We want more pixels- but we want them now!

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!

Okay ready…

Had an interesting email chat with Wonderstreet about easels, they contacted me because of my previous post (still on the easel).  You can read their article here

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.

Small world

Completed the six inch square painting yesterday. Better photo to follow -forgot to recharge my camera, so this is a snap from my phone.  News of the exhibition she’ll be in soon…

A small update

Completed one small painting this week (15 x15cm), and started another. Possibly they might make a pair: will have to wait and see how it turns out.

I’ve a couple of announcements to make soon, in the meantime I can confirm there will be open studios for Artwalk Wakefield – including the reopening of the Prince Albert.
