#ThankYou @pintarrapiodo #WinsorAndNewton @Aandlmagazine #Wales #calm

  
Thank you so very much for all the kind words and likes and retweets and good wishes…I am in beautiful rural Wales on a long booked painting course. This is the view from my campsite. I will check my messages again later. But now I must fly…..thank you all again. Really can’t believe it properly X

Fabulous red-pink traffic lights here at the junction in Lee. A view I see often as I come back with our dogs but this time at evening light. I also like the poles breaking up the space in the sky. Maybe an addition to my Spice Island Art Trail show? 

#London #ArtFair #February #MisChwefror @ParallaxArtFair

  
Well it’s all admin here! Preparing for the Parallax Art Fair in February and some online applications for competitions. Also yesterday planning and preparing for a lovely commission. I’m itching to get some art made really. When I’m rich I will have someone to do all this for me… I hate this sort of organisation.

Check out the News and Events page on my website for more details about the Art Fair and contact me if I don’t have your details to invite you in person. All visitors need a ticket to attend. I will add a link online soon 🙂

Singer Sargent at the National Portrait Gallery in London. 

  

Yesterday I was very lucky to see the Sargent exhibition in the National Portrait Gallery. This sketch was much smaller than I had imagined it – only having seen it reproduced in a book. It contained a great deal of sand which must have been incorporated, as it was made on the beach. 

I had a great time looking at Sargent’s use of paint, and thoroughly recommend the exhibition if you get the chance. 

Chichester – Pallant House Galley and John Piper.

I went to Chichester today. Visited the Pallant House Gallery and saw Piper had used wax crayon on his ink drawings, and visited the Ox Market where there was a fab print exhibition. Bought a new brush in the art shop in town and now I’m trying out both techniques.

PS. Don’t have wax crayon so I used a tea light candle.

Here is a link to an article about my work on HMS Victory this Summer, why not take a peek…..

NB they are having a few issues with my images on some formats eg iPhones, which should be sorted out soon.
