Another recent painting based on a drawing made in the studio of the Nottingham Society of Arts. The two ladies were chatting and enjoying a coffee during a break in our painting session. I couldn’t resist making a painting of them.
I have just sold this painting at the Nottingham Society of Artists on Friar Lane. It’s available to view untill 4pm on Easter Sunday.
One of my favourite views of Swansea Bay. This one looks out from Oystermouth Castle in the autumn towards Mumbles Head and the lighthouse. Often referred to as the Gateway to Gower it’s popularity has never waned since in Victorian times, a railway ran around the bay making it accessible for all.
I have been inspired by my recent visit to Gower on the South Wales Coast. It’s my favourite place to visit as I spent many hours there painting the lovely scenery for the calendars and cards which I published while I lived in Swansea. I am working on another one. I’ll post it soon.
Now that all the planning has been done for the Attenborough, Beeston and Chilwell Art’s Trail, it’s time to get into the studio each day and paint.www.abcarttrail.uk
This Collage is a new work and is now on exhibition at the Nottingham Society of Artists’ Gallery in the Fellows exhibition. The exhibition finishes on Sunday 21st April so you may just have time to see it.
I love drawing on a large scale with charcoal. You have to stand at an easel and act like a proper painter; standing back and lurching forward and waving your arm about. These two drawings arrived when I was doing just that. Classic FM on the radio helps as well.
