Batch Valley, charcoal

Haven’t done any charcoal drawing for a long time. Really enjoyed it, especially using a textured board rather than paper.

Shropshire Open 2019

Both of my entries for the Shropshire Open have been accepted!

The exhibition runs from 24 Sept to 1 Nov at Gallery3 at The Gateway, Shrewsbury. Always an interesting mixture of work by local artists.

Cardingmill Valley, Fog-2

Framed up a final watercolour version of the view up Cardingmill Valley in the fog.  I had done three as preparation for a relief print, simplifying the image each time. The other two are already sold and hopefully this one will be in The Ragleth Gallery in a couple of weeks.

Fern (again)(again)

The image in my last post seems to have got lost along the way so here it is again. And, I’ve been informed that ‘Fern 2′ is a rubbish title and it should be something like’Fern goes for a spin in her new sports car’.

More trees

Created a second version of my ‘Trees at Offas Dyke’ print by re-cutting the original plate and overprinting with a new plate to change the detail on the trees and completely remove the stile. Puts the emphasis on the tree and grass textures.

Just delivered 9 pieces of work to the Ragleth Gallery in Church Stretton!

It’s only been open since July and features lots of good work from local artists working in all sorts of fields. Quickly building a reputation for quality work at reasonable prices.
