Well, the Scottish school summer holidays are almost over, and I am beginning to paint again after spending many weeks having so much fun with my son. I hope you’ve had a good summer too.
My latest exhibition is already on the horizon, and you are more than welcome to come along.
Art off the Square is an annual exhibition that I have been a part of for the past 8 years. It starts on the 23rd August and runs until the 25th August in Kilbarchan. The details are below. Looking forward to seeing you there.
Lately, I have been deciding on the colours I want to use first before painting, and have been loving the results. Limiting my palette has had a very freeing effect on my work, allowing me to solely concentrate on what I am creating and not on what colours I’m going to be using as well. I’ve used a lot of water too which has dictated the shapes and patterns I have used as it flows and moves my paint into its own desired shapes.
I’m going to be exploring this method of painting more, not just because I like the paintings I am producing, but also because I am really enjoying myself.
Summer Wildflowers, along with In the Blue, Dancing and Swaying, and a few other wee paintings will be exhibited at Smithy Gallery in their Affordable Art Show from 24 June – 22 July 2018. The Private View is on Sunday 24 June, 2pm–5pm. You are more than welcome.
