Ham Art Group Autumn Exhibition 2011

I'm starting to get myself organised for my next exhibition. I enjoy this exhibition as I can get involved in the actual setting up, I love putting out all the work submitted by the group and arranging them into an exhibition, we never know what's going to be submitted and how it will work together, but some how it always does!

Tropical waterlilies I and II, now finished

Here are my finished tropical waterlilies. Finished just in time to dry for my exhibition next month. Both painting are an attempt to capture the illumination of the lilies petals in the fantastic light of the glass house in Kew Gardens, and the reflections in the lily pond. 

My next project below is another A4 paper based project, I'll probably use gouache and pastel pencil. It's a section of the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. I've already painted this bridge in oils, that painting was about the sunshine on the walls and the reflections in the windows. This composition has great shadows, cast from the shutters.
