Local shapes, seasonal colours

1 comment

It’s been a busy few months, what with ‘Ancient Landscapes: New Lines’ in Corsham and the City Arts Newbury exhibitions. I’ve been doing more sketching and ‘small scale’ painting in between the shows: watching the season change and the colours darken into summer. Dare I say it, but Autumn will soon be here and I’m making the most of the rich fields of wheat and bountiful hedgerows around my studio before everything starts to go brown.

I’ve bought some handmade Khadi paper, which is rough and textured and a delight to hold. I’ve been using it with a small tin of watercolours with my trusty oil pastels, of course.

I am a Wiltshire-based landscape artist, working outdoors, come rain or shine. I recently left full time work in order to pursue my life-long ambition of being an artist.
