Really enjoying being in the studio working towards these dates this year.
Been a steady weekend of visitors so far. Tuesday 5th July, I’m open at a later time, 5:00pm – 9:00pm. Then Friday 8th July , Saturday 9th July and Sunday 10th July, I’m open 11:00am – 6:30pm. Several pieces have been bought from the walls and from the browser and we can mount and frame them with your choice of mount colours and type of framing. It’s great to be doing Medway Open Studios after the long hiatus, lots of local artists participating again this year.
Just placing at the moment, some canvases needing frames
Tidying up, finishing off, couple of commissions, some nice framing by A. Trinder too
Oils, re-working the second Whitstable Beach using the studies, charcoal drawings and photograph taken on the day. ‘Red Bathampton’ is a bit of a development from watercolour sketchbook pieces…
Think this is at last… almost.. finished… but then… Always really difficult to stop.
Working into these pieces, acrylic and also the larger oil.
Developing the oils a bit, some acrylic work and some loose, fast watercolour no pencil….
Oils based on the Malverns, I think the smaller one is finished but I may tinker. I’m enjoying the smell of oil paint in the studio. I’m exploring some of the different mediums that one can use with oils too.
Sunflowers for #Ukraine all proceeds going to refugee agencies. All of these are framed and sold, all money to DEC Ukraine, thank you.
Update :Paintings have gone to new homes, cards and bookmarks went well too. It’s a lovely little gallery space and so well organised by the group of artists who run it. The postponed #WhitstableOysterFestival was happening on Monday Bank Holiday, crash helmets were the order of the day. Very busy despite grey weather. I really enjoyed talking to friends and visitors to the gallery. If you’re nearby do pop in to say hello to the next exhibitors.
