I really enjoyed curating my work for my summer exhibition at my studio and seeing it hung on the wall. Thanks to those who came and supported me it was great to see you 🙂 Below are some photos I took of my work over the weekend.
My Exhibition is over and taken down now, so it’s an Ideal time to develop a new technique. As an artist, new techniques are not often planned, they tend to just happen with experimentation, so just start painting and go with it!
These are works in progress.
This piece has had a healthy coating of homemade Gesso (over an old piece of work I didn’t want anymore) and then I just started applying paint. You can just see that the Gesso has started cracking where it was applied thick and which I think will add something to the finished piece.
This large canvas has been primed with Gesso and then I’ve applied a base colour before beginning to work the painting
This is the picture shown at the top on this page which has be worked into further.
So watch this space for progress! 🙂
I’ve been enjoying this weeks card making before the last Fakenham Makers Market before the summer break. All made with original art, as you know, I do like hands on messy stuff!
As my regular followers know, I’ve been doing some intuitive panting workshops for relaxation and mindfulness. These are to give an opportunity to escape the rat race of life and focus on the pleasures of intuitive painting. Here are some photos of the latest workshop to show what’s been done. My next workshop is on Saturday 10th November 10 am – 12 noon.
It was my first workshop today and it went very well. The purpose purely to switch off from our every day responsibilities and enjoy a time to paint! I’m looking forward to the next one which is on 7th October. 🙂
