… and I have yet another show running at the moment, in the now renamed and revamped Gallery Above and Beyond. Last summer I took the train and boat to Shetland, to meet a group of geological enthusiasts. Our aim was to explore sites of interest, however I went with another objective as well – to sketch and paint, naturally.
Infuriatingly, I suffered severe food poisoning before I had had time to achieve much. So, for the first time, I abandoned my principle of working from life and instead worked from photos taken with my mobile.
I really enjoyed the experience: no concerns about the weather, changing light, time restraints and picking the good places, not to mention small biting insects.
The paintings that I created are all exhibited in Gallery Above and Beyond‘s current show, entitled ‘stone stories from planet earth – art and geology side by side’.
The exhibition runs in Linton, Cambridgeshire until May 27. I hope you will have the opportunity to visit. If not, you may like to visit my galleries to see some more of the paintings that are on show and for sale.
