At the start of this month I had the Private View of my show at Fowey River Gallery – it was a lovely evening and a great success!
I have also completed 20 acrylic paintings for a show at The Mulberry Tree Gallery in Swanage this summer. I wanted it to have a range of methods to create interest and richness, so with this in mind I've started a series of watercolours and sketches to be shown alongside the acrylics.
The revelation is that this change of medium has given me a huge creative injection. I'm having to think in a different way and slow right down and really plan every wash of colour.
The subject matter hasn't changed but the transparency of the paint has added a freshness and delicacy to the images. I'm very excited about it, and I hope my enthusiasm for these new paintings makes for a dynamic exhibition.
