For this years solo show I have decided to paint some landscapes … something that for some reason I have been avoiding doing for, well years. I don’t sketch, I go right in. Sometimes this flows easily … and to be honest right now it is not flowing quite so easily. And when that happens it is usually a sign that I am too much in my head (admin can do that to you!) and all I need to do is simply get in the car and drive … then I walk about the countryside looking for inspiration, seeping up the earth, wind and the skies, taking photos as I go to help bring back the visuals for when I get back in the studio.
This spring has been a wonderful mix of sunshine and rains, colours and mists … here are a handful of photos that I have taken that are inspiring me in the studio right now …
And here is literally the beginnings of a couple of my landscapes that I have been working on in the studio for some time now … you will see the final version of them in the show at Lyme Regis in June …
I have to admit that if you follow me on Facebook you will get a more regular update of what is going on, with photos almost daily … so do come and join me on there. I will endeavour to attempt to be more regular on here … but please bare with me … there are after all only a set amount of hours in each day!!
So until next time, have a lovely Sunday!
