  1. Nicholas, thanks so much for following me and placing a link from your blog to mine. Your paintings are delicate and evocative, delightful. Do you ever use oil colours or do you prefer acrylic? I only ask because personally I like the way one can layer with transparent glazes in oil, I think that technique would suit your painting.

    • Sally, thank you so much for your very kind comment! Currently I use graphite, coloured pencil and watersoluble neocolour2 crayons, which I really like, but you have a good point and I will at some stage look at using oil glazes. The problem at the moment is I nolonger have a dedicated studio space, so I have to be careful not to be too messy!!!! Best wishes, Nicholas. BTW in your post you talk about geometry, order and control and I think your latest two pieces capture that. In my past non referential abstract work I naturally gravitated to something similar, so I understand entirely. Some of my favourite painters are similar, Hugonin and Sean Scully particularly perhaps.
