This autumn I have returned to an old theme – Battersea Power Station seen from the Pimlico Embankment, but this time in a misty damp evening light – a view I remember well from living in Dolphin Square in the 1990’s and cycling up to Grosvenor Dock along the Embankment. Sir Giles Gilbert Scott was the architect who designed both the iconic phone boxes and Battersea Power Station.

‘The View’ from Richmond Hill made famous by Turner is also featured and I have several versions available ranging in size from 6″ x 6″ to 34″ x 34″.

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

http://www.messynessychic.com/2014/08/21/the-tiny-island-on-the-thames-that-once-held-the-rolling-stones-david-bowie-and-the-uks-largest-hippie-commune/

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.

So sad to see the council executing a row of lovely old chestnut trees along the Twickenham Embankment today to make room for the new development – R.I.P old friends.

The destruction of the trees has inspired me to make a new series of romantic riverside paintings using colours that I haven’t previously. The second one shows the river bank during the November Thames draw off.

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:
