An artist and a writer…

Stuart is the other half of Working our way, and he will be expressing the trip through images rather than words. Stuart is a painter – he’s recently taken a break from commissions to work full-time, but you can find some of his portraiture and still life paintings, here.

Whilst Stuart’s preference has always been oils, oils aren’t the most travel friendly. The trip will be a chance for Stuart to do some more direct painting. The method he used while painting with oils was much more labour-intensive,¬†whereas watercolour is instant – it’s direct, it’s fluid; it’s messy. He’s been trying it out pre-trip and here’s a sample of what’s to come:
