Good news at Camp Samuel, as I am going to have a solo exhibition next March! This means lots of work however on my current Little Tern project, as the venue holds 40 or so pictures, currently I seem to be selling them as soon as they’re painted!
Hard at work creating a body of work sketching on site, so that I have plenty to work on in the studio in the Autumn after the birds have migrated. Currently going more monochrome as you can see by the above, not feeling so brightly coloured at the moment. Painted the puffins after an inspiring visit to South Stack on Anglesey, where the birds nest in clefts in the rock rather than burrows because the topsoil is so thin.
However also did this as part of my Senegal series. For the finished exhibition, I’m intending there to be a huge contrast between the brightly coloured Senegal paintings (a country of vivid red earth and sharp lighting) and the subdued North Wales ones (more subtle beach and pebble hues!). That’s the plan anyway! The above is 8 feet tall painted on board, I love to work large when I get the opportunity!
