here.
