Night time studio time

I've realised that I love to paint at night. When I'm in the mood for it that is. I used to have a studio at home when we lived in the shipping container house so it was always available to me. However I now have to go to the warehouse to my studio if I want to work at night. But the motivation to go has to outlive the evening routine of dinners, baths and bed time stories before I can head out the door. Sometimes plain old tiredness gets me first and I succumb to bed! But on the nights when inspiration bites and pulls me out the door that I'm always very grateful. This week I had a great session finishing off a couple of nearly completed works. 

Finishing off an older small piece...

After a while of trying to keep this painting all blue I have given in and introduced my signature pinks and yellows. Almost immediately it resolved itself!
