Pleased to say I have an exhibition on at the cafe bar at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries! No poster for it so have made one… I may have thrown caution to the wind a little with the exclamation marks but I regret nothing. Come along if you can and if you can’t at least think of anything you could do to reverse this unfortunate situation…
Just finished this one and hoping to enter it in the derwent drawing prize. It’s a picture of Hospitalfield house in Arbroath or the bit behind it anyway… Took too long and a bit overworked but you live and you learn! (hopefully…). The building has quite a history and this can be seen at www.hospitalfield.org.uk.
Been working on a commission for the good folks at Derwent pencils. They wanted something that would show off their graphic pencil range and I can tell you now that even the 9B put in a helluva shift! It’s another from Bonnydale in glorious Shetland.
This is what’s happening in Studio 8 at the moment. Been looking at Kirkcudbright artist Charles Oppenheimer lately who did a lot of street scenes around here. If I can find the time I’m hoping there will be a set of paintings in a similar vein.
