Large sheet stretched always very exciting, I’m protecting areas as I work very slowly in loose watercolour. Really enjoying this so far
Commission done…. I think
Working from resources and sketchbook then loosely on beautiful Saunders Waterford paper and enjoying the magic of watching paint dry…
Gathering sketches and studies ready to do some watercolours of Bluebell Hill
First full Day 24th August 10:30am onwards…
Setting up at 4:00pm on 23rd but first full day from 10:30am 24th August
Starting some small oils on boards so I can work in the Fishslab Gallery, Whitstable during the exhibition 24th August for a week.
Getting ready for @fishslabgallery #Whitstable on August 23rd for a week.
Things going into frames, it’s been really busy finishing off things so the exhibition will look OK. Sold some large oils as well as some favourites during Medway Open Studios so I have been painting almost every day. Andrew Trinder has been mounting and framing and it’s been full on. I’ve even slept downstairs in the studio…but this was because it was lovely and cool during the mad heatwave…… not painting all night..
Open Studios week
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.
Planning walls for Medway Open Studios in July
Just placing at the moment, some canvases needing frames
Some recent work
Tidying up, finishing off, couple of commissions, some nice framing by A. Trinder too
Work(s) in progress
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…
