In this place.

Reproductions here are not great, colour and tone are all wrong.
Always find it a pain to try and photograph oil paintings accurately.

This is one of my sister sarah called 
"Don't take me from my bubble".
It's a smaller painting than I would usually do.

  2. Cheers mate.
    The top one is 80x120cm and the one of my sister is 40x60cm.
    Nothing too mad but I've just started work on somethin 190x170cm which i'm pretty excited about.

    Hope all is good with you.

  3. Hi Shane, great work. How long did it take you to paint the large painting? Any chance you'll take photos at different stages? I would love to see your painting process. Your work is very impressive.

  12. Your stuff is brilliant and I especially love the emotion demonstrated in your pieces which is why i have decided to use it as inspiration for my A level art project as my contextual aspect... seen your "In this Place" in the RUA exhibition and it was my favourite piece... So thank you! Becka.

    1. I have chosen to use you again, this time for my dissertation however you are probably inundated with A level art students wanting to 'interview' you for their art dissertation. I am going to pester you and be another one if that's ok with you? I would love to ask you questions about your history, your influences and your pieces if that's ok? But if you think we are all a nightmare then I completely understand..

      Thanks

    2. Becka I'm so sorry I have only just seen your message today. Not sure how I missed it, haven't been on the blog very much recently. You can of course email me any question you have at shaneblountbray@yahoo.co.uk and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

      Sorry again for the slow reply.

  14. Hey, I saw 'In This Place' in the RUA art exhibition, it was my favourite there. I really love the mood created in the painting and the colours used, I could go on, but I'm actually using it for a critical and contextual homework, which has to be in tommorrow, haha. So I have to finish it off, but great work! I love the one of your sister also(:
    (And is the first one a self portrait?)

  15. Hey Katy, thanks for that. Always good to hear someone likes my work! Yeah the RUA one is a self portrait. I know ....I need to start eating more. ha. Hope you got your homework done in time.
    All the best

  16. Man I just want to say that you unbelievable. You have an great talent. And i cant wait to find some time and have a go at a similar style to yours, but just not as good obviously haha. Seen your work at the RUA and since then have been amazed by all of your work. Any new pieces coming out soon ?
    Wanted to say that im planning on using you in my A level art dissertation and if thats ok with you and if so could you give me some answers to some questions ? just simple stuff like your influences, general times spent on a piece of work, Why you chose your poses ect.
