I really can’t make up my mind whether this is finished. It has got to the stage where the temptation is to continue titivating, adding a stroke here or a bit more just there. This can mess up a painting. On balance I think I will let it rest for a few weeks as things…
Yesterday I posted some coloured monoprints of a sketch of a small grove of trees in the wintergarden of the Park. Here is the original drawing and a black and white monoprint taken from it
A few days ago this tree was awash with golden yellow leaves but the recent winds have stripped all but a few off leaving it looking stark among the surrounding shrubs.
What a week! Last weekend we put up our annual recycle exhibition in the Cloudhopper Gallery and held our Wearable Art Fashion show. To my delight later I sold a picture from the gallery and because this left a gap in our display I did another along the same lines called Wabi Sabi Blossom Time….
My walk in the park exhibition is now open and if you live near Bognor Regis why not pop in and have a look.
I know, I should have finished all my exhibition work by now but here I am still at it at 7 in the morning as I’m stewarding in Cloudhopper Gallery all day, take a look at their website: http://www.cloudhoppergallery.co.uk
Having a fight with the hand here, not the easiest to do at the best of times but as I’ve adapted the pose bit and I have to somehow make it look convincing. It is a good job alkyd paints dry in six hours! I’ll try again later.
I have to steward in the Cloudhopper Gallery today but I managed to do an hour on this painting from 7 – 8 this morning.
I have a list in my head of paintings I want to do in connection with Hotham Park. The list is far too long to complete before my looming exhibition but this one I want to finish.
My painting of the Mediterranean Garden in Hotham Park is finished. With only 18 more days to go until my exhibition opens I wondered if would do it, But, I DID IT. Now on to several other projects in the making.
