Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Street sketched while sitting on a bench waiting for my dearest (not literally!) wife Liz browsing in the local John Lewis. The rains came just as I was finishing off the penwork so the watercolour was added in our cosy little home later. The original is hopefully by now in the U.S. on it's way to my top collector in Texas.
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)
I've always had in my mind to do a proper full width Panorama of the right bank of the River Esk at Whitby Harbour in pen & watercolour. Here it is (another adulterated version) - 600mm wide and the pristine version will be at the "10 Artists & 10 Paintings Exhibition" at Baslow on Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd October.
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!
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
Quirico - Tuscany - Italy
One more London Travel Poster. This drawing is of St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square adjacent to the National Gallery. I'm off soon to help set up our Exhibition at Gallery 35, Chapel Walk in Sheffield City Centre open 11th- 16th August!
Next!! Sheffield on the hill - looking up Pond Hill..... stage 1, the pen drawing.
A very fast sketchette of the Alambra in Granada from the Mirador in front of the Church of San Nicholas across a very steep and narrow valley. It had to be a very quick sketch - friends were waiting. I perched myself astride (like on a horse) a low stone wall to stop the crowds on the placa pushing me off the wall and down a 20 foot drop to the road below. I met a very nice Spanish lady who had enough English to say she liked my painting - I only had enough Spanish to say grathias!
The Alambra panorama
The nice Spanish Lady.
Due to unforeseen lack of artist talent, had to put my painting of Portofino on hold this evening. Did this sketchette of Matera in Southern Italy to cleanse my mind... and palette!
