The above is my second attempt at painting Starry night over ST Ives (which is under the messy black over painting!). After two days of painting and not being happy with the results I will move onto other projects. Like finishing my book and painting a English countryside scene with rolling green hills over this canvas.

This painting of waves has been inspired by Brett Whiteley's Thebes revenge and Hokusai's famous Japanese woodcut print called under the waves.
I like the feeling of these two large waves about to crash down underneath the tranquil starry sky with the full moon. I plan to do a limited edition woodcut print of this image in the near future.
This painting is acrylic on canvas 100 x 100cm.

It has been a while since I have updated my blog. Due to crappy Internet providers so I haven't had the Internet at home for a few weeks and I have also just come back from at nice little holiday in ST Ives Cornwall.
The picture above is of pages drying just below my bedroom ceiling. The book I am creating will be made from a total of 17 woodcut blocks that will make a total of 20 books. So 17 x 20 is a lot of prints to do! and each one has to be as accurate as possible! I love the process of book making and maybe this little book about a boat journey will be a good way to start getting back into it.
I plan to have the book completed by the end of this month.
