New paintings for August and some from July..

Summer, such a hectic, busy time here in St Ives, no complaints though, there's been enough sunshine to keep everyone happy!

On the personal news front:
All six of the artworks painted with submission to the annual ING Discerning Eye Exhibition in mind are now at the framer's.  There's still time to enter, click the link to find out more.

The Rotary Club of St Ives popular fundraising exhibition of donated postcard sized art is a high point of the annual St Ives September Festival and my contribution is already in the hands of the organisers.

The ever popular Square Deal Show at St Ives Society of Artists Mariners Gallery is another unmissable September Festival event.  I have my blank canvas, it's unwrapped and a start on it will be made very soon - just need to think about what to paint!

Big and small original paintings....

Had so much fun painting the first two artworks (shown below)
which were prompted by the fear that continual painting in oil on small boards was making my work too tight.

Also, the last two very large commissions in oil on canvas completed last year were a struggle and soooo time consuming, which I have attributed to the lack of speedy, loose gestural under painting in acrylic, which were a feature of earlier large compositions.


'Sea Mist Offshore, Porthmeor'
acrylic on deep edge canvas, 30 x 80 cm.


Beach, Action and Shadow'
 acrylic/acrylic gels on chunky deep edge canvas, 50 x 50 cm.
