Although I have been updating my website with images of recent work I regret not having posted any fresh news items about my general activities as a painter.
The Covid lockdown has been a problem, restricting my ability to paint en plein air however it has given me a fresh outlook on painting. Recent work has been inspired by knowledge of the locations, some photographic records and sketches made in earlier times. Painting from memory aided by imagination creates new opportunities which I relish.
Also, I have found time to build upon my knowledge of materials and oil painting processes for direct and indirect work. All in all, time very well spent.
From 1st July some of my work will be exhibited in The Gallery at 41 Summer Exhibition at Corfe Castle, Dorset which follows on from a super current online exhibition of David Atkin’s Dorset paintings.
