This is a piece that I started maybe a year ago! I finally made time to finish it off. I suppose it fits in my colour field drawings but it has a closer connection to my Tidelines work
I have been pleased with the quality of visitors to my Open Studios this weekend. Most people have displayed a keen interest in my work and I’ve enjoyed meeting new people and talking about art. I’m also pleased that I have sold something each day – including today when I was technically not open! A visitor over the weekend called this morning to say they had decided to by “Outfall 2”, the piece pictured above. It’s quite a special piece for me and I am delighhted it has found an appreciative home.
I have also sold some of the small studies I framed up and another larger piece, “You Were Born And So You’re Free”
Yesterday on my #Letter365 blog I said
If you want pictures of fluffy things, portraits, realism, impressionism, boats on water and that kind of thing I’m generally not your man.
So the devil in me thought I should make my #arteachday post on Twitter should be a line and wash sketchbook entry of the coast across Lyme Bay west of West Bay.
This piece from last year was my #arteachday post on Twitter today and created some possible buying interest! If not sold before it willl be available during Dorset Art Weeks at venue 121. it has been framed in my usual style of matt white hand-painted frame float-mounted over polar white card. The piece itself is on Saunders Waterford paper with collaged black paper, scotch tape, watercolour and ink.
Today’s #arteachday post on Twitter was this large “field” drawing. Ask me about the title if you visit me during Dorset Art Weeks!
Today’s #arteachday post on Twitter was this piece from a couple of weeks ago.
I’ve had a difficult day. Busy and demanding for the most part and deteriorating to “challenging” to put it mildly. The biggest culpits were technology and the fact that four of my pieces at the framers in preparation for Dorset Art Weeks have got damaged – one at least irreparably and two other fair-size works I have doubts that they can be returned to their pristine state, So I wait anxiously till tomorrow. I had hoped to work on getting this and my other websites into better shape and uploading mor images, but my time has been eaten by woes!
This dirty little number in my messy style from the messy-style sketchbook was today’s #arteachday post. This one is a probing round the Tidelines project, particularly Shingle Street, though there are also elements of Cuckmere haven I am exploring in it. More to come!
I hope I am a little nearer to being able to produce decent images of my larger work after my experiments today. Then I can start to get some galleries on this site.
