I am really pleased to announce that I have been selected to exhibit in the Open Exhibition for the Society of Graphic Fine Art, Draw 19. I created a drawing specifically for this exhibition and took inspiration from a unplanned photoshoot that I did earlier this year on Cannock Chase. My selected drawing, ‘Waiting’, is based on a similar area to my watercolour, ‘Frozen Earth’ and captures a very quiet and frosty scene in the forest. I’m looking forward to seeing the show in London and meeting the other artists.
I have just completed another woodland painting which I have called 'Clearcut'. This is part of series of work that looks at the interaction between people and nature. Changes in the urban environment are usually quite apparent but in nature change is not so apparent. Yet in my recent woodland series you can see a direct and dramatic change to the landscape made by people. Upon finding these changes it is noticeable how quiet the forest has become once again with only traces of the interaction left behind. 'Clearcut' can be found in the woodland section this painting.
Last Thursday I enjoyed looking at the current New English Art Club annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. I was pleased to have my painting, 'The Shack' included this year which is a piece that has proved popular with quite a few people.
I am pleased to announce that my recent painting, 'The Shack', has been accepted into the New English Art Club Annual Exhibition. London shows are always very competitive so I'm really pleased to have got in. The show runs from the 15th to the 23rd June. Visit the NEAC website for details.
In other news my current painting is going very well and I feel that it displays a development in my technique. The current collection is based around the interaction between people and nature.
