Eve of Exhibition

Just returned from hanging my wildlife paintings at Fountains Abbey ready for the start of a weeks show, doors open at 10.00 am tomorrow (Friday). If it is remotely as successful as my first show there I will be delighted. Everyone at Fountains is so welcoming I feel like a football team playing at ‘home’. I intend to set up my mobile studio again because I felt people enjoyed seeing the process of producing finished artwork as much as I enjoyed sharing my thoughts on painting. Just managed to squeeze in a painting of a Mallard duckling thanks to John at Turners Framers in Harrogate who did his usual heroic turn around. The duckling painting is a Gouache and I am currently painting a Grey Wolf in the same medium, I must say I really enjoy the switching of mediums and I feel it gives a freshness I would otherwise lose. This time I have included some pencil drawings which have an appeal of their own.

If you are interested in seeing my latest work I would be delighted to see you at Fountains during the next seven days and remember my exhibition is at the main entrance so no admission fee is required to come and have a chat; I will be delighted to discuss all aspects of my painting.
