WORTHING OPEN HOUSES 2016 VENUE 27 - UPSTAIRS AT CAFE PITTI
18/19 JUNE ⋅ 25/26 JUNE ⋅ 02/03 JULY 2016
WHATS ON DISPLAY?
With the exception of the large canvas “Riding the nets”, this is the first time any of these works have been exhibited. In fact, this is the first time I have ever shown any of my paintings publicly.
I have divided the works into sections each of which are outlined below.
NOTE: The prices in these galleries are special prices for the period of the WAOH dates above. Make sure you act fast to get these low prices.
I started drawing with colour washes many years ago, and for a long time it has been my way of relaxing - being creative without having to think about it.
A number of the works being shown have been used for calendars and cards in previous years (and no doubt some new ones will be added to one for a 2017 calendar).
All are small and completed on location very quickly.
Acrylic is a fairly new medium for me. All are completed in the studio in one or two sessions, (this is mainly to allow the thick coatings to dry).
Although all have their basis in photos I have taken most have had additional elements added, (for example the meditation series are based on real sea and sky but with added figure).
All works are one offs and will not be duplicated.
BOSHAM - is a fairly standard view of the village.
PORTREATH - A stormy moonrise over the bay.
MEDITATIONS - A series of works, (in fact, there is a meditation on the Portreath painting).
PHOTOS - LANDSCAPES
Printed on very high quality “Fine Art” photo-rag paper, all the landscapes are hand-printed by me and signed. No more than 25 “editions” of any image will ever be printed. All editions are printed to order, numbered & recorded.
PHOTOS - PROMENADE
Promenade is my ongoing project on Worthing sea- front. I often sit watching all the different ways people enjoy the promenade space. This project is my way of documenting it in a, (hopefully), artistic manner showing the movement / speed of those travelling along the space. All the images are shot simply, direct to monochrome and printed. Again no more than 25 “editions” of any image will ever be printed. All editions are printed to order, numbered & signed
