Here is a list of my favourite subjects to paint, with links to my blog posts where I have attempted examples of each category.  No abstracts I'm afraid ;)


Some general portrait posts:
Self Portraits
Creating a Scene
Backgrounds and Clothing

Pencil portraits: I used to to a lot of pencil portraits before I became more confident with paint, usually as gifts for people, here are two posts where I go into some of the process:
Drawing Young Children
Drawing Old Men

Painting family members:  Depending on how well you get along with your family this can either be an opportunity to experiment or a time to be extra careful, either way they are people you know better than anyone else and it can be interesting to try to capture their character.

Painting Children: One of my most recent and finest paintings, it is of a ffriend's child, this post also includes a painting of a close up of my eye.

A Bunch of Grapes
A Glass of Water
Not So Still-life: Running Water
