Lovely blog about the history of Eel Pie Island (wish there was a better pic of me though):

It’s been a very busy month preparing work for Art District:  a fine art gallery in Amsterdam who have commissioned a series of large paintings 130cm x 130cm. These are loose atmospheric landscapes inspired by Turner and a delight to do. Having been doing finely detailed miniature paintings 10cm x10cm for greeting cards working on a large scale allows grand gestures and require a lot of energy.

The cards are ready to frame and at only £8 ea provide an affordable way to own an original oil painting.

NZ Gothic – Retrospective of Early Paintings

Bonar Creigh Carew - Lee Campbell

Bonar Creigh, Carew – Lee Campbell

Going through some old photos of my early post grad paintings I thought they may resonate with others also raised in rural isolation (Near the Rangatata River in Canterbury, NZ).  Some of the paintings have meanings known only to myself (and my therapist)  but they served me well in laying the ghosts to rest and can now be seen as milestones along the journey, old friends – long gone but fondly remembered.

Prints of some of these images are available from The Bridgeman Art Library:

Kaspar and Clouds

Clouds – nephology or cloud physics

For the last 20 years I have been painting clouds – and can’t be sure exactly why.  I often look to create a timeless quality in my paintings and clouds seem to be one of those timeless things, constantly fluctuating and affecting everything from our mood to our climate. They can be dark and toxic or as light and lacy as white angels with as many shapes as we can possibly imagine. The essentials of the modern nomenclature system for tropospheric clouds (those forming in the lowest major layer of the atmosphere) were proposed by Luke Howard a British manufacturing chemist and an amateur meteorologist with broad interests in science, in an 1802 presentation to the Askesian Society. Since 1890, clouds have been classified and illustrated in cloud atlases with most cloud genera divided into species, varieties, or both, based on specific physical characteristics of the clouds. This was the beginning of a study that allowed artists to understand the basic structures of clouds and since then they have used them in a variety of spectacular ways:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-21034217  Berndnaut Smilde creating actual clouds.

In painting, clouds make a flexible pictorial device which can be employed to create perspective or suggest wind movement and when naturalism is no longer an issue the clouds can be any colour or shape that the artist can imagine. My personal favourite naturalistic cloud painting is by Vermeer:

Can you identify these painted clouds?

Some amazing cloud phenomena:
