Only forward

With a clearer head and tidied workspace, I started a fresh painting yesterday. Very happy with it so far- onward.

Need to replenish stock on a few colours…

I’ve also overhauled the online store at Artfinder. There are paintings that haven’t been offered previously, and some new drawings, including colour:

“View” oil on canvas, 40 x40 x3 cm

Having a bit of a tidy up, and gave my Daily Drawings their own drawer. There are  42 sketchbooks so far!

Mist outside and inside the studio today. Exhibition updates soon.

Emotive drawing

Visiting Sheffield today. First a delivery to Cupola Gallery (more exhibition details soon), then Ravilious and Co. exhibition at Millennium Galleries. Some stunning work, and sad personal histories. I attempted a Daily Drawing from a pencil study by Percy Horton. She is Lydia Smith, who was the girlfriend of his best friend, who was killed in the first world war. They later married and were together for many years. The drawing was beautiful and very intense. See it if you can.
