Moray Welsh  Cellist exploring painting @ www.cellist-into-painter.com

Another quick still life - a couple of hours, before abandoning it for the weekend. Very unusual to find a leaf on a pear in some prepackaged fruit! #fruit #art #painting #oilpainting #pear #studio #sketch #sketching #pictures #practice #dailyart #leaf #canvas

The Blue Vase - that I picked up at the Columbia Road flower market - a fiver well spent ! #art #pottery #stillife #studio #painting #blue #oilpainting #exhibition #flowervase #colour

And for today’s pic........got these strawbs this morning and only just managed not to eat these ones. #stilllife #art #painting #oilpainting #studio #strawberries #fruit #pictures #food #eat #paint #red #studio #pink #portrait

Should probably give this chap a rest now. What does one call a group of vases - perhaps a potter would call it a “Throw of Vases”. Objects like these are curiously satisfying to paint. They seem to have a conversation with each other. Perhaps I should call it “Stonehenge” thanks to the vaguely circular arrangement. #art #painting #oilpainting #pottery #morandi #stoneware #pots #vase #stilllife #mutedcolors #oil

Posting this again as it mysteriously vanished from my account very soon after posting. ADVANCE WARNING ⚠️ KINGSGATE OPEN STUDIOS June 23rd & 24th. Save the date! An amazing array of the work of all the creators at Kingsgate. A chance to both view and buy original work by a stellar cast of artisan craftspeople #art #craft #painting #pottery #jewellery #materials #wood #furniture #videos #glass #design #kingsgateworkshops #moraywelsh

Memory postcard of a weekend in Amsterdam- wooden tulips, broken tile from 1780 ( 10 euros!) pottery from the Jordaan market etc! Might turn into a painting #amsterdam #tulips #drawing #pencildrawing #sketch #sketchbook #tile #vermeer #memory #postcardsfromtheworld #pottery

Start of a still life inspired of course by Morandi. The challenge is to keep the palette low key and not exaggerate the contrasts. Still room to soften a lot of the hard edges. #art #studio #oilpainting #pottery #figurative #palette #painting #shades #colours #limitedpalette

Near the end with these tulips. Challenging, as the Scottish Colourists did tulips so well in a much flatter style. The leaves were very interesting to paint, with all the different tones. #flowers #tulips #art #painting #stilllife #yellow #pottery #oilpainting #studio #sketch

Still life in progress. Tulips have a very annoying habit of completely rearranging themselves on day two! At least the vase and the tubes of paint stay put. #art #painting #oil #flowers #tulips #sketch #studio #exhibition #allaprima #cellist #yellow #paint #green

Having bought some frames from Howard Hodgkin’s collection in November, I decided to use them in a slightly different way which nonetheless acknowledges his technique of painting over the frame. So here is the first one in progress. My idea is to create the illusion of the plant sitting behind the frame, rather than the picture, so the shadows become an integral part of the illusion. This very heavy frame is made from limed oak and must be quite antique. Hodgkin would have done something totally different with it, so I didn’t want to just copy that. I’m looking forward to doing some other variations on this idea with some of the other frames. The plant decided to wilt after two days so I’ll have to move on to another picture anyway! #art #painting #oilpainting #illusion #trompelœil #frame #studio #plantbased #stilllife #cyclamen #potplant #sketch #pictureoftheday #artwork #originals #artist

Limbering up with a drawing before starting to paint. What you can’t guess from the drawing is the vibrant red of these pears! #drawing #fruit #pencil #graphite #studio #stilllife #sketch #practice #work #composition #painter #cellist
