The weather at Pittenweem was beautiful. I took the opportunity to do an outdoor sketch then gouache painting. It was sheltered from the wind working in the corner at the cottage. The weather was also so mild that I didn’t need a coat, however everyone passing were all wrapped up. Great to be working outdoors and enjoying the lovely light.
I was walking nearby and a little Wren flew past me and stopped for a moment close to me. It was such a delight that I wanted to share it in a painting.
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and all the best for 2017.
I am excited to share the news that I now have a studio in Pittenweem. This is the Wash House that I have been exhibiting at for the last 14 years. I love the location, it has inspired so many paintings. Looking forward to spending more time in Pittenweem and painting outdoors.
During the Pittenweem Arts Festival my paintings are exhibited in the Wash House and out on the West Shore.
The cottage next to the Wash House gives me a base when working in Pittenweem.
Looking out from the Wash House there is always something interesting to see.
For a number of years I have been doing monotone paintings. I mix black and white oil paint to a limited number of tones usually 4 or 5. I use these to paint my subjects. l love doing these paintings however when I crave more colour I can revert to my full colour palette. My website now has a gallery showing a selection of these paintings, which you can see from the following link http://ginawright.co.uk/monotone.html.
I was recently visiting a friend in Balmerino and decided on my way home to do some sketching.The gardens and grounds of these cottages have always attracted me and they were looking particularly good on this day.
The Pittenweem Arts Festival 2016 starts on Saturday 6th August and runs until Sunday 14th August. My web site has a page showing some of the paintings I will be exhibiting. See my Pittenweem Arts Festival 2016 page.
I have an outlet for my printed work (cards and prints) at J&G Innes in St. Andrews. They have a window display just now showing some of my prints.
I was invited to exhibit at the Summer Collection 2016 at Eduardo Alessandro Studios. The exhibition runs from 2nd July to 20th August.
I am recently back from a great week in the city of Venice. With so much to inspire, you are spoilt for choice. I found a nice quiet spot to sketch and as I was working I was aware that I had a young audience. The two boys were interested in watching my progress, they were visiting from Vienna. They both had an interest in art which was lovely and I hope I inspired them to do some sketching too.
The Pittenweem Arts Festival starts on the 1st August and running until the 9th August. My web site has a page showing some of the paintings I will be exhibiting. See my Pittenweem Arts Festival 2015 page.
