Night Riders
I decided to re-hash a painting I had painted a few times in my workshops I teach, a quiet beach scene. So added two horses running along along it to make it more visual and hopefully more sellable.

Medium: SAA Artists Acrylics
Paper: reused an old acrylic beach scene I painted.
Size: 16" x 20" 
Duration: 10 hours over three days

Background reference: Stu Patterson
Horses References: Vikarus and Skunktail17
Night Horse
Acrylic mono painting painting of a horse silhouette with outlines hi-lighted with white light in a two colour mono tone painting.

Size 16" x 20" (410mm x 510mm) unframed.

Acrylic Study of the Girl with the Pearl Earring
In the art workshops I hold twice weekly, I was going through a series of demonstrating painting some of the old masters. This week was the turn of Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring. I completed this demonstration over two weeks in two three hour workshops. This painting is the end result, I so enjoyed painting this master and at the same time getting an insight into the master painter that Vermeer was. Here then is my finished Vermeer study in acrylics.
Title: Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring
Medium: SAA Artists Acrylics
Paper: pre gessoed stretched canvas
Size: 46cm x 60cm
Duration: 6 hours over two workshops.
