With lockdown now in place you may have limited paint colours available. So why not try an exercise in limiting your palette? I find it really helps to simplify things, to avoid overthinking. All you need to have is a white, a dark colour, warm colour and a cool colour and you are all set to go.

Because of where we are at the moment a lot of things have been cancelled or put on hold for me including a painting trip to Ireland. That didn't stop me still taking the week off work and use that time to get used to being at home but more importantly to dust off the old cellar studio space and paint.

I have had lots going on in October with running workshops, getting work ready for exhibitions and attending courses that Art& kind of crept up on me this year. Thankfully I had been organised enough to get all the paintings off to the framers well in advance - although that in itself confused matters as I'd forgotten which paintings were with them.

There are all sorts of things that influence me when I'm choosing the colours I am going to work with. The influence behind this painting was the planning for one of my workshops where I was wanting to use some contrasting / warm / cold colours for people to experiment with. I was drawn to a number of already mixed greys which is quite unusual for me as I do tend to want to mix my own greys generally but these lilac / blue / greys in this painting really got my attention and have worked so well with the Senellier Chinese Orange.
