Ripe Figs

There comes a time in the year when fruit appeals to me as a subject, late summer. There's a simplicity to painting still life, a modest subject can really allow you to explore colour subtleties. These ripe figs were begging to be cut open and captured. Two slightly different ways of painting here, in the second I'm trying to dissect up the painting surface into more graphic shapes, something I think pushed me forwards with subsequent work. The upper piece sold quickly but the 'figs in a bowl' are still available.  39x32cm (framed), oil on board ..read more

During recent months I've been pushing my painting style in a more graphic direction and while painting landscapes, switching my focus from obvious scenes, towards the abstracted and textural. Above are two reflected canopy scenes from Blean Woods, bringing the canopy above into the composition. I loved how I was able to use the reflections to describe the scene in much more depth.  I painted these for a submission into a group show, both oil on canvas at 42x30cm. Available for purchase here unframed.  ..read more

Studies from 2020/21

When preparing for my recent show, which was so rudely interrupted by coved, I made quite a few one day paintings that were intended to occupy a kind of study corner in the show, a little nook where the style was loose and experimental. Things that were just in my line of sight on a daily basis that I felt drawn to. If you look at anything long enough, and study it with fresh eyes, there's great beauty to be captured, even the presence of a spray can, a mass produced object. Varying levels of success here, all in oils, and on board. I feel the orchid painting has something about it that's wort ..read more

Whitstable- late Autumn sky

 This painting is based on an epic sky from late autumn 2020. Off the back of some plain air work I was doing at the time, I developed a real desire to expand on photos I'd taken. Here, taking a standard format shot of a sky over Sheppey and expanding it out into more of a panoramic. I'm using the mixer brushes in photoshop quite heavily here, this is a delightful way to work when you get the settings just right. I think even though it's digital, my mark making still has some umph to it. Large image painted at 600x600mm To be printed in Gicle' paper ideally. Late Autumn sky 2020. Phill H ..read more

Plein air- adaptations.

 In August 2020 I booked an exhibition space in Whitstable for March 2021, rather optimistically, considering we were looking like entering a second wave of the pandemic here in the UK. When trying to figure out what I was going to produce for the show, I started taking some trips out with the sketchbook while the weather was still holding. I felt driven under the circumstances to take every opportunity to connect with the outdoors after being cooped up for months and to bring those little escapes into my work. I made it up until mid October before my sketch days turned into 'take the cam ..read more

Creative reset

Out for a walk this evening, taking in the Whitstable sea air and marvelling at the rich and crisp sunset, I began to think about my blog. This page. An aspect of my creative practice that I've allowed to become neglected in recent years. Several years ago, I cleared much of this pages' content and purged everything I thought was unworthy of publication, or not representative of who I am as an artists now. I opted instead for the easy and ubiquitous instagram. Although the mighty insta' clearly has it's upsides,  the sheer number of people you can reach instantly being the main one. But I ..read more
