It’s been a while, my last post was after I put my work up at the Mall Deli in Clifton Village, well this is the last weekend you can see them there. I’ll be taking them down during the week (Thursday 8th October). Many thanks to the staff there it’s been a pleasure to work with you.
I’m moving from one part of Clifton to another though because I’ve had a painting accepted at the prestigious RWA Open Exhibition. It’s open from the 4th of October until the 29th of November.
The accepted painting is Dusk Tanker.
I’ve done quite a few paintings of shipping over the years. I live on the Severn Estuary downstream from Avonmouth docks which is still a busy industrial port. With hindsight I like low or misty light which closes the tonal range between the ship, sea, land and sky and begins to shift the image towards an abstract composition. not a conscious decision but a pattern that’s emerged. Here are a few more.
I hope you have a great time if you go to either venue.
