August has been a quiet month in terms of painting – mostly been away and starting to sort and the studio. Anyone want a lot of pen nibs for drawing?
Sorting the studio means finding unexpected items like a lot of oil crayons and a sketch sent to my grandmother from a Scottish artist Nancy Graham, plus far too many pencils and pencil crayons. And too many tables.
All in preparation for the Somerset Open Studios: I will be at Venue 159, The Studio at Batcombe Lodge working alongside Moxi Lovegrove.
I will be working on a few unfinished painting such as this one of a ruined tower interior at Berry Pomeroy, Totnes. I started it for an Art Demonstration last year and I think the group would like to see it finally finished! It is gouache on paper. I will show the process of my paintings from the first idea, research and various stages to completion.
There will be drop-in mini workshops too in colour and composition using geometric shapes and coloured paper!!
