Matts latest painting St George and the Dragon

For a change I thought you might like to see my son Matthew's latest painting, this is his third one that he has done and it is approx 6 ft x 6 ft he works in Acrylics and PVA and is on his final year of his Fine Arts Degree, the first year and a half he made sculptures and then decided to have a go at painting, he does not use a brush and has devised his own technique which the Dean of the University said they have never seen anything like it before and have it now hanging along with his other two paintings which are also huge on the main stairways of the University building so needless to say I am very proud of him and wanted to share his latest with you all. He has called it St George and the Dragon

Old Swinford School Doorway in the snow

This is the old doorway of the Headmasters entrance to the Old Swinford Hospital School This is painted on Arches paper and is a quarter sheet size. I worked from a black and white photocopy of the colour photo and yes I know it looks strange but the snow is only falling across one side of the picture.

This school is only a short way away from where I live and is a beautiful old building and highly thought of in the area
