Happy New Year everyone! I will aim to do more blogging here in 2014, and I start with a commission. I started this during my exhibition last week, it's of a local celebrity Andy Barrett. Andy is the owner of the Belgian Bar in Ramsgate and La Trapiste in Canterbury and he's quite a character. I'm excited to finish this!
I will do a post about the book very soon, which you can buy here http://paulmoyse.com/store/books/heads-and-shoulders-anatomy-of-caricature/

"Heads and Shoulders" the book will be kicking off again VERY SOON with a new approach and new rewards. The physical copy will be £25.00 (was £35.00) and there will be lots of other great rewards to be had for your pledges. I will have an initial funding goal of £10,000 to make an 80 page hardback, with stretch goals to increase the page size and offer other goodies to backers once the goal is reached.
I will update here when it's launched, in the meantime I'm working on lots of new pieces that I'm really excited about; I've even made a page on my website that will be updated every time I finish new artwork. I would love to share them on here, but have to keep them exclusive to backers of the project. You can also subscribe to my newsletter to hear when I launch.

It's also the third piece of mine I have framed myself, using mouldings and cutting the joints with a mitre saw. When you are equipped with the basic tools (a mitre 'saw' rather than the morso 'chopper' that the professionals use), then it is a true battle just to get the mitred joints right, particularly when the moulding is curved. With this piece I'm really pleased with the result.
The reason I've chosen to frame my own work is largely due to my father. He has a great passion for carpentry and is highly practical, I think the older I get the more I find I've inherited from him. Sawing wood is so much fun, almost as much fun as the painting itself.

I thoroughly enjoyed the 1 and a half hours I spent on this. The main thing I enjoyed was the challenge of keeping everything still in the wind, including my brush. There were moments when nature was literally painting for me!
To those who stopped to watch or said good morning as I painted, thank you for making the experience even better!

My palette was Burnt Umber, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red and Titanium White, with a touch of black.
