At least we had a summer this year...that is until we had our holiday on The Llyn Peninsula, fortunately I like painting atmospheric scenes. Here are a few sketches I completed during my few days away. I am not saying it rained all the time but I think the sketches speak for themselves!
I will be working on some paintings of the area throughout the autumn and winter.
My big painting of Stunning Staithes that I showed the developmental stages of before the summer sold shortly after I delivered it to Staithes Gallery.
Many years ago when I was a student in Hull I did a series of paintings around the Land of Green Ginger (no idea where they are now). I was wandering around the old industrial area of Sheffield and was struck by the similarities of the two places which inspired me to produce this painting of this old building in Kelham Island, Sheffield.
so, what next....well I have many plans, an exhibition next year with other artists from 'The North' a gallery in Scarborough requesting some of my work and an exhibition next year, as well as Open Studios and supplying work to four other galleries...plenty to keep me busy over autumn and winter.
On my easel now?
Staithes, of course
