KAOS 1 is now closed!

Our Open Studio closed today, great week with lots of work sold and plenty of visitors on the art trail. I really enjoyed the event and look forward to being involved again next year. I sold my oil painting Resplendent, and said goodbye to it today. KAOS have plenty of other exhibitions planned for this year, an exhibition in Southfields,  London is my next event with them, so nose down to the grind stone and get painting!

We're open again!

KAOS 1 is open again for two more days Friday 24th June - 25th June 11-5p.m. I'm hoping for another busy weekend, lots of people were following the art trail around Kingston. It so exciting that people are discovering our local artists.

Ponte Vecchio

Whilst my Sorrento painting dries I got on with my Ponte Vecchio. I continued to use a palette knife, the straight lines and blocks of colours are perfectly suited to it. Perspective has gone mad on this bridge, walls lean in all directions, I guess not surprising as it dates back to medieval times!

More work to my Sorrento painting

Decided to immerse myself in work today, to help distract myself. This morning my eldest son left to go on a school trip to Sussex, he's away all week. He was all smiles so that helped me not freat too much!
So had a further go at this painting. I like some of the reflections that are emerging, but need to work on the details of the chain and rope. I continued to use a palette knife. I'm leaving this now to dry, then I'm going to tighten up some details with a brush.
