Primaries

Hello! Progressing quietly through January with time to experiment -it’s nice to return to a medium or technique not used for a while. This time, I rediscovered acrylic paint and palette knives, thinking about landscape. It’s been so dark and grey here lately, that I felt the need for colour too – variations on the primaries, red, yellow and blue. Have a great weekend – Here are my paintings:

‘Racing Lines: Le Tour’ nearly there!

Hello! Welcome to a final preview of work that will appear in my exhibition at the Alfred East Art Gallery, Sheep Street, Kettering. (For fans of the Women’s Tour, this was the setting of the finish line for yesterday’s stage – which was wonderful!) My exhibition opens next Saturday, 27th June and if you are able to come between 1pm and 3pm, I will be at the gallery and delighted to welcome you and show you round. Of course, a week later on 4th July, the Tour de France 2015 begins. Personally, I can’t wait – it is such a phenomenal race. If you’ve never seen it before, or are new to procycling, do give it a try – even if you’re not a sports fan, you’ll be reminded just how beautiful France is. This final selection of pictures reflects this by showing some of the landscapes which the race passes through. Roll on July! Here are my drawings:
