It's Halloween. I've drawn/painted Whitby Abbey many times but I've never seen Dracula nor been bitten by a vampire - but there again I do eat a lot of garlic! This year I thought I should join in the occasion and post a collection of my Whitby Abbey artwork.
Here is the list of my paintings for the "Ten Artists Exhibition" at Baslow Village Hall tomorrow and Sunday. The weather forecast is good for tomorrow and not bad on Sunday - come and see us, the other 9 Artists are much better than me.
Ready! My 10 paintings for the "Ten Artists Exhibition" at Baslow Village Hall this coming weekend. Just have to get together all the prints and cards I've produced.... then relax (until Saturday)
This is my painting of a view to the north east from my studio/workroom rooflight in Ringinglow Village with a smidgen of artistic license - a doctored version again to protect the innocent! The pristine version of this painting will be at the "10 Artists Exhibition" (and 10 paintings by each artist) at Baslow Village Hall on Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd October. This is my 10th and final painting for the Exhibition. It's Mayfield Valley in south west of our great city of Sheffield. The building in the centre of the painting covered with red Virginia creeper is Fulwood Hall.
Another for the Exhibition at Baslow on 22nd & 23rd October. This one's from my Sheffield Canal Basin Series - it's inspired by the Terminal Warehouse and colourful canal boats ie. it's completely made up!
This is my painting of a corner of Whitby Harbour on the left bank of the Esk with a lot of artistic license - a doctored version again to protect the innocent! The pristine version will be at the "10 Artists & 10 Paintings Exhibition" at Baslow Village Hall on Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd October.
Still practising my seascapes.
Walking back along the sands from Sandsend to Whitby after my usual crab sandwich feast, spotted 2 gulls appearing to spectate an off-shore yacht race.
A slice of my painting of St Cwyfan's Church off the west coast of Anglesey with a bit of artist's licence - I've reversed a few details!
White Edge Lodge above the Grouse Inn and Froggatt in the Derwent Valley, Derbyshire, very close to Chatsworth House. We pass it twice every week on our way from Sheffield to Calver to enjoy 2 of our beautiful grandchildren. My memory is of the house silhouetted above the moor with a threatening sky - I think I might have overdone the threat! Again, I've faded out the edges of the painting to protect the innocent.
One of my acrylics from the beginning of this month - from sketch idea to finished painting! Done 2 really heavy ones since.
My latest abstract - "Platelets in Blueness" - it's to recognise Queen's 90th birthday and her blue blood.
Two of my artworks on display in Sheffield Winter Gardens, with Heeley Art Club, 2nd-9th April. If you're visiting the Winter Garden, pop into the adjoining Millennium Gallery shop and see a selection of Cards and mounted prints of my Sheffield artwork
Heeley Art Club tonight - the task "working in the style of your chosen artist". Guess mine!
