One of the problems with updating you from the studio is that when I come to see the photos later on my PC, they don’t look very good quality: the colours are muddier and the focus isn’t great. Here are some higher resolution photos of my latest painting (still no title as yet!) and the stages of the painting from today taken with my proper camera. In future I think I’ll wait to use the high quality images before posting- unless you like the immediate approach. (I share photos from the studio on Instagram so you can always see them at vividlyvivowen ) Let me know what you think!
Completed painting: oil on canvas 40 x 40 x 3cm
Underpainting: burnt umber, prussian blue, chrome yellow, alizarin crimson, titanium white
Second layer: continued same day
Happy to have a fresh start today – and my lightweight telescopic easel came in very useful as I had to move several times because of the sun!
In other news, I have some drawings in the Unit 9 group sketchbook project ‘Sketch it Out’ at South Square Gallery, Thornton on now. I don’t have installation photos yet, so here’s a drawing from my visit to The Hepworth Wakefield earlier this week :
The next exhibition to include my paintings is the Original 200 show at Cupola Gallery, Sheffield starting in September. More details on the website exhibitions page. I hope to have more to share soon.
Several things to update you on! Firstly, delighted to see one of my paintings in her beautiful home. (Thanks to Lisa Gray at FLUX exhibition):
Back in the studio today, some more progress:
Exhibitions: some of my drawings are in the Sketch it Out exhibition at South Square Gallery: a project with members of Unit 9 to exchange ideas and techniques by a sketchbook relay.
I’ve had confirmation of acceptance for another exhibition, more details soon.
And to close, here’s the limited time offer from Artfinder
Following on from the popularity of drawings at the last Artwalk Wakefield, I’ve made some drawings available via my Artfinder page:
“Ink drawings reveal a fascination with emotional states, with the help of unwitting accomplices captured from feature films and the television screen: contour lines follow the features into darker shadows.”
As with Daily Drawings, these drawings are made freehand using Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens (indian ink, waterproof, maximum lightfastness) on 150gsm cartridge paper.
Daily Drawings year six continues as usual! Check Flickr for daily updates.
Very pleased to be back in the studio: a bit more progress on the latest painting…

A big thank you to everyone who came to Artwalk Wakefield. Sketchy Snaps was so popular, I ended up drawing all evening, and everyone who came back bought their mini portraits! Here’s me with satisfied customer Tracy, some of my drawings and a photo of a photographer photographing a photographer photographing a photographer taking a portrait photo! It was a fun event and I hope to bring you news of more drawing based events soon… Daily Drawings year six continues as usual.
