New pictures to the galleries

Here are some recent new pictures added to the galleries. In Hampshire of course my county of residence. Like most of my work, based in local areas, which I thoroughly enjoy working out the best way to make the picture, methodical in techniques but also leaving an element of instinct on the visionary side, an artistic gesture. The pictures I find are just by exploring looking for elements such as shape, colour, space, texture and form as a basis of composition, regardless of location and disregarding the common conception of a cliché focal point of a famous building or view for example. This way the possibilities are endless, challenging but much more rewarding from a personal and artistic point of view.
