15" x 22", watercolour, 1997, private collection

After a 15-painting run of local PEC barns (click on the "barnscapes" tag below to see them), I had a hankering to get back into some figurative work, and my next two big paintings fit the bill (one is half finished at "press time").

Going through much of the photo reference I've shot over the decades (hundreds of pictures!), I came across a few shots that I'd painted in watercolours and now would like to try and reinterpret in oils. The photo the above painting is based on (featuring my friend, Kimberley) is one of them (mad sketching and Photoshop compositing are underway).
