New! Seascapes workshop has spaces!

On Saturday 26th April I'm going to be running a one day workshop on painting seascapes using acrylics at the Old Bank Studios in Harwich, Essex.

The day costs £65 and includes all refreshments, a deli lunch and afternoon tea and cake. We will be working from your choice of three of my own seascape photographs and you will have the photos and comprehensive notes to take away with you at the end of the day.

It would be great if you can join me there.

For further information see Old Bank Studios.

Spring 2014

2014 is well underway now and looking to be another busy year with painting trips already planned to France, Morocco and Venice and here in the UK Norfolk, North Yorkshire and of course as much time in Cornwall as I can manage!

I will be exhibiting and demonstrating plein air painting at Patchings art festival from June 5th to 8th so I hope you can come and see me there.

I'm also looking forward very much to my painting weekend in Staithes at the end of June, and there are still a couple of spaces left so act quickly if you'd like to join us for a fantastic weekend of painting and good food and companionship.

My next big solo exhibition will be taking place at the Barn gallery, at Patchings art centre near Nottingham, from 4th October to 23rd November so in the meantime I'll be working very hard to produce great new paintings for then!

 

The colour of light - new exhibition and portraits

My solo exhibition in Nottingham in January was a huge success with over 700 visitors and 30 paintings sold. Thank you to everyone who managed to come over and support me and huge thanks to all of you who collect my paintings and enable me to keep on doing what I love to do!

I painted an oil portrait from life each day during ten days of the exhibition which was very enjoyable for all - thank you to all my sitters!
