iPhone : Today’s walk was along Otley Chevin. Fun fact, Turner used the Chevin as background for his painting of Hannibal crossing the alps. Here is Simba doing his best impression of an elephant

iPhone : Fekin awful train journey from Leeds to Wolverhampton - took nearly five hours - not a happy camper especially when you consider it is only a distance of 90 miles as the crow flies.

iPhone : I was going to complete the private eye crossword but having spent the last two hours waiting on a train platform I cannot be arsed. What’s your excuse ?

iPhone : Painfully slow progress on my #romainebrooks copy . Building up very thin layers - however the payoff is worth it as the painting is really beginning to pop out #ampainting #paintinginprogress #wipart

Twitter Web App : I havent done a giveaway for a while, so follow me and/or RT this tweet, and Ill send one of these #caricature print proofs to a randomly selected winner. Ill announce on around British lunchtime on Friday, 9th October. GO!

iPhone : Further progress on my #keesvandongen copy of the violinist. I am finding the #proarte miniature brushes to be extremely useful especially the 5’ brush . #ampainting #paintinginprogress #wipart

iPhone : Interesting tidbit from #1914 #Germany in the early stages of the #fww , i should note, the earlier pages covered #panicbuying ; here the #ConspiracyTheory of the day is golden cars being driven across the Rhineland by the french to fund the Tsar. #ww1

iPhone : As this was a #studypainting I started to sand it down earlier this week. However picked it up again as I am really liking this saturated palette and want to understand it more #matahari #ampainting #portraitpainting #wipart
