Small painting, 9in x 6in, of haymaking somewhere near The Bridges a few years ago.
Haven’t done any charcoal drawing for a long time. Really enjoyed it, especially using a textured board rather than paper.
In the process of framing at the moment for possible entries into this years Bath Open. A watercolour and a charcoal drawing of tree roots in Batch Valley, All Stretton.
Small oil of Caer Caradoc accepted by Ragleth Gallery, along with the watercolour of Cardingmill Valley and five mounted prints.
Framed the final painting from the series of watercolours I did of Cardingmill Valley in the snow and fog. On its way to the Ragleth Gallery in Church Stretton tomorrow.
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.
Ragleth Gallery in Church Stretton have just sold a ‘Fog, Cardingmill Valley’ print, so I took the opportunity while replacing it to sneak in a couple more.
I am delighted to find that my painting ‘Hanging Pear’ has been accepted by the Bath Society of Artists for their Open Exhibition!
It’s always an interesting exhibition and well worth a visit, 18th May – 29th June, at The Victoria Gallery, right next to Pultney Bridge.
Watercolour of Cardingmill Valley in previous post delivered to Ragleth Gallery in Church Stretton, along with a relief print of the same view.
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.
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’.
Another etching of Fern.
My etching of Fern, our kitten, has been accepted by the Ragleth Gallery in Church Stretton, along with the etching of Ashes Hollow.
Just finished a new etching of an amazing tree in Ashes Hollow on the Long Mynd.
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.
Another version of my watercolour ‘Snow, Cardingmill Valley’ newly framed and on its way to Ragleth Gallery in Church Stretton.
Only had my work in the Ragleth Gallery for a week and they have already sold one of my pieces! A watercolour of Cardingmill Valley in the snow and fog.
Sold another ‘Fog, Cardingmill Valley’ last week and one of the big ‘Offas Dyke’ prints on saturday! The Dotty Dog in Shrewsbury is a lovely gallery and when picking up a cheque, like I did today, it’s very difficult not to spend it straight away on other artists prints.
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.
Working on some small landscapes. 150mm x 200mm.
