This blog contains some new images in the Family Photos series, and I expect that each of these photos will generate more paintings. The versions shown here represent initial investigations of the subject. There is a period of getting to know the photos, and then getting beyond them, which in this case hasn’t yet happened. All of these images are relatively small, which is typical of the early stages of the work: 1) Railway station acrylic and pastel 2) Lunch in Switzerland , both in gouache and pastel 8x11in (20×27.5cm). (3) Denis in the car watercolour and watercolour crayon 7x5in (17.5×12.5cm).
