UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL! – Open Studio 1st and 2nd December …I’ve been really enjoying the paint with my recent self portraits but I’ve been working without my glasses (as I would generally outside) so it’s interesting for me to now zoom in close and see how the paint is sitting.

San Vincente de la Barquera rocks on the beach with Eucalyptus trees.

The great outcrop of rocks on this amazing #surfersbeach – from the other direction … simple yet complex colours…and hazy spray afternoon light with the typical and tall eucalyptus tree shapes on the shore. Interesting to paint the sand markings of footprints and pitch lines.

Fabulous Art Materials for my Adventure!

Anyone joining me on my trip? I’ve spent the last couple of days packing up for an adventure. About 4 years ago I made my first wet painting carrier from a design shared by the great #pleinair artist I follow @marc_dalessio and I have just repeated the plan (slightly adapted) in a larger scale. I attended a fabulous course by him in 2016 at #TheWelshAcademyArt. I also had a lovely delivery from @jacksons_art to go with my @moleskine sketchbooks and favourite @winsorandnewton #drawingink and #oilpaint . I will be trying out some @jacksons_art #linenboards , #watercolours and @rosemarybrushes for the first time. I am taking the same @seawhiteofbrighton sketchbook that my #royalsocietyofmarineartists entry came from! (So excited to be heading to @mallgalleries later in the Autumn …..I’m very random in how my sketchbooks get filled up!) really looking forward to getting off later today. Who’s coming too?

Different day…

A very different day here…no visitors…no excuse to eat cake!….as I have been updating my website following on from Hampshire Open Studios. However I realised too that I’ve never blogged this …and it’s much less fattening!

I have fresh work available and news about my teaching which is booking fast so DON’T DELAY! kimwhitby.com @st_barbe.org.uk

I’m looking forward to a campervan adventure starting Friday and then new teaching, with #SketchesAndSips starting last Fridays of the month! 7-9pm See my teaching page for details kimwhitby.com

Goodbye and Thank you Hampshire Open Studios 2018….see you in St Barbe?

And so it’s time to turn off the lovely “Georgian- ish blue glass” daylight bulbs, take down the ribbons and call time on #hampshireopenstudios 2018!

An exhausting week for me as I had so many truly interesting – and well informed – visitors to keep me on my toes. A real pleasure to talk with you all and welcome you into my space. Thank you for taking the time to to come and see my work. 🙏

I look forward to renewing my acquaintance with you all in November!

In the few quiet moments during the event I have had a chance to explore sharing my work (with those who couldn’t make it in person) in a virtual way; online and in #timelapse . The time lapses have proved popular – so here is a short clip from a real time video. Which do you prefer?

BOOKING NOW – at St Barbe Gallery and Museum in Lymington (New Forest) for my 5 week Watercolour and Ink course which starts in mid Sept. DON’T MISS OUT! Kim Whitby BEd Hons MA

https://stbarbe-museum.org.uk

Also give me 2 or 3 days and my teaching at home will be online – I am especially looking forward to #SketchesAndSips last Fridays of the month!

Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition selection.

Something from much earlier in the year – a barge in Topsham. These two pages from my cartridge sketchbook were the result of a whole batch of other drawings over a couple of days in ink – I just couldn’t seem to capture the bulk of the hull. This was my last attempt and I’m very pleased that it will be hanging on the wall in The Mall Galleries as part of the Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition in September. 😊

Can hardly believe this is really part my life!

Can you believe it? Pinch me please…..It really struck me yesterday as I updated my bio etc, ready for Open Studios, how amazing it is to work in the same building as these fabulous artists …let alone appear as a fellow tutor! Thank you @ArtAcademy and especially #taishanscheirenberg

Over the M27 on the footpath and very soon you are in beautiful rural #Hampshire. I was after the downwards facing fan of stubble in the far field, and the upwards facing fan of nettle plants…..but this is how it came out.

Tried out my new @CassArt titanium white too…seems v good!

#HampshireOpenStudios #FirstDay #PVTour

All ready for my first day of @hantsopenstudios in #Fareham. Looking forward to meeting everyone….in fact I met a few yesterday (while I was setting up) who arrived early in error….one an amazing lady of 92 who gained her Art BA at the age of 74!Don’t worry if you are a little more ordinary than that – all welcome!

#Athens #Greece #pleinair work of the #Acropolis #Parthenon #TempleOfZeus #watercolour #sketchbook #AncientAgoraOfAthens

Some recent quick #Athens #Greece #pleinair work of the #Acropolis #Parthenon #TempleOfZeus #watercolour #sketchbook #AncientAgoraOfAthens made during our lovely holiday to an amazing place. It was really challenging to work in such hot dry conditions in watercolour and difficult to do justice to the fabulous setting and its history. The colours from the sun were really complex to represent especially on the marble rock formations, and the vegetation too took a while to colour match. Anyone who would like to see these in real life – why not pop along to #hampshireopenstudios over #bankholidayweekend in #fareham 😉

Another evening painting of stocks but there were only mixed colours to be had in the shops; so this time pink and white!

Today was Pintar Rapido…the plein air art competition on the Kings Rd in Chelsea Town Hall. I worked besides Sloane Gardens and later the Saatchi Gallery. Hello to all the nice people I met. Hope to see you tomorrow for the exhibition 12-5.30pm!! Until then…goodnight I’m shattered!

 #Hampshire #OpenStudios #August I collected my brochures today for @hampshire_open_studios I am really pleased to be taking part in this event for my third year…although my openings will be limited to the Bank Holiday weekend…I am really looking forward to meeting you and showing you all my stuff! Things from #Chawton @JaneAustenHouse earlier this year and #LandscapeArtistOfTheYear 2016- last year our Summer was really hectic with lots of secret filming #LAOTY at the same time as HOS!! So I am taking things at a slower pace this year….and even having a little holiday with my husband too! 🏛☀️See you in August 😉

Well – this really is the end of the commission posts. Here are some small versions of the six selected peices- I will let you know if the intended merchandising is realized incorporating them!

All that remains to say is what a special and unique experience it was to work and create in such an influential place….Jane Austen has been my favourite writer since my A levels many years ago. So you can imagine what a great honour it was to be invited to work there. 

Many thanks to Hampshire Cultural Trust, Jane Austen’s House Museum and all the lovely staff and volunteers at Chawton. ❤️

I will be opening my studio as part of Hampshire Open Studios in Fareham on August 26,27,28th if you would like to see some of the peices and sketchbooks in real life. All welcome

February 28th 2017

The last chilly trips to Jane Austen House Museum, with the review and selection from my time here by Hampshire Cultural Trust and the museum in partnership. 

I spread all my things out in the education room ….and a few weeks later a final selection of six works was made. These are intended as merchandising starting points….let you know next week what was selected!

#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 🙂

#e exhibition Link to the drawing prize finalists.

I hope that this link will take you to Oriel Ynys Môn site to view the entries (and some very poor photographs of my entries)….better still why not visit the whole exhibition in beautiful North Wales in person. It’s open until February next year but please check opening times before you set off. 

Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize @OrielYnyMon Great to receive my invitation for the 11th! 

  

Three of my ink drawings are in the mix, and I am looking forward to taking part in this exhibition in Anglesey, Wales, which celebrates and promotes, the importance of drawing. Looking forward to meeting the other exhibitors and seeing their work 🙂

Last day tomorrow @hantsopenstudios 

 

Well here’s my ‘transformed’ garage space which has doubled as a gallery and studio during Hampshire Open Studios, as I generally work outdoors. It’s your last chance to visit spaces tomorrow with most locations open 10-5pm. 

Thank you again to my customers and I will be in contact individually about your pieces in the following day or two. 

Please keep in touch, all my visitors who have asked me about teaching, or pop along and meet me if you would like to join a group, use me with an existing group or are thinking about individual tuition. So far drawing, ink work and colour appear popular topics. Additionally lots of interest in a life drawing group without tuition, on a shared cost basis. 

Good to meet all who have visited. Thanks for popping in!

Open Studios tomorrow #HantsOpenStudios @ VisitHampshire @NatMuseum RN

 

Well I think I’m about ready. Looking forward to meeting my visitors starting at 10am tomorrow. 

I enjoy explaining about my work and as an experienced teacher, from Infants upwards (to Undergraduate level) I would love to see any other artists too, of any age! Look forward to meeting you over the next week or so.
