J & G Innes in St. Andrews have their Winter Exhibition running from now and into the new year. I have several paintings being shown and one of the paintings (Harbour Reflections, St. Andrews) was selected for their advertising in the December/January 2018-19 issue of Art Mag.
I will be participating in the Winter Exhibition at Eduardo Alessandro Studios. They have a gallery page showing the paintings that I am exhibiting.
It opens on 10th November 2018 and runs until February 2019.
I took the opportunity to get outside and do some outdoor sketching. The weather recently was very favourable, sunny and not too windy. I set up my paints on a picnic bench and spent some time immersed in the scene enjoying the atmosphere.
The Pittenweem Arts Festival 2018 starts on Saturday 4th August and runs until Sunday 12th August. My web site has a page showing some of the paintings I will be exhibiting. See my Pittenweem Arts Festival 2018 page.
It was quite stormy weather for Easter. I did manage to get outside in front of the studio to do some sketching of the waves coming into the shore. It was exhilarating to watch and great to be close to the waves. I had prepared a box of Unison Pastels which were from a new large 72 pastel landscape box. I needed to break them in half as they are much better to use this way. This gives me two smaller boxes, one for the studio and the other for working outside, with all of the 72 pastels in them. See above.
Thanks to everyone who made it along for the Open Studio event, especially those that had to dodge the waves!
For the Easter weekend (Friday March 30th to Monday April 2nd) some of the Pittenweem Artists and Galleries are opening their doors. Gina will be at her studio at 18 West Shore.
I was able to get out and about to do some sketching on the weekend. Weather was windy as often it is at Elie. I think it makes me work quicker about (15 mins) and adds to the atmosphere to the sketch. Over the weekend I managed to get quite a number of sketches done.
Happy Christmas 2017
This small painting was inspired by the winter light in the harbour at Pittenweem. The red boat has been in the harbour for a while and I think it makes for a great focal point.
Christmas wishes to you and your family.
I am enjoying being able to have much more time on the West Shore in Pittenweem. The views here are inspiring in all weathers, I got a nice day for this sketch.
The Pittenweem Arts Festival 2017 starts on Saturday 5th August and runs until Sunday 13th August. My web site has a page showing some of the paintings I will be exhibiting. See my Pittenweem Arts Festival 2017 page.
