Prosaic: Generous

Delighted to be a part of this exhibition. Full details on Art Rabbit.

Up to date

A few things to talk about this week. Painting progress in the studio. I took part in the “Draw Someone” Hospital Rooms Digital Art School with Dryden Goodwin. Brilliant to be able to watch him create a portrait and hear his insights and experiences

Latest  group exhibitions: Secret Postcard Show at Cupola Gallery, Sheffield which I was lucky enough to be able to see last weekend, and Prosaic: GenerousProsaic: Generous at Globe Arts, Slaithwaite, which I will visit this week.
(Please check opening before travelling due to Covid19 ).

Coming Soon

Made some more progress on the painting today. Added Purple Lake, Prussian Blue and Zinc White to the palette. Happier with the modelling now, particularly the angle of the pose and the play of highlights.

Current exhibitions:

The Secret Postcard Show at Cupola Gallery Sheffield is on now until 3 October. The show is a fundraiser for urgent repairs to the gallery, with over 900 contributions to choose from! Including some from me, but of course I can’t tell you which, you have to discover the secret for yourself. If you can’t visit, find out more at Cupola website

Prosaic: Generous is an exhibition of paintings running 21 September – 31 October at Globe Arts in Slaithwaite. The definition of painting is ‘pigment on substrate’, and will cover a wide variety of media, methods and subject matter. Follow the Prosaic: Generous event page on Facebook for more details

Setting off

Starting off on a new painting. This is part of a new series inspired by different source material. Happy with the underpainting, which is in Burnt Umber and a thin wash of Pthalo Turquoise in the negative spaces.


Also happy with the previous painting in it’s new pairing with a painting from a few years ago. They bring out the colours in one another.


Finally some exhibition news: I’m delighted to be in a group show with Prosaic next month. Full details soon.

Arrival

Very hot in the studio these past few days. Pleased to have completed the painting, titled ‘Arrival’. I will have some exhibition news for you very soon too. Enjoy the weather and stay safe.

Next Stop

More progress on the painting today. I feel it’s starting to come together…

This coming Wednesday is Artwalk Wakefield online. Join me on Instagram between 5 and 9pm. There will be prints.

Keep Going

Had a bit of a frustrating day on the painting today. Now I look at it again, I’m happier. Sometimes a painting needs to have big changes to improve. Next stage will be to relocate the eye. I hope to be back in the studio to have more to show you soon.

Warming up

Had a couple of studio sessions this weekend. It’s been very warm- more like July, and the new colours added include some warmer ones: Titanium White, Zinc White,   Chromium Yellow and  Burnt Umber. And some intense ones: Ultramarine, Prussian Blue, Phthalo Blue.

I’ll have some exhibition news for you soon. Stay safe and thanks for reading.

Back in the Studio

Very happy to be able to be back in the studio working on a new painting this weekend. The photos show the underpainting stages: Cobalt Turquoise Light (a new addition to my palette), Winsor Lemon, Purple Lake, Prussian Blue. I hope to have some exhibition news for you soon.
