This picture says it all – probably my busiest Hampshire Open Studios days ever for me yesterday. This is my 6th year. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME. I was too busy hosting to paint!
The flowers were a bit dead yesterday, I wonder if I’ll get anywhere near finishing it today before they completely die, or whether I’ll be wiping the board as a failure. 🤞It’s a failure and I have lots more guests today 😊THIS YEAR I have the option to buy a PRINT of my work if the original out of range. They are pre order-able….so ask me more when you come! ☕️🚽August 18-22nd. 10-5pm NB 11-8pm on 22nd. East Street in Fareham.

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!
So here I am – hot and sweaty after my first day taking part in Pintar Rapido last summer. I’ve just bought my ticket for this year’s competition. See you there too?
Thank you so much Pintar Rapido for this photo – part of my BIG Summer, which culminates by seeing me on TV! as part of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2016.
See my News and Events page on kimwhitby.com for all the details!
Thanks to the Portsmouth News for running this article about my recent activities – entertainingly written in the first person 😊
Here’s an action shot of me making my winning entry to Pintar Rapido in London this weekend. You can watch me work again at Ashcroft Arts Centre during Hampshire Open Studios where I shall be artist in residence. Look forward to meeting you 🙂
AMAZED! I won. Thank you so much to all the team and sponsors!! My large picture in ink won. Windsor and Newton….it was your drawing ink too!!
My first Pintar Rapido under my belt! Lovely dry day here 🙂 I decided to work on paper!
