I run an art school along side being a full time painter so my days very depending the day of the week. I paint 7 days a week, 4 full days and 3 half days. On a full days I would start painting at 11am take lunch at 1pm, back painting from2pm and keep going till 6pm. Start back again at 7pm and keep going till 10pm.
My paintings influence where I go on holidays. I have several great paintings that haven't got to painted yet because I'm waiting on a great photo I haven't taken yet. My holidays are research trips, in China I took 3000 photograph and I did the same in Russia, Turkey etc. This year I have selected Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri and I have already paintings waiting on the photograph.
