Gerald Shepherd: Paintings From Childhood Photographs

At the same time as I was working on the set of A4 pictures I highlighted in my last post I also completed this set of three works.  Two are derived from photographs taken from my bedroom window in the house I spent the latter part of my childhood in – the first part was spent in a run down thatched tied cottage in a remote hillside hamlet (the happiest days of my life!).  The second house was in a modern housing estate albeit still out in the countryside.  The third painting was based on a photo from a train carriage window travelling at speed towards London Waterloo.

Gerald Shepherd: Recent A4 Landscapes

As one of the main paper sizes I have produced huge numbers of A4 drawings but up to now very few A4 easel paintings.  As I accidentally bought some A4 frames I decided to produce what turned out to be a set of eight pictures – all landscapes.

These paintings are all based on photographs I have taken, mostly from a bus travelling through the Wiltshire countryside between Salisbury Plain and the Marlborough Downs.  They are painted in oils on acrylic primed cut panels.
