It takes a while to regain momentum after a show, but finally I'm picking up speed and planning on exhibiting my new offerings in July 2016. The last show was mostly figurative with this one more landscape focused. I want to create some open less structured works with colour being the driving force. I want big skies and open space, I want the excitement of the colour to drag the viewer deep into the picture revealing more aspects the longer it's viewed. Pretty ambitious but with any luck I can pull it off. Watch this space for updates.
We built the studio on early 2011 and finally its up and running properly.
I have a good amount of space to work in as you can see, although I do tend to work on one easel. The rest of the space I use to place art, so I can look at paintings I am working on and think about where to take them.
I have a long bench next to the easel on which I keep all my paint and tools. It's organised in a way though it may not look like it.
When I paint I listent to music. My pet whippet comes in and sleeps there on the floor, especially in summer when the concrete floor is cool.
