The weather this week has been perfect for sitting out and painting the sea. I also found that you can’t do an iPad painting with only 4% of battery left!

Here’s some more of my expressionistic portraits of people. A prize if you guess who anyone is!
I’ve made a painting of our glorious MP, Amber Rudd. I loved the way she was photographed outside number 10 looking both ghoulish and priministerial.

It’s been a funny week with rain, wind, sun and mist. I’ve painted on my iPad each day whatever.
With such a lot going on this week it’s been a relief just to have the discipline of making my iPad paintings.
I’ve been slowly working away that these abstracted expressionistic figures and portraits. I’ve been using household gloss, spray paint, oil paint and oil bars. They’re on a variety of substrates, from stainless steel panels through book covers to a table top.
It’s May. My first to iPad paintings show the long awaited opening of Graze on Grand in St Leonards, and Ed Miliband’s #Ed4pm #Edmiliband visit to Hastings’ Sussex Coast College.
There’s been some lovely weather this week. And some mist.
