Essex Wood: September – getting started!

By Sally Pudney on 10th October 2016

Yes, that is ‘Essex Wood: September’ . . . and I am only just starting!


Following the two great weekends of Open Studios there was a swift change of tack. Hospital visits, scans and tests – and I’ve spent the last week trying to get going again after a general anaesthetic . . .

So it was really nice to get out in my studio on this lovely sunny morning, and make a very late start on this painting, even if it was only for half an hour! I’m just really glad I actually made my September visit to the wood during the week between my two Open Studio weekends, so I have the drawings and photos that I need.

A few lovely exhibitions on locally at the moment, which I am hoping to get to see, and which I recommend if you are in the area.

The Geedon Gallery’s Autumn Exhibition is on until Sunday 16th October, (then by appointment until 15th December), open daily from 11 – 5.30. Margaret Glass PS MP is amongst the artists showing, and I always really admire her beautiful pastels.

James Dodds is showing paintings, linocuts and oak panels at the Haylett’s Gallery in Maldon until Saturday, 15th October. It is open from Tuesday – Saturday, 10 – 5.

And Dale Devereux Barker is amongst four printmakers exhibiting at The Sentinel Gallery in Wivenhoe until 30th October, open Wednesday – Sunday 10 – 5.

I don’t think I’ve wished all you lovely readers a happy October yet! So. . .  Happy October! 🙂
