Stormy Skies

I use a limited palette of burnt sienna, vermillion and ultramarine deep to create this atmospheric piece of stormy skies just after the rain. The dark clouds are just about to disperse - or are they? Caught in the eye of the storm is a little red dinghy.


This is a picture fashioned in the style of David Bellamy. Bellamy is one of the foremost artists to check out when doing anything atmospheric. His paintingPublish Posts of mountains are exquisite. The colours are simply superb.

Back Alley

This is a picture of a back alley in Malacca. My 12 year old student Zhen painted this scene, based on a photograph we took on a hot Sunday afternoon.
