Space to Create Auction

I was asked to be involved in Space to Create's 'Transformations Project' which has paired up artists and writers, with the art developing out of a response to a given piece of writing.
Here is my watercolour which was inspired by the notion of the individual as a light standing alone while being intrinsically part of something bigger (well that was my interpretation!)

You can place a bid on this and the others involved in the project by following this link;

Enjoying oil paint

I made a series of studies inspired by the textures of Allan Bank using veils of dilute oil paint. The pigment has granulated beautifully...

Emily Ball Week

Just had a fantastic few days under the watchful eye of Emily who has been taking her unique brand of art mentoring 'on tour'. I gathered a group of unsuspecting artists together at the studios in The Factory Kendal and after a glorious day on location at the National Trust's Allan Bank we were able to convey and distill our responses onto paper and canvas. Time for a nap now...

With thanks to Emily for coming all the way from Brighton to see us and to David Penn for letting us spread out into his studio too...

Didn't we have a lovely time...
