Finished yesterday – this one is of the River Stour, upstream of Dedham Mill.
It doesn’t belong to any particular series, just a view I wanted to paint – while I’m waiting STILL to go to Shingle Street for the next of my On the Edge series. The last few days have been so cold, so wet and so windy . . . .
Other news: Coming up this weekend is Art in the Old Church, at Hall Road, West Bergholt CO6 3DU. I’m putting in four paintings and will be stewarding on Saturday afternoon. There is no charge to get in and refreshments will be available as well as about 180 art works to view – and buy if you feel inclined! Do call in if you are in the area. I think the weather is supposed to brighten up at the weekend . . . . . . . . 🙂
I’ve just finished my next painting in the On the Edge series. Here it is!
I had thought to do quite a close up painting of the Chapel of St Peter, but on reflection it seemed that a view from back up the track gives a much stronger sense of it’s isolation and the presence of the sea just beyond. So that’s what I did!
I’m hoping that my next On the Edge place will be Shingle Street. I saw some lovely photos on Instagram the other day posted by Celia Hart, an artist whom I follow @celiahartartist, and I can’t wait to go! I need a good bright day for it, though, and at the moment it is overcast and cold! Maybe next week . . . . . . 🙂
I’ve been busy mounting some more of my limited edition prints!
At the moment I’ve got four paintings which have been made into prints – Essex Wood: April and Essex Wood: November, Stratford St Mary: Early Summer and Higham: River Brett & the Stour Valley: Summer.
They are mounted in slightly textured cream mounts with backing boards in cellophane display bags. Each one is stamped with this really cool embossing dye and numbered with the edition number – for example the first one of each print was 1/50. There will only be 50 copies of each print – ever.
All four prints are available from the Buckenham Galleries in Southwold. The Essex Wood ones are £65.00 and the other two are £60.
Stratford St Mary and Higham are also available from my website shop – see SHOP on the menu bar above. I can’t offer the Essex Wood ones in my shop as they are too big to post! – but of course if you are local to the Colchester area then do drop me an email and we can sort it out that way!
I am able to get new prints made relatively easily, so if there is a particular painting which you would love to have as a print do email me and let me know!
Getting started on my Bradwell painting today . . . . . . ! 🙂
